Welcome to Class 6 - Mr Hopson
What we have been up to...
Adam Bushnell's Author Visit
Class 6 were lucky enough to get to meet local author, Adam Bushnell. Adam talked to us all about story writing and helped the children come up with some amazing characters using animals from the local wildlife.
Autumn Art Day
The children enjoyed an autumnal themed art day by using the environment around the school to create amazing artwork. Class 6 made their very own leaf collages and used various surfaces to make rubbings based on the artist Max Ernst.
Germs and Hygiene
During our first week, the children in Class 6 investigated how we can stay safe from harmful germs. We looked at how to properly clean our hands and even experimented with how germs can affect a slice of bread (it was not pretty!)
The children have been reading the story of Christopher Nibble, so invited some of his furry friends into the classroom to help us come up with some ideas. Graham the guinea pig and his pals were very popular with the class.
Class 6 really enjoyed this year's Harvest Festival. Our unique performance of Pop Go The Peas had popping noises echoing around the church, much to the amusement of our guests.
As part of our geography lesson, the children got to explore maps of our surrounding area and used their map reading skills to navigate around the school. We also looked at Google Maps to search for local and national landmarks.
Searching for Mini-Beasts!
Class 6 have been investigating micro-habitats to see which creepy crawlies they could find all around the school grounds. We uncovered quite a selection of mini-beasts and talked about why they were best suited to the environment they live in.
