Owl Class

Welcome to Owl class, we are the Year 6 children of the school. Miss Broadhead is the teacher of Owl class and our teaching assistant is Mrs. Vaughan, who we share with year 5.

This term our topic is Frozen Kingdom! Primarily Geography based, we will:

  • Using our geography skills to locate The Poles
  • Compare the Arctic and Antarctica
  • Understand Longitude and Latitude
  • Learn about the famous polar explorer, Robert Falcon Scott, who was from Plymouth.
  • Creating and designing a piece of polar clothing.
  • Creating non-chronological reports on a Polar animal of our choice.


In Autumn, our Topic was World at War. We focused mainly on Geography for the first half term and History the second. We did lots of great learning:

  •  We looked at why Plymouth was a targeted area during the war.
  •  Compared Plymouth during World War II to now.
  •  Looked at where children evacuated to and why.
  •  Visited Crown Hill Fort to understand its role during both wars.
  • Designed and created Anderson shelters and tested them.
  • Learnt about The Blitz
  • Listened to and analysed the Queen's first radio broadcast - we then created our our speeches.
  • Had WW2 Day in school, we came dressed as War Time Children.
  • Created Remembrance Art.
