Huntingtower CP AcademyWhere learning comes to life


Lions Class

Welcome to the Lions and the start of the spring term. We have made a superb start to the year and we are sure it will continue in 2018.  

Our project this term will be based around World War 2. Our title is ‘How does War change lives?’ The children will be learning about how war affected lives in Britain and in Germany. We will be using the text Rose Blanche to support our learning. Our Science topic is ‘Animals including Humans’; the children will learn about the circulatory system, keeping healthy and plan an investigation. We encourage children to continue their learning at home - if they choose to do some extra work, please send it into school! We offer merits as a reward!

Developing writing across the curriculum is a key part of Year 6, so we will be continue to take lots of opportunities to write in different styles. Reading is key to developing both reading and writing skills, so we would be grateful if you could encourage your child to read at home as regularly as possible. Your child is familiar with our online reading resource, Scholastic Reading Pro, and this is a great way for them to assess their comprehension of the text they are reading. If you require a new username or password, please speak to a member of staff. The following link will take you to the page you need:

Maths and English homework will be given out on a Friday. Both pieces of homework should be returned by Wednesday – your child can bring them in earlier if they wish. If you find your child is struggling with something, please encourage them to speak to an adult. Mrs Bensley is always happy to help!

We have a class twitter page @lionsclass. Please follow us and comment on our learning. We regularly update the page with things we have been learning about.

As always, if you have any questions about our learning or anything taking place in school, please contact a member of Lions.

Many thanks,

Mrs Bensley, Mrs Taylor-Summers
