Owl Class is the Year 6 Class at Trent and we are taught by Mr Hamblin. There are 16 pupils in Owl Class and we are very proud of our large and bright classroom in the original part of the school building. We even have a chaise longue in our reading area!
Whilst we are focused on our end of year SATs tests, we still enjoy a rich and wide-ranging curriculum, applying our skills to a variety of tasks. As year 6 children, we enjoy many responsibilities around school, including membership of pupil voice committees and assembly monitors. We also take responsibility for assemblies on Friday, allowing us to further explore that week's theme.
During the summer term, we are learning about both the Mayan Civilization and healthy living. Our work on the Maya will involve learning about their place in world history and where they were located geographically. We will also explore their major achievements and any impact that they may have had on our lives today. As we move to explore healthy living, this will mostly involve work on the function of the heart and lungs. This work will be integrated into work on diet and exercise, meaning that it will be regularly discussed as part of PE lessons.
As we move towards SATs, we will be revising all of the key areas of maths which we will need in preparation for these tests. Once these have been completed, we will then apply our knowledge of maths to a wide array of areas, allowing us to show our understanding of all of the maths that we have learned during the year.
In Year 6, we are also lucky to experience lots of science, both through science focus weeks and weekly science sessions. In addition to our work on the circulatory system, we will be exploring evolution, inheritance and how to classify living things. Much of this work will fit into our work on the Mayans.
We hope that you enjoy exploring our page and the rest of the website.
