Welcome to Hawkings Class!
Teacher: Mrs Duffin
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Lee, Mrs Bunting and Mrs Knight
Term 5 and 6
Our topic for the summer terms is ‘Planet Earth’.
We kicked off our topic by looking at the continents of the world and how climate varies from place to place. We then looked specifically at deserts and have learnt how not only plants and animals can survive in these hostile conditions, but also humans! We have also looked at how environments can change and we made posters to teach farmers how to look after their soil to keep it nice and fertile.
Coming up, we are looking forward to exploring a little closer to home in our habitats unit.
In literacy, we are currently reading ‘Varjak Paw’ by SF Said and we are absolutely loving it. We can’t wait to find out who is behind the ‘Vanishings’.
Read our class letter below to find out what else we have coming up.
This term we have been developing our tennis skills – in particular, our forehand and backhand technique. We have also been playing rounders with a focus on our fielding.
