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!
