Welcome to Tawny Class



Miss Holland: Class teacher

Mrs Harris: Teaching assistant



                A Child's War


A siren sounds, a building crumbles, a spitfire zooms overhead. Take Cover! It's 1939 and Britain is at war. Deep down in the Anderson shelter, learn why nations are fighting and why child evacuees must make the long journey from their homes and families into unknown territory.


We will read A Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo to help us to understand what it was like for those left in England, and try to empathise with their hopes and fears.


And, as peace is declared, let's get ready to celebrate. Mr Churchill says 'It's an unconditional surrender!'

Our Local Environment


Term four:



From the bustling cities to the wilderness, the magnificent island of Australia has lots for Tawny class to explore and discover. If you take a hike into the wilderness you might be lucky enough to spot a snoozing koala or kangaroo. I wonder what delights you might encounter. 




Term three:


                                                  Frozen Kingdom  


Welcome Tawny class to the planet's coldest lands... vast wilds, hostile territories, incredibly beautiful yet often deadly. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.


Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and eco-systems and find out about a great explorer, Ernest Shackleton.






Term two:


                      Darwin's Delights


Ship Ahoy! Tawny class went on an exciting expedition with Charles Darwin and his crew on HMS Beagle.
We traced his route across the vast ocean. We stopped at the magical Galápagos Islands to see the amazing species that helped Darwin develop his theory of evolution by natural selection. 
Term one:


Ancient Egyptians



We travelled back 5000 years in time to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. We cruised along the River Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings.







Our Value this term is Truthfulness. Proverbs 12:22 'The Lord detests lying lips, but he delights in people who are trustworthy.' Enquiring minds, caring hearts, creatibe hands
