Welcome Back


Welcome to Hornbeam Class. We are a class of Year 6 children and our class teacher is Mrs Card.





This term we have started Hola Mexico! We look forward to continuing this topic in the following term for a few more weeks.


The children have enjoyed researching the culture, the georgraphy and making comparisons between life in Mexico and England. They have made beautiful art work to represent the masks used in the Day of the Dead festival.

The children have produced fantastic work about Mexico. Below are some of the work the children have created for homework and in class.

Hornbeam have recently started a fantastic new book, The Arrival by Shaun Tan. The book contains a series of pictures depicting the struggles of refugees and those that have been displaced. The children are thoroughly enjoying the book and looking forward to seeing the rest of the images. 


This week, we have written a diary entry from the perspective of one of the characters. We're really excited to see descriptive language used by the children in order to create atmosphere within their writing.

We have recently started using Power Maths, which the children seem to be really enjoying as it introduces the children to different methods to solving a problem. We're currently focusing on division by using manipulatives and pictorial methods. The children have produced fantastic work so far and we're looking forward to using Power Maths in the following term exploring new concepts. 



This documents provides a range of questions for both fiction and non-fiction texts, which will develop specific reading skills and strategies. Please ensure you ask a few questions whilst hearing your child read as this will help to develop their key comprehension skills.
