For many hours a day your child's classroom becomes their world as they explore, discover and create. Please browse through this class pages to see what your child has been focusing on. We hope that this will give you increased insight into their classroom life, and offer the children a chance to display their fantastic work! 


Theme: The Frozen Kingdom/ Y Deyrnas o Rew



Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands, which are incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly.

This term, we’ll start by understanding how animals and plants could possibly live in such harsh, cold environments. Using globes and maps, we’ll identify the Polar Regions, comparing the Arctic and Antarctic. We’ll also think about how we can protect the polar environment. Then, we’ll investigate the tragic story of the RMS Titanic, and find out about the people on board.

When we’re more familiar with the Polar Regions, we’ll write exciting diary entries from the perspective of brave explorers. Researching our favourite polar animals will be fun, and we’ll create animal artwork inspired by the Inuit people. We’ll experiment with digital photography and create amazing effects using paints and dyes. At the end of the project, we’ll present what we have learned and construct a model of the Titanic/ Igloo!

Help your child prepare for their project:

This half term, we’re going to learn about the coldest places on Earth. Why not watch a documentary such as the BBC Frozen Planet series together? You could also freeze pieces of fruit with fruit juice in lolly moulds, to create frozen treats with a hidden surprise. Alternatively, work together to create a snowy collage.




Homework is set for pupils in Year 6 every Wednesday. Pupils will be given literacy and numeracy tasks to be completed at home on a weekly basis that is linked to work completed in class. The work will be collected on a Monday, allowing for marking time and an opportunity to further support them with the work-where and when appropriate. 


If you have the internet at home and access to a computer then your child can do the set homework on HWB and J2e.
