Welcome to our class page
Welcome to the class page for 6D.
Here you will find information on the children's learning, photos celebrating this learning and other project related activities that they participate in.
The second of our exciting projects for this academic year is entitled 'Frozen Kingdom'. In this project children will take a closer look at the extreme environments of the Arctic and Antarctic, the people and animals that live in these locations and the famous explorers who have succeeded in reaching the poles. The children will also look at the famous Titanic and its doomed journey to America.
The project will start with a Memorable Experience on Wednesday 31st October, to which you are invited to join in the activities across the day.
Links at the bottom of the page will take you to their projects and these will be regularly updated.
Year 6 is a very important year for the children: not only are they the eldest children in school and take on additional school responsibilities but they have also have the end of year assessment tests for moving onto secondary education. To help your child with the pressures that they will face this year please encourage their independence and self-organisational skills.
The class will have the second of their project related homework to complete over the half term (details can be found by clicking on the project page link at the bottom).
The children will also be expected to complete maths and English homework weekly, which is linked to their current learning. It is important that this homework be completed independently so that any misconceptions can be addressed when the homework is reviewed and additional support given to help their class work. Please however discuss your child's homework with them because this helps to embed learning and understanding further. This will come in the form of 2 CGP booklets, which the children will write in, and an accompanying maths resource book. In addition the children will have weekly spelling patterns and words to learn. They will practise these daily in class before being tested each week.
The children will have 2 P.E. sessions each week. One will be with myself and the second with JB Sports. It is vitally important that the children participate fully in these sessions and have a full P.E. kit in school from Monday to Friday, incase of swapped sessions to allow for memorable experiences or WOW events. 6D will have a few more swimming sessions on Tuesday afternoons then they will revert back to P.E. within the weekly timetable.
Finally, if you would like to contact me for any reason or have ideas that will help the children's learning please send a message via the email link below, leave a message at the office or catch me at the end of the school day.
Thank you for your support
