Welcome to Class 6's page! Here you will find any relevant information about what is going on in our class including homework and what we have been getting up to on our learning journey. This year we are lucky to have a large amount of adults working within Class 6 helping us prepare for our SATs later in the year. Literacy will occur first thing in the morning and be taught by Miss Blay with Mr Hunt and Miss George supporting this. Maths will be taught after break where we will be lucky enough to have two teaching groups for Maths, which will change throughout the year. This will involve one group being taught by Mr Wickham and the other by Miss Blay (with the support of Miss George and Mrs Reid).
Homework should be consolidating what we have been learning in class; hence it should not take too long to complete. If your child finds the homework difficult please do not hesitate to let me know or leave a comment in their planner so that we can focus on working on those skills some more at school. To start the year homework will consist of 3 pieces - a maths or literacy task accompanied by a SPaG sheet, spelling list and times table practice. Please find details of your child's homework on the website if you are unsure of what it is your child needs to complete. Homework should be handed in no later than Thursday and the spelling and times table test will be on a Thursday. Please also encourage your child to read and question your child on what they are reading to ensure they have a good understanding of what they are reading. Across both years 5 and 6 we are having a bit of a competition to see who can race around our Readopoly Board - completing a different reading challenge on each space. This aims to help encourage daily reading as well as the incentive to try reading books they would not necessarily normally pick straight away (including both fiction and non-fiction text types).
In Class 6 we will be using the Class Dojo points system where every child has their own icon and children will be awarded points for doing the right thing, good answers and working hard. As easily as points can be awarded, these can also be taken away. Each week the children will be given the opportunity to earn these points and then at the end of the week there will be a small prize for the boy and girl who has earnt the most amount of points.
During Term 1 we will be looking at the World War II and the Battle of Britain - this will be incorporating elements of Geography, History, Art and Design & Technology. Through this the children will be asked to explore a range of writing genres to provide them with as many writing opportunities to develop their skills across the curriculum.
During Term 1 our Science topic is Electricity. Through this the children will get the opportunity to look at the scientific symbols for electrical components, test different circuits and consider designing an electrical product (fault-finding, adjusting their initial plan and hopefully making a successful prototype).
For Term 1 our PE days are Monday and Tuesday (though this may change throughout the year). Children are expected to have their complete PE kits in school for these days and must be prepared to remove any earrings for the lessons. If your child can come in without these it will make the transition between lessons much smoother and quicker.
If you have any questions or queries, please feel free to ask us.
Miss Blay, Mr Hunt, Miss George and Mrs Reid.
