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 River deep, mountain high! We will be focusing on Dartmoor National park and Yellowstone National park. Primarily Geography based, we will:

  • Compare Yellowstone and Dartmoor, looking at similarities and differences.
  • Creating our own symbol for Dartmoor national park
  • Writing myths, inspired by Beowful, based on Dartmoor
  • Use our geographical language to describe Yellowstone and Dartmoor
  • Look at the key features of Yellowstone: creating information leaflets aimed at tourists.
  • Creating graphs to compare the temperatures of the parks.
  • Debating about the reintegration of wolves on Yellowstone.
  • Creating cam mechanisms in Design and Technology, based on an animal from one of the parks.

Spring Term

Our previous topic was Shang Dyntasy! We focused on this Ancient civilisation and we:

  • Created non-chronological reports on The Shang Dyntasy
  • Looked at the importance of oracle bones: the discovery of The Shang and what made them so signicant.
  • Created our own hieorglphys on our own designs of oracle bones
  • Created Chinese artefacts as part of our art topic out of clay.
