Welcome to Hawks!
Miss Hall, Class Teacher
Welcome to Hawks’ Class 2020/21
Hawk’s teaching team are very pleased to be welcoming our children back to school after an unprecedented ending to the last academic year. We are determined the children will once again enjoy the benefits of being at school with their friends and settle well into the routine that many will have missed.
Right from the start of the year, children will be busy, with some sitting the 11+ in September and all applying for places in Secondary School. Anybody requiring any help or clarification with the Secondary School admissions process please contact reception via email or telephone.
We have many exciting plans for this year, which starts in Autumn Term with our topic of Mayas. Children will learn about the Maya way of life: where they lived, how they lived, what they ate, religion etc. Our art unit of work will link to the topic and focus of sketching still life. In science, we will begin with evolution, looking at the work of Charles Darwin and how variety and inheritance in genetics shapes our lives. Towards the end of this unit, we usually invite a fossils expert in to school; however, this year, this may not happen (but we will keep our fingers crossed!). We will then move on to the circulatory system which will give the children an insight into how blood, lungs and heart work in the human body. Our RE focus this term is the life-style and beliefs of Hindus and Islam. In this unit of work, children will learn about the similarities and differences in some religions. In DT, we will be programming a moving vehicle using a computer and building a computer programmable vehicle.
We hope the children will be as excited by our topics as we are and enjoy the run up to the Christmas break.
