6 – Kingfishers


Mrs Mitchell

Hello, we are class 6 and we are called the Kingfishers. I am Mrs Mitchell the class teacher and we are all year 3. We are looking forward to starting the term exploring the book of ‘The owl who was afraid of the dark’ we will be finding out about fear and the things we are afraid or scared of. We will be moving on to find out about the topics listed below. Class 6, 7 and 8 will be planning projects and activities together across the Lower Key Stage. We will be finding out the answers to these questions while developing skills across all areas of the curriculum.

Autumn 1 – What makes the Earth angry? What do rocks tell us about the way the Earth was formed?

Autumn 2 – Why were the Romans so powerful and what did we learn from them?

Spring 1 – Why are magnets attractive?

Spring 2 – Who first lived in Britain?

Summer 1 – How can Usain Bolt move so fast? How did that seed become a sunflower?

Summer 2 – How far can you throw your shadow? Why do so many people choose the Mediterranean for their holidays?

I have recently joined Key Stage 2 after 4 years of teaching in year 1. I am very much looking forward to the challenge and getting to spend time with some familiar faces from the previous years! It will be a very busy, challenging but exciting year!

When I am not at work I enjoy spending time with my 2 daughters and having the time to sit and read a good book or two! I love being outdoors and walking and exploring some of the lovely nature reserves and parks we have in our local environment, when the weather allows.
