Welcome to Chimps' Class
In Chimps' class Mr Payne is the class teacher. Classroom support is given by Mrs Wilson and Miss Wooff.
For the second half of Spring term we are learning about the historic events of 1066. In English, we will be writing explanation texts to explain how Duke William conquered Britain to become King William I. In our history lessons, we will be looking at the events of 1066 which culminated in the Battle of Hastings. We will learn about who was involved and what each of them wanted. We will consider how the events of 1066 had an impact upon Britain as we know it today.
On 19th February we launched our new topic with a trip to Clitheroe Castle, where we re-enacted the Battle of Hastings, handled weapons from the period and learnt about the design of a Motte and Bailey castle.
In our Science work we will be learning about how living things are classified. We will be using our computing skills to produce interactive presentations that give information about the different classes of animals in a given habitat.
Christmas project homework
Chimps class have been getting very festive with their most recent project homework.
On the 20th October 6C held their Business Week sale. They made a range of products themed around Halloween - trick or treat baskets, ghost lollys, monster bookmarks and spooky pom poms. The children raised £60 which will go towards their leaver's hoodies at the end of the year.
On the 26th September Year 6 had a 'survival day' at Brockholes Wildlife Reserve, near Preston. Whilst there, they learnt how to make fires and build shelters. They also went pond-dipping to study how different invertebrates are adapted to survive.
