CURRICULUM ==> CLASS LINKS

Welcome to the Kiowa Class page. Here you can see some of our displays and find out what we have been doing recently. We are a Year 6 class and are taught by Mr Harding and Miss Harris.

Kiowa Class have started the year in a really positive manner and shown a great attitude to their learning. Year 6 is a very important year and we have been using classroom resources (like our interactive screen) to create visual represenations in mathematics and to explain our thinking in other subjects. It's always good to use them with a learning partner as it helps us get our ideas across!

The class were fascinated by First News and Picture News reports detailing the effect of hurricanes in the Carribean during September. As a result we learnt about how hurricanes form and how they impact on the lives of people in their path. We learnt about the people who help in these disaster zones and this lead on to the topic of our class assembly 'Heroes'. Here you can see us researching hurricanes in the school library.

For our assembly we learnt about famous heroes in different fields such as Neil Armstrong, Martin Luther King Jr or Emily Pankhurst to name but a few. We also thought we should praise unsung heroes who don't get the recognition they deserve like doctors, RNLI volunteers and even parents.

As part of our topic for this term we have been learning about World War 2 and one of the best places to visit in the county to learn about this key period of history is Pendennis Castle. As we explored we realised how the castle had evolved over hundreds of years from the Tudor era, to the Civil War through to Victorian times and how it had defended Falmouth in World War 2. It made us realise how brave the people were who served in times of conflict.

We noticed how technology had allowed the armaments to advance from small iron cannons to huge naval guns. We particularly enjoyed watching the reenactment of the Tudor cannons being fired, the smoke added to the atmosphere perfectly.
