Kara's and Annie's Class

Welcome to our class page. We are a year 5 and 6 class situated in the quad part of the school. Our class in made up of 7 boys and 1 girl. We are lucky to have two teachers in our class; Kara is taking part in the Schools Direct teaching program and Annie supports her and teaches on the days that she is at university. As well as  Annie and Kara we also have Joanna and Marek to support us, they work with us throughout the week.

The Spring Term has started well, the children have come back rested and ready to work hard. We were sorry to say good bye to Ant, who has gone to spend a term at another school as part of his training, however we are pleased to welcome Kara who has joined us in his place for the spring term. Our Topic this term is Mess, Muck and Mixtures. As you can imagine this will involve a lot of experiments, exploration and getting messy. We can’t wait!

Amongst the many exciting activities we have planned we will be reading George’s Marvellous Medicine by Roald Dahl; designing and creating our own monsters using a whole range of weird and wonderful materials and fabrics; carrying out experiments on everyday materials, as well as making marvelous mixtures using a range of reactive ingredients. You can see a more detailed description of the work we have planned on our topic grid. We hope you will check back soon to see how we have got on.
