Hawthorn Class

Hawthorn Class is a class of 16 Year 4 children, taught by Mr McDonald and supported by Mrs Russell.

This Term

Hawthorn Class will be learning about the Volcanos. During this topic we shall focus on the physical geography based around volcanos such as climate zones, volcanoes features and earthquake causes and effect. The class will also be exploding with excitement when they get the opportunity to create their own volcano! In RE we will be learning about Jesus’s incarnation, gospel and salvation through the miracles and after half term the focus will be Easter. PE days are Wednesday for swimming and Thursday for invasion games – please be mindful to take out jewellery and children wear an active uniform (PE kit) on those days.
