Welcome to Greenland
Greenland is an exciting place to be, it is part of the continent of North America! Like every Year Group at Clockhouse, we have a fun-filled, creative curriculum to excite and inspire the children of the year group. The adults work hard to ensure that we make the learning in Greenland exciting and memorable. The adults we get to work with are Miss Ward, Mrs Redgrave, Miss Brown, Mrs Jackson, Miss Munroe and Mr Cohen. We also have a number of other adults who help us learn, make progress and be the best that we can be.
Our exciting lessons are linked to the Clockhouse Curriculum and using our topics we also have the opportunity to develop and improve our Literacy and Numeracy skills. During Year 6 we will be learning through the exciting themes of Jack’s Time Machine, Where’s Jack? and Jack’s War. At the start of each new topic we have an entry point activity which helps us to get involved in the new theme and motivated to learn. At the end of each topic we have an Exit Point where we celebrate our learning throughout the topic. We often invite our parents in as this gives us the opportunity to share our learning in a fun and meaningful way. Alongside the Clockhouse Curriculum, we have sessions of Drama, PE, Cooking, Gardening, Messy Play, Mindfulness, Art Therapy and Lego Club.
During the Autumn term, we travel back in time to learn about Invaders and Settlers as part of our topic, “Step Back In Time”. During this topic we learn about the how the Romans, Vikings and Anglo-Saxons invaded Britain, the changes and beliefs they brought with them and how Britain changed because of this.
During the Spring term, we continue our learning journey but this time travel to Britain during World War Two as part of our topic “ Why is World War Two important? ”. During this topic we explore the events of World War Two, how these events affected the people of Britain and the importance of community during diversity.
During the Summer term, we learn about different geographical locations as part of our topic “We’re the kids in America” During this topic we specifically focus on 4 different biomes (looking at animals, plants and habitats) in North America and natural phenomena that affect human and physical geography.
During each topic some of the children will be set a home learning project which provides an opportunity to learn about the things that interest us and we want to find out about.
During the year we will have lots of other exciting events… keep checking the website and letters home for further information.
All this sensational learning means that we enjoy our time in Greenland and are ready and excited for the new challenges ahead of us
