We hope you enjoy visiting our webpage which shares with you the exciting learning that takes place in our Y5/Y6 classroom. This year is a significant year for our children and their learning opportunities. We encourage them to take part in all aspects of learning, including homework, and for Y6 in particular, in order for them to maximise their full potential during their transition to high school. Please follow us on Twitter @Class5_StDavids for daily updates and reminders.  


Our Topic Is:




Oak Class are learning about MAAFA (the Swahili word for "great disaster" or "great tragedy"). This project teaches children about Africa past and present and the development of the slave trade. It also explores Britain’s role in the transatlantic slave trade, the causes and consequences of the European colonisation of Africa and the worldwide communities that make up the African diaspora.  We are excited to take on board this amazing project and will keep you posted with our progress on twitter.
