Welcome to Peacock Class - Year 6
We are named after the presentation peacock so we like to take particular care with our presentation. We are a fun and enthusiastic class who love learning and have a desire to reach our potential.
During the autumn term, we studied the Victorians which included a visit to the SS Great Britain in Bristol. For our art topic, we studied work by the artist William Morris and produced our own prints using his work as inspiration.
The spring term is a busy term in Year 6 as we prepare for our SATs but we like to have lots of fun as well. In geography we are looking at our local area and comparing it to London. We will also be studying democracy and the running of Parliament in preparation for our visit to London. In music, we are learning to play the glockenspiel. This involves composing and performing our own pieces.
A highlight of our year is the Year 6 visit to London. This will take place on Thursday 27th and Friday 28th March. The trip will be a whistle-stop tour of London, including a visit to the Houses of Parliament; a ride of the London Eye; a sight-seeing walk taking in Buckingham Palace, St James’ Park and Horse Guards Parade and a river cruise along the Thames. It is guaranteed to be a fun packed two day adventure.
As we’re the top of the school, we set an excellent example to the younger pupils and we are involved in various leadership roles, including Peer Supporters, Shed Monitors, Wet-play Monitors and Sports Leaders.
