Deer Class (Y6)
Welcome to Deer Class
My name is Mrs Lawrence and I am so lucky to be the Deer Class teacher this year. As well as being a class teacher, I am also leading English, PE and PSHE across the school. I have lots of exciting ideas to try and make the last year of primary school exciting and memorable for everyone.
Our PE days this year are Monday and Wednesday afternoons.
PPA will be on a Monday afternoon. This will be covered by Mike and another member of staff.
Library books will be changed on a Monday.
This week, we have been learning about the Battle of Britain so in forest school we created aeroplanes using natural resources such as sticks, grass, leaves and pine cones. We enjoyed working as a team and had to use our resilience when things didn't quite go to plan. We have worked hard in English this week writing diaries and narratives about an air-raid. We are really proud of our artwork where we drew a spitfire which was a plane used during the Battle of Britain.
On Friday, we had a special treat! Mrs Hudson kindly came into our class and made pizzas with us. This is because she promised to make them last term but unfortunately we had to isolate. They were delicious and we enjoyed making them.
This week we have been introduced to our new topic which is WW2. We have read some of 'Machine Gunners' and 'Letters from a lighthouse' which are both set duing WW2. In music, we learnt how to sing the song 'Happy' and we sang it in two groups where the boys sang the main melody and the girls sang backing vocals. As well as this, we learnt about cyber bully and how to respond to different scenarios online. We have also practised how to respond to a fire drill. Mrs Harris said we walked really sensibly out of the building and lined up.
