Hello and welcome to the page for Classes 14 and 15
The teachers in Year 6 are Mrs Cassidy (Class 14) and Miss Richardson (Class 15). Our Teaching Assistant, Mrs Clarke supports both classes.
Here is some key information about Year 6:
- Our P.E. days are Monday and Friday. We need to make sure we bring our full P.E kits into school on Monday and leave them in school throughout the week. There may be unscheduled P.E activities that take place at different times during the week and we need our P.E kits ready so we do not miss out. Anyone with ears pierced will either need to take their earrings out for the lesson or cover these with plasters/micropore tape.
- Please send your child with a water bottle each day which is filled with water and ideally labelled.
During this half-term, we have been learning about number and place value in maths. We have investigated numbers to ten million, compared, ordered and rounded numbers, explored negative numbers and recapped and developed our understanding of the four operations.
In English, we have read the text A Place Called Perfect by Helena Duggan and wrote a setting description using expanded noun phrases and prepositions. We published our final piece and have presented our writing in the Year 6 corridor. We have also written a recount building suspense and tension and we have used dialogue to advance the action.
Year 6 have really enjoyed learning about the history of The Shang Dynasty, creating Willow Tree patterned plates in art and learning all about evolution and inheritance in Science.
Next half-term, we will be learning all about fractions. We will find equivalent fractions, simplify them and turn them from improper fractions to mixed numbers and back again. We will also compare and order them and use them with the four operations.
In English, we will be reading The Firework Maker’s Daughter by Philip Pullman.
As always, if you have any questions, please send us a message via Seesaw or come and see us.
Mrs Cassidy and Miss Richardson
