Violet Class

Year 6- Violet Class
Welcome to our class page. Here you will find relevant information about our learning in Violet class.
The adults who will be working in year 6 are:  Mr King (Class Teacher) and Mrs Spry (HLTA) 
In the Autumn term, we will be learning about 'The Victorians', with the aim of answering the question: Did the Victorians transform Penzance?
We will visit the local area to witness first-hand some of the changes that happened in the Victorian era and use secondary sources from local museums and archives to help debate our topic question.
As part of our wider experiences, we will visit Penlee House Museum and Helston Museum to develop our knowledge and understanding of the Victorian era. 
In the Spring term, we will be learning about the 'The Anglo Saxons and Vikings', with the aim of answering the question: Who had the most impact on Britain, the Anglo Saxons or Vikings?
We develop our concept understanding of 'Invasion' in History; explore the lives of people in the past and investigate the changes that happened during the Anglo Saxon and Viking invasions of Britain.
Please see below our 'Small Step Overviews', Topic Leaflets' and 'Knowledge Organisers' for a detailed breakdown of our learning this year. 
We will be sharing photos of our learning on our class page and important messages through email and the Eschools App.  If you are not receiving letters or messages through the Eschools APP, please see me or the school office. 
In addition to this, the children will continue to use Microsoft TEAMS as a digital learning platform and resource base for parent/carers. Homework will be set through TEAMS. 
If you were not able to attend the Class 6 'Welcome Meeting', please view the Powerpoint in your child's account or see your emails for a PDF version of this.

Mr King
