Welcome to Class 6S
I am Miss Stalker the class teacher and we are supported by Mrs Shaw (teaching assistant) and Miss Crozier (support assistant)
Welcome back. I am hoping you all had a brilliant holiday and are ready for another exciting, and busy, half term. As always, we have lots of fun experiences and lessons planned which we are confident you will enjoy.
Our topic for this half term is ‘Titanic - the tip of the iceberg’
The main areas of learning during this topic are history, geography and design technology. The children will be learning all about what it was like on board the Titanic, comparing the experiences of first, second and third class passengers and understanding the social structure in the 1900s, identifying the scheduled route on a world map using longitude and latitude coordinates, listening to survivor stories, learning about the time era in which the Titanic set sail and comparing it to the modern day, learning about how the events on the night of the Titanic influenced change in relation to the manufacturing of cruise liners and safety procedures, designing and making a wooden model Titanic ship and investigating how icebergs are formed! Wow! It is exciting just writing all of that - what an amazing topic it is going to be! I can’t wait to share it with you.
A newsletter will will follow very shortly.
