Welcome to the class page of Hawking class (6B). We are looking forward to lots of exciting learning and collaboration this year! Year six is always a busy time as we work towards the SATs assessments and prepare the children for secondary transition. We look forward to sharing our class learning with you on this page. Please check below for regular updates, photos and invitations celebrations of the pupils' work.
Term 2: AD 900
In line with the 2014 National curriculum, which asks primary school pupils to learn about ancient civilisations, we will be spending the term developing our knowledge of the Maya, Benin and Islamic civilisations of AD900.
In order to do so, Hawking class created a scale model of the villages and towns these civilisations would have lived in. Then we compared them to what we have now in Dartford.
Term 3: 'Space Explorers'
We started next term's topic early this week by watching the launch of the British astronaut, Tim Peake, into space for his six month stay on the International Space Station!
We have since created the conditions that were present during the creation of the moon...take a look!
Our topic this term is 'The Holiday Show'. During this topic, we will be focusing our learning on the variety of cultures throughout the United Kingdom and across the globe. There will be a particular focus on the use of land and how humans have altered it in order to survive.
The main subject focus of this topic will be geography; children will be locating the world's countries and using maps to look more closely at Europe and North and South America.
On Friday 26th February, we will also become tourists for the day when we explore London on our very own open top bus! Make sure all permission slips are handed into the office by Monday 22nd February.
