This term in Pavilion Class...
We’ve had a brilliant start to Year 6 in Pavilion Class. The class have returned to school with an impressively mature attitude towards their learning. We are enjoying our morning routine of philosophical thinking and waking and shaking our bodies during the popular morning and afternoon wellbeing walks.
Many of the children were fascinated by our opening topic ‘Brainwave’- which asked them to think about how they learn, ways in which they can improve their learning. I was really impressed by the way pupils used different strategies to help them learn the beginning of the Periodic Table of Elements! It is also good to see the class developing and demonstrating their own growth mindsets by embracing challenge, trying new things and learning that it is okay to struggle when something is unfamiliar.
We will soon begin our next topic ‘The Great, The Bold and The Brave’ which will compare and contrast two classical civilisations – Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.
In literacy this term, children have already been practising spelling and revising words classes in grammar. When we begin our next topic, the children will study Greek Mythology and use this as the basis for original narratives inspired by the classic texts.
In science we will be learning about the circulatory system in humans and animals. Children will learn each of the parts and their function, and also learn how water, nutrients and oxygen are transported through the body. We will also spend time consider the effect of a healthy diet and exercise on our circulatory system.
In PE, we will be learning attacking, defending and ball retention techniques in handball. The children will also be developing gymnastics sequences using different elements, such as rolls, balances and flight.
