We hope you enjoy visiting our webpage which shares with you the exciting learning that takes place in our classroom. Year 6 is a significant year for our children and their learning opportunities. We encourage them to take part in all aspects of learning, including homework, in order for them to maximise their full potential during their transition to high school. Please follow us on Twitter @Class5_StDavids for daily updates and reminders.

Oak Class are learning about the planet’s coldest lands: the Arctic and Antarctic regions. They will compare the climate, landscape and natural resources of these areas, researching similarities and differences. Children will learn how to use grid references, lines of latitude and longitude, contour lines and map symbols to identify human and physical features. They will study facts and figures: climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, as well as composing evocative poems about the Northern Lights. Whilst studying the Indigenous people, they will learn about types of settlement and land use, economic activity including trade links, and the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water. Tourism in the Antarctic will be explored in the form of a case study and an insight into historical explorers will be researched. From a science perspective, the children will learn about classifying animals, animal adaptations and evolution. We are excited to take on board this amazing project and will keep you posted with our progress on twitter.
