Welcome to Windsor!
Years 5 and 6 work together under the direction of the class teacher Mrs Kilding. We are also taught PE by Mr Baker and Spanish by Mrs Myers. In addition we have the support and help of Mrs Ibbetson. Together this team make sure that we have access to a rich and varied curriculum with support and encouragement where necessary.
Every morning we talk, think, investigate and practice our maths skills and understanding. We read both independently and as a class and listen to the poem of the day. As part of our topic web for this term - Myths and Legends - we will be reading The House with Chicken Legs by Sophie Anderson, a re-imagined tale of the Slavic myth of Baba Yaga. Linked to this we will study Russia, comparing it to our own country. We will look at classification of living things in science and bring the classroom outside in outdoor learning week. We will also welcome some baby eels from the ARK trust and look forward to looking after these daily until it is time to release them into the river.
In Windsor class we also have opportunities to sing in the school choir, learn to play musical instruments and partake in out-of-school activities such as a local Master Chef competition, a general knowledge quiz and of course school trips. We take on roles of responsibility as House and Sports captains and as members of the school council. We continue to develop as independent learners and thinkers. We make links across the curriculum and ground our learning in real life situations so that it makes sense to us and is relevant to the way we live now as well as preparing us for the future.
