Hawks

Welcome to the all new Hawks class page
 
Hawks class is one of our two Year 6 classes, where our children are in their final year of Primary education before their next learning step and their transition to Year 7 and secondary school.  At this upper end of Key Stage 2 the ethos is very much on developing the sense of independence and responsibility: we have high expectations of our children, particularly as role models for the rest of the school, but we also have high amounts of fun along the way!
 
On this page you will find lots of useful information about what we are up to on a daily basis in class, as well as how children's learning can be supported at home, both from a parent's perspective, as well as how children can learn independently at home in their spare time.  We hope you find it useful.

Latest news:
 
03/03/19: Thoroughly enjoyable Darwin walks last week as part of our topic, Evolution and Inheritance.  The guides really brought the early life of Charles Darwin in Shrewsbury to life and made us more knowledgeable about places we probably walk past frequently and don't notice.  On Wednesday 6th we have a SATs meeting for parents, 4.45pm in the studio.  Anyone unable to make it will have the information we hand out released to them following this meeting.
 
06/01/19: We hope you have all had a great Christmas and New Year, and are still smiling at the fantastic performances we had of 'Primary School Christmas Musical' in the last week of term!  Please make sure that you have all you need with you on a daily basis for school: PE kit, reading and homework journals.  Homework will soon move to revision guides in the preparation for SATs in May.  More information will follow on this front soon.
 
25/11/18  What a week at Arthog!  Fantastic teamwork confidence and composure on display from all children in Y6.  We have all learnt a bit about what we are capable of, and this will really set us up for the rest of our final year at primary school.  Now we look towards our Christmas performance, with auditions having taken place, and rehearsals to begin this week.
