Hawk Owls

Teacher - Mr Adam Downs

Hi, I am the teacher of Year 6 Hawk Owls Class and I’m really looking forward to the coming school year.
I love teaching here and finding fun ways to do all kinds of different things!  Often I get taught just as much as I teach!  My favourite subjects are PE/Games, History and Geography too, but really, I like all the subjects.
I do all sorts of different things when I’m not teaching, I like to spend time with family and friends, play and watch football, I like to do lots of travelling and cooking!  I even used to work as a Chef in Australia!

My favourite books are East of Eden, The Grapes of Wrath and anything Potter!  I have lots of films that I really like including the Batman trilogy, Jurassic Park and I will NEVER miss Cool Runnings if it’s on TV.  My favourite sport is football and I support the best team in the world, which is obviously Tottenham Hotspur.

Hello. I am Mrs Jane Patrick, I have been a teaching assistant here at Winterton Junior School since 2001. Currently I am working in Year 6 supporting Mr Downs, but I have worked across all the year groups over the years.

Teaching Assistant - Miss Emily Rogers

Hi! I'm Miss Rogers and I have the pleasure of working with Mr Downs in Hawk Owls (Year 6). I have been working at Winterton Junior School since February 2014. I spend a lot of my spare time with my family, friends and my three dogs (Sky, Star and Autumn). When I'm not spending time with them, I enjoy listening to music, watching films and watching Manchester United play football (even if I do get a little over excited when I watch them), I have also just started my first year at university. My favourite subjects have to be, Maths, Art and R.E, but all subjects at Winterton Junior School are great!!

Topic Of The Term!

This year is a really important year for Year Six, and we will be working really hard, and learning a lot!

Our Autumn Term Topic is The Mayans. During this time we will:

* Find out where the Mayans lived.

* Compare the physical geography of Mesoamerica and the UK.

* Find out about the way of life of modern Mayans.

* Explore where and when the remains of the Mayan civilisation were discovered.

* Find out about how the Mayans civilisation developed over time.

* Find out about the city states of the Mayans and how society was organised.

* Find out about Mayan religion and beliefs.

* Find out about everyday life for the Mayan people.

* Explore Mayan writing and calendars.

* Find out about the decline of the Mayan civilisation.

* Recreate a Mayan mask.

* Use clay to recreate Mayan art and artefacts.

* Explore and recreate the Bonampak murals.

* Design, make and evaluate a model of a Mayan temple.

We recently came back from our annual trip to Robinwood. Every child was an exceptional example of good behaviour and manners. I’m sure you’ll agree that they have gained a lot from the experience, and we can already see them working much better together! From the Giant Swing to Trapeze, our children challenged themselves and achieved more than we could have imagined. Well done Year Six!
