Year 6 Oak and Ash Classes 2021

Welcome to Year 6 Oak and Ash Classes 2021.

We are taught by Mrs Jenny Parker and Mr James Sidebottom. Miss Joanne Crossland, Mrs Kirsty Taylor and Miss Kerry Parkin also help to teach us. During lunch time, Mrs Sandra Warburton and Miss Michelle Patrick assist us.

Our Topic this Term

In the Frozen Kingdoms project, we will learn about the regions of the Arctic and Antarctic. We will learn about the similarities and differences between these two regions, including the climate, landscape and natural resources. We learn how to use grid references, lines of latitude and longitude, contour lines and symbols to identify the geographical locations of the Arctic and Antarctic, and how these, along with the tilt of the Earth, affect day length and warmth. We will investigate polar oceans to learn how they differ from other oceans on Earth and how climate change increases Earth's temperature and leads to rising sea levels. We will learn about the indigenous people of the Arctic, including how their lives have changed over time, and about the positives and negatives of tourism in Antarctica. Finally, we will also learn about classifying animals, animal adaptations and evolution, and polar exploration and discovery.

Our Class Novel

Synopsis

Feodora and her mother live in the snowbound woods of Russia, in a house full of food and fireplaces. Ten minutes away, in a ruined chapel, lives a pack of wolves. Feodora's mother is a wolf wilder, and Feo is a wolf wilder in training. A wolf wilder is the opposite of an animal tamer: it is a person who teaches tamed animals to fend for themselves, and to fight and to run, and to be wary of humans. When the murderous hostility of the Russian Army threatens her very existence, Feo is left with no option but to go on the run. What follows is a story of revolution and adventure, about standing up for the things you love and fighting back. And, of course, wolves.
