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.
