Class 12

WELCOME TO CLASS 12 

"Education is not the learning of facts, but the training of the mind to think." 

- Albert Einstein

In Year Six, we...

listen and make positive contributions to class discussions

try our best and persevere even when we find things challenging

take care of one another and work as a team

take responsibility for our learning

ask questions when thinking critically about what we are learning

enjoy reading for pleasure

strive to achieve our personal targets and goals

 

Our classroom is a happy and inviting place where we want our children to feel free to make mistakes in order to help them learn. We strongly believe that a classroom with laughter and smiles is a classroom that learns best and we promote a positive attitude in everything that we do. We want the children to enjoy their final year at Burton Road Primary School and give them memories and experiences that they will treasure forever. We hope that you enjoy seeing all of the fabulous things we have done so far. Thank you for visiting our class page.

Miss Densley and Mrs Saxton

 

 

Literacy lesson on semi-colons

Class 12 worked together this morning to write sentences including semi-colons. They came up with great ideas and vocabulary that are all based around our topic of The Tudors.

Our recommended read for this topic is Treason by Berlie Doherty.

The book is fictional, although there are many true historical facts about King Henry VIII and what life was like as part of his Court. 

We are preparing to write a descriptive piece about Westminster Palace and the man himself - King Henry VIII!

Creating a timeline of art periods proved tricky today!

We tried to order the pieces of art and match them to their art period name that we thought they were from. We saw lots of different styles of art and analysed how art has changed over the years. We compared this art to that of Banksy, who we are studying. 

We now know many different art periods and when they took place. 

To learn, read and write numbers up to 10 million. 

We played a memory matching game to help us practise saying numbers including millions!

What makes art 'art'?

To begin our topic on Banksy, we thought about what makes art 'art'. We discussed everything that might be important to an artist and what might motivate them to create their art. We then organised the nine different discussion points into a diamond with the most important at the top and the least important at the bottom. We used our listening and conversational skills to debate why we had chosen that place within the diamond and moved those that presented a better argument.
