Could we ask parents to confirm with school via email or telephone if you are a front-line worker and require provision for your child. Children who should continue to attend school are either those children of single parents who are identified as key workers, or those children where both parents are keyworkers.

Everest Class (Y6)

 smiley   Welcome to Year 6 (Everest Class)

Mrs Preece is the lead teacher in Year 6 and is supported by Mrs Tunnard. In Year 6, we enjoy growing our knowledge and applying it in lots of interesting and fun ways to help make us remember.  In Year 6 the children make the most of every opportunity available to them: representing our school teams, Piercy, Brook, Daffen and Ebsworth as Team Captains; leading training and supporting other children in a variety of school initiatives, e.g. Take 5 Breathing Ambassadors.  The pupils have very important daily jobs to do:  taking snack orders, ringing the bell and organising prayers and music for collective worship.

This term Everest Class will be learning about  Ancient Greece in History, alongside this in Geography we will be carrying out a study of Greece.  In Science we will be learning about Living Things and Their Habitats and Animals Including Humans.

In art we have been looking at different types of Greek patterns. We then created different designs and drew them onto porcelain pots.
