Hawks

Welcome to the Hawks class page
 
Hawks class is one of our two Year 6 classes, where our children are in the final two years of Primary education - UKS2 - 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.

07/03/21: Well, we did it!  We survived another lockdown.  Touch wood, as things continue to improve, we can stay together in school for the rest of the school year.  Secondary letters have arrived at home with confirmed choices, so this transition all gets a bit more real now!
 
This term our topic is 'Sieges, Settlements and Solutions'.  This starts by looking at the Viking invasion of Britain, before moving on to looking at why people decide to settle somewhere, and then the problems and solutions that are brought about by this.  As the weather moves more towards Spring, it should certainly be an exciting term together.

On returning to school on 8 March, we had the amazing discovery of Viking artefacts in our grounds, discovered during fence replacement work.  Here we are exploring what we can see and what we then think we can find out about their owner from them.
Below is a selection of the work we completed over Autumn term.  We investigated the purpose of pulleys, how they work as mechanisms and what they are used for in daily life.  We then designed and evaluated our own for the purpose of safely carrying Annie Edson Taylor, 'Queen of Niagara Falls', down safely!
The links below include another way we share our learning with the world via our class blog.  We also use core interactive and exciting programmes to support our learning, which can be logged into at home using the children's provided usernames and passwords.
We are currently using Microsoft Teams to set homework and all supporting documents are available via the children's individual logins. General supporting documents for our core learning are available below:
