Welcome to Hawks!
Miss Hall, Class Teacher
Welcome to Hawks Class 2019/20
As always, children joining Hawks class are looking forward to a busy but rewarding year. From the very start of the academic year, some Year 6 will be sitting the 11+ and applying for places for Secondary School. If anyone requires any help or clarification with the Secondary School admissions process then please drop into school and see Miss Revell, myself or Mr Allen.
All children in Hawks have much to look forward to this year starting with autumn term when our topics will be the Vikings in Term 1 and Forces in Term 2. Children will learn about how the Vikings invaded England and what the Anglo Saxons did to protect their land. Following our unit of work we will be inviting parents in to school to show what we have learnt. In term 2 we will learn about forces. This unit of work is very hands on and is always a favourite with students. They will be learning about the forces around them and how these are evident in everyday life. In this term, Hawks will also be inviting parents in to school for our parent collective worship (date to be confirmed).
In the spring term our starting topic will be Ancient Egyptians. The children will be visiting The Collection in Lincoln and spending a day enjoying consolidating their learning with a variety of activities, including: dressing as an Egyptian, digging for relics and treasure and making an ancient Egyptian artefact. Later in the term we will have a science focus studying animals including humans. This unit looks at digestion and keeping healthy. For the older children this includes looking at drugs (both bad and good) and the harmful effects of some drugs on the body.
During the summer term the children will be swimming, competing in sports day and Year 6 will be practising hard for the end of year production and Leavers’ Service.
Our first topic in the summer term will be science based linked to electricity. Children will learn how to make an electrical circuit and problem solve how to make a broken circuit work. In summer term 2, Hawks will be looking at a topic that is very much in the news at the moment: recycling, reusing and reducing waste – in particular, plastic waste. We will also take this opportunity to look at recycling and renewable energy.
