Lancelot Class – Year 6

Welcome to Lancelot Class

Welcome back to the Spring Term, the first of a new decade! We have had a fantastic Autumn Term and I am sure that the childen will continue to approach school with the same enthusiasm and positivity in their final two terms at Countess Gytha. It has been a real pleasure to get to know them.

Mrs Collins will continue to work alongside me in Lancelot class as we guide the students through a new topic and the journey towards the KS2 assessments. She also continues to offer them Spanish on a Wednesday afternoon.

Our topic this term is:

How does coal turn into gold?

Steam train

This topic will be history and geography based. It will consider how the industrial revolution transformed the landscape of Great Britain, with the creation of cities and development of factory society. We will learn how great riches were made, how 11 year old children were sent to work and how trains created the seaside holiday (amongst other things). Both the science and the social impact of the railways should make this an exciting and engaging topic.
