Welcome to Whitebeam's class page!
We are a Year 6 class with 25 children. Mrs Rust is our class teacher and we are extremely lucky to have three fantastic teaching assistants: Mrs Scot, Miss West and Mr Winsor. Take a look at some of our learning that we've done so far this year.
On the 15th and 16th November, Year 6 enjoyed two days of indoor rowing. During these days, they took part in individual races and team races; each competing to get the best time. When they weren't rowing, they had to complete a circuit of stretches and exercises where they demonstrated excellent team work skills by encouraging each other and supporting each other when they were stretching. They all had a fantastic two days and we think we have some future rowers in our year group!
We have been learning about light and completed an experiment to see how it travels. We found out through all of our experiments that light always travels in straight line and we can prove it!
This term we are studying 'Carrie's War', a book based in World War Two about two children who get evacuated to the countryside. We will be writing our own evacuee stories and write a newpaper report based on Plymouth in the Blitz.
