Buzzard 2022 - 2023
Buzzard class 2022 - 2023
Welcome to our class page!
Our happy team is made up for 29 wonderful children from years 5 and 6. Both year groups will learn in accordance to the National Curriculum key objectives for their age. With the children at the core, our rich curriculum and love of learning will be based on our school core values of Respect, Individuality, Creativity, Honesty, Empathy and Resilience. As a team, we will not strive to learn because we have to, but to learn because we want to.
This term the children will be gaining a deeper understanding of World War 2 during our History and Art sessions. They will learn about how the war was fought, the lives and roles of Churchill and Hitler, the impact of the Blitz and the Battle of Britain.
Through our scientific studies we will be exploring Electricity and in particular how light installations work, drawing circuit diagrams and creating dimmer switches.
We will also be losing ourselves in a range of the most incredible books and using these as a base for our writing that will be for a range of purposes. We will be applying our mathematical thinking across the curriculum and letting creativity fill our classroom and beyond.
The children will be learning in Forest School every other Monday afternoon with Mrs Mochrie. Please ensure your child comes to school suitably dressed as the British weather can be very unpredictable. This includes wellies or boots and a waterproof coat.
We will be doing PE each week, on a Tuesday (Note: the children will also be swimming on a Wednesday afternoon for the first half term). Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their kit which may include tracksuit bottoms and waterproof jacket as PE will be outside for the foreseeable future.
At the top of this page, you will find a link to the homework menus and possible ways to support your children.
I am really looking forward to working with Buzzard class this year and helping the children become excellent role models to the younger children across the school.
