Welcome to Shaftsbury Class!
This term our theme is Frozen Kingdoms. During this term we will be learning about the Antarctic and the Artic. In Geography, we will be learning where these places are, their similarities and differences and the effects of human's on these areas. In History, we will learn about the discovery of different polar regions and what happened to The Titanic. Science will focus on animal adaptation particularly of those animals that live in polar regions. Our knowledge from these lessons will also help us in our writing when we write a non-chronological report about Antarctica and letters from the Titanic.
This term's work will be available online using SeeSaw. This is the best way to do home learning as I will provide video's and explanations. If you have requested a paper pack, these will be available once a fortnight at school. You must bring back your previous work so that I can mark this. The next pack will be available on Monday 1st February.
Look at some of the amazing work that has been done at home.
You should follow this timetable for online learning which is available on SeeSaw. Children should be spending around 4 hours every day working. This timetable gives suggested times that children should be working with time for breaks and lunchtime.
Timetable for the week commencing 25th January 2021
This document shows you all the things we are going to learn during our Frozen Kingdom theme.
In preparation for our summer theme, the children will be working on a project that will take a few weeks to complete. Each week they will be set a task towards the project. Year 6 will be working on creating a website for a Spy School.
Read the letter that the class received.
Week commencing 25th January.
Think about spy school and what it would be like. What lessons would be taught? What uniform would you have to wear? Who would the teachers be? Where is it?
Create a mind map of your ideas.
