Hello and welcome to the Kingfishers class page.
My name is Mrs Walker and I am very excited about teaching Year 6, particularly as I have the opportunity to teach lots of you again. I am looking forward to beginning the year and the topics that we are covering. Within the school, I am Science and PSHE leader and a member of the SLT.
At home, I enjoy spending time with my family, going to different places, enjoying walks and spending lots of time at home, playing games and reading.
This page will be updated throughout the year with different aspects we will be covering as well as information based upon the learning that has already taken place, useful websites and homework.
I cannot wait to see you all and begin your Year Six journey.
Our topics this year are:
Autumn 1 Full Steam Ahead
Autumn 2 Britain Through The Ages
Spring 1 Earliest Civilisations
Spring 2 Extreme Earth
Summer 1 The Seafaring King Who Had Six Wives
Summer 2 Crime and Punishment
Below are some links to websites that are really useful to use throughout the year:
Work over the Spring Term
We have been completing work on our new Science topic - The Circulatory System. We have spent time investigating our pulse rate and the effects different aspects can have on it. The first thing we did was look at the differences between different members of our class and their pulse rates. We then looked at the affect different forms of exercise have on our bodies. We will be using this information after Easter to generate line graphs and form conclusions based upon this.
We will post examples of the line graphs and conclusions once we have completed them.
