Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Mrs Wicks and Mr Green -Year 6

Welcome to Class 6 with Mrs Wicks and Mr Green.

 

 

This page  has useful information about the day to day running of Class 6 and  about what we get up to  in our busy, exciting classroom. 

 

In Class 6 Mrs Wicks teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mr Green teaches on Thursdays and Fridays. We both  work alongside our teaching partner, Miss Wilkinson.

 

This term our topic is War and Peace (please see curriculum overview) We will investigate the history of WW1 and discover what led up to the start of one of the largest wars in history. We will discuss the significance of events within the war and how alliances between countries, power hungry empires and the assassination of an archduke began WW1. We will explore what life was like for the soldiers on the front line as well as what life was like at home for the women and children who kept Britain running. We will investigate and map countries that were involved in World War One and recognise the differences between Europe in 1914 and modern day Europe.

 

Our science focus is Electricity and Light. 

  • Electricity-We will use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram. We will compare and give reasons for variations in how components function.
  • Light-The children will learn how light travels and how this enables us to see objects. They will have the opportunity to make a functioning periscope such as those used in the trenches, finding out about mirrors and the angles of reflection and incidence.

 

In English we will write :

  • Letters: create an emotive and historically accurate letter from the trenches
  • Poetry: emotive poem based upon Beyond the Lines and Siegfried Sassoon’s poem ‘How to Die'.
  • Convert narrative to play scripts: Historical fiction based on War Horse. Children will compare play and film versions and also with other World War 1 fiction.
  • Diaries: Based on the Christmas Truce
  • Biographies- Paul Nash official war artist

Our class text for this term is War Horse- Michael Morpurgo

 

In P.E. we will focus on tag rugby and gymnastics. 

 

If you have/would like to share any information or expertise on any of the above, please let Mrs Wicks and Mr Green know!
