What Makes Us Who We Are?
Welcome to Y6 -Oak class.
The class teacher is Mrs.Haywood and Mrs. Webb is the teaching assistant. Our aim is to provide an happy, engaging and challenging environment, where pupils can learn together in order to reach their full potential. We encourage children to support each other through collaborative learning and supportive feedback.
This term's topic is ' Evolution and Inheritance and Living Things and Their Habitats'; we will be learning how scientists have pieced together evidence from fossils over time, to discover how animals have evolved over millions of years. We will be studying how scientists believe that humans have evolved and looking into the controversial theories related to this. Children will also learn how animals and plants have adapted in order to survive and why organisms are often endangered, and can become extinct through natural or human factors.
