Welcome to the class page of Carbon Class!
Did you know:
‘Carbon is often referred to as the building block of life..’
‘Carbon plays a huge role in the world we live in’
These two quotes perfectly sum up our aims in Year 6:
- to develop a strong foundation for high school
- lead by example - taking on positions of responsibility with confidence and enthusiasm.
In Carbon class there are 28 magnificent children. Our class teacher is Mrs Skinner and we are also helped by the wonderful Mrs Shanahan, and Mrs Carlton-Paterson. Together we make a great team- working hard to achieve our best.
As well as focussing on our studies we are learning to become independent, self motivated and curious about the world in which we live. By showing care, courtesy and consideration to others we make sure that everybody feels valued.
On Wednesday the 13th November, Years 5 and 6 children were transformed into city evacuees! We arrived at Gressenhall and were told we’d have to stay there and help out, as there was a bomb on the railway line preventing us from reaching our destination in the country.
The children met some characters from the war and took part in activities. We met a man from the Home Guard and learnt how to defend against an ‘axis invasion’. We also met two ladies that showed us how to make chocolate truffles during rationing time (mash potato was the secret ingredient). Then we were treated to a visit to the horses and piglets on the farm and we experienced life in an Anderson shelter. It was a great day and all the children were enthusiastic and got really involved.
