Mrs Walker

Welcome to Mrs Walker's Class

Year 6

 

Spring Term 2020

Welcome to the Spring Term of Year 6. This term will be a very busy and an important one, as we will be working extremely hard preparing for our Year 6 SATs in May. Although we will be working extremely hard for our SATs, we will also be having great fun along the way and we have lots of exciting work planned. At the heart of everything we do, will be hopefully making your last year at Highfields a memorable one!

 

So what have we got in store for you in the SpringTerm?

We have some really exciting work planned for the Spring Term. We will complete our work on Ancient Egypt and then move on to studying our local area. We will study local art, pottery and artefacts. We will investigate the industry of the local area in the past -the coal mines and pot banks. We will look at the lives of the people who worked in those industries- their living and working conditions. We will discover local famous people -

Clarice Cliff

Josiah Wedgewood, Clarice Cliff, Reginald Mitchell- to name but a few!

 

Our Story Topic this term is Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo and we will be using this text to inspire our writing and creative work.

 

Please take a look at our Spring Term Curriculum Planner to see what exciting work we have planned for each subject area.
