Welcome to Orangutans!
6O is taught by Miss Holland and Mrs Smith is our TA.
We are looking forward to a busy year full of hard work, new learning and new challenges!
During Summer 1 we will be learning all about the Titanic!
Our theme lessons will be based on the Titanic. We will be exploring the world's most famous ship, its inventors and why everything went wrong on that disastrous maiden voyage!
In English we will be focusing closely on grammar, punctuation and spelling and in Maths we will be continuing to consolidate our learning in preparation for our SATs, which begin on Monday 13th May.
If you have any questions or you want any more information then please come and speak to Miss Holland!
Our visit to Clitheroe Castle
by Eloise and Holly
On the 27th of February, the two year six classes at Woodlea Junior School went on a trip to Clitheroe Castle. Once we had arrived, the historians introduced themselves and we were split into three groups, each going with a different historian. We went with Ellie first and learnt about shields, spears, swords, bows and arrows. Then we went to the next room and made armour for an egg using bubble wrap and card. We went to the keep and dropped the eggs off the platform. Lastly, before lunch we acted out the key events of 1066, and I (Eloise) got to play the role of William the Conqueror!
We had lunch outside as it was a beautiful day, then in the afternoon we learnt a bit more about the keep, exploring it and hearing about its history. Also, we learnt about heraldry and where symbols come from for families, for example our Woodlea badge shows that we are from Lancashire, with the red rose, and the bee represents a bee keeper - probably a past head teacher. Finally, we made motte and bailey castles out of sand and other materials - it was very fun!
A great day all around!
