Year 6

I am Mrs Griffiths, the lucky teacher of Class 6 and I would like to welcome you to our class page! Here is where we will keep you updated on all of the exciting and fun things we have been getting up to during the week. Class 6 are enthusiastic about their learning and they are proud to present their work to you on our website.

 

Class 6 are also extremely lucky to have Miss Bedson who will be supporting us in the classroom with our learning this year. Miss Bedson will be with us for three days a week, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

 

Why not have a look at our 'Curriculum Page' too  and check out the interesting topics we will be learning about throughout the school year!

 

This year, PE lessons will take place on a Thursday afternoon and during the first half of the Autumn Term and second half of the Summer Term, we will be travelling to Everton Sports Park for our important Swimming lessons. Pupils are required to have the full, appropriate kits for these activities to ensure they can take part comfortably and safely.

 

As you know, reading is a huge focus in our school and it can have a fantastic impact on pupils' learning across the different curriculum areas. In class 6, reading records are kept by the children and should be signed by an adult at home at least twice a week. These records are checked by myself every Friday and a 'Reader of The Week' is selected and rewarded for their efforts!

 

In year 6, homework is of particular importance as pupils will be preparing to sit their end of Key Stage 2 SATs in May next year. The homework will be given out every Friday and is to be returned te following Monday. The purpose of homework is to review the pupils' work from the week but at times may revisit prior learning as a method of revision. Class 6 will also receive additional spelling lists to practise and these words can be located in their reading records where the year 5 and 6 curriculum spellings are listed. If you or your child are ever unsure on a piece of homework, please do not hesitate to speak to me.

 

I look forward to working with you this year!

Class Trial! Should the Prodigal Son be welcomed back?

Class 6 held a class trial to debate whether or not the Prodigal Son should be welcomed back at the farm by his father. The class were divided into 3 teams: the prosecution, the defence and the jury. Both the prosecution and defence teams put forward excellent arguments but it was later decided by the jury, that the Prodigal Son should be allowed home and would have his welcome feast with his father and friends. The verdict was announced by a nominated speaker - everyone had great fun taking on the roles of a courtroom!

The Beth Tweddle Gymnastics Company!

This afternoon, the children were involved in an assembly delivered by the wonderful Beth Tweddle gymnastics company. They talked about the benefits of gymnastics and how you shouldn't be afraid to try something new as you never know how good you are till you give it a try! They were able to win prizes by answering questions about Beth herself and watched an exciting video of her achievements.

Maths Ambassador Vote - demonstrating our British Values!

Today, the class out the democracy skills into action and voted for the Class 6 Maths Ambassadors! After listening to several excellent speeches made by the candidates, the children used their votes to decide who would be ideal for the job. We also took the opportunity to discuss the importance of having our opinions heard - we all have the right to a voice!
Last week, Classes 4, 5 & 6 visited the exciting Storybarn at Calderstones Park. Although the rain poured down, it did not stop us from having fun! We experienced hunting for different stories amongst the different trees with Redwood and Fernando Firtree, we listened to different versions of the traditional tale 'Hansel and Gretel', we put our drama skills to the test in a conscience alley,  we used our creative skills to interpret and design our own gingerbread houses from the story, before using ink to print in bright, primary colours. Finally we got the opportunity to explore and play around in the magnificent barn itself, full of exciting and mysterious objects and before we left, we all had the chance to have a turn in the thrilling Storybarn slide!  

Introducing our new topic in English ... The children loved exploring the trunk of items and images!
