Buzzard 2021 - 2022
Buzzard class 2021 - 2022
Welcome to our class page!
Our happy team is made up for 27 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 British settlements through a study of the Anglo Saxons and Scots. They will learn about life in Anglo-Saxon times, design settlements, research land use and compare towns and cities with rural areas.
Through our scientific studies we will be exploring Earth and Space and in particular the Solar System and how the movement of the Earth and Moon affect day and night and seasons.
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 Friday afternoon with Mrs Connery and 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: change from Wednseday starting in January). 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.
