Hawthorn Class

Hawthorn Class is a class of 17 Year 4 children, taught by Mr McDonald and supported by Mrs Russell.

This Term

Hawthorn Class will be learning about the Romans. During this topic we shall travel back over 2,000 years to discover the spread of an empire, the conquering of lands and how cities were transformed with fascinating mechanisms and building. We shall write a story based around the book ‘Escape from Pompeii’ by Christina Balit. Our RE focus is the Harvest and later the class will explore the symbolism of light during the Christmas period. PE days are Wednesday for swimming and Thursday for gymnastics – please be mindful to take out jewellery and children be in named PE kit.
