Owl Class is the Year 5/6 Class at Trent and we are taught by Mr Hamblin and Mrs Bevan. There are 28 pupils in Owl Class and we are very proud of our large, bright classroom in the middle of the school.
As year 5 and 6 children, we enjoy many responsibilities around school, including leading roles in our family groups, collective worship monitors, office duty and we also take responsibility for cleaning the hall after lunch. In addition, we plan and lead collective worship on Tuesdays, allowing us to further explore that week's theme.
Whilst Year 6 are focused on the end of year SATs tests, we still enjoy a rich and wide-ranging curriculum, applying our skills to a variety of tasks. During the course of the year, we will be exploring topics including The Stone Age, Africa, The Anglo Saxons and will also explore local history, healthy living and creating structures. For more information on our topics, pop over to our curriculum page.
Our maths work this term will mostly involve work on measurement as we look at converting units, area and perimeter. Much of our work will also involve revising and extending our knowledge of the 4 operations. When we learn about an area of maths, we are always keen to apply this knowledge to problem solving to show that we can apply our maths.
Our science work this year will be split into focus weeks where each year group is taught separately. This allows us to really get our teeth into a topic. Keep an eye on our curriculum page for details of which science topic is coming up next!
We hope that you enjoy exploring our page and the rest of the website.
