Welcome to Year 6’s Class Page!
Hello! I am Miss Byers, the teacher to a fantastic class of year six children.
Welcome to our class page where you can keep updated on our learning experiences each week. You can also explore our ‘Curriculum Page’ to discover more about the exciting topics we will be learning throughout this academic year!
In year six, we thrive in new learning opportunities that deepen our knowledge and understanding of the world around us; develop essential skills for life and nurture our individual core values. Our ambition is to always try our best and reach our highest potential!
Physical Education lessons take place every Wednesday afternoon. During Autumn term 2, the children will be taking part in progressing their skills in gymnastics. Therefore, please ensure your child has a full PE kit each Monday so they are prepared for the physical activities during the week.
Reading is an essential aspect to learning and we recognise its significant impact to children’s progress across the entire curriculum. We have recently added wonderful books of all genres to our school library and the children are able to bring these home to inspire their love of reading for pleasure. We would encourage you to regularly set aside time to listen to your child reading and sign their Reading Record book afterwards which will be checked. It is important that your child has a book bag so they are able to take home their Reading Record booklet and Reading book. Book bags can be purchased from the main office.
Homework is handed out each Friday for children to practise skills from lessons taught during the week. Your guidance and support at home is wholeheartedly welcomed as it can have such a positive impact to your child’s learning. Each child also has an individual login to access the ‘Mathletics’ and ‘IDL’ spelling program so please avail of this for further practise at home. The year six spelling list can be found towards the back of your child’s Reading Record booklet. Homework is to be completed and returned the following Monday as it allows us to identify areas of learning that need further support and challenge.
If you would like to speak to me regarding homework or other concerns, please do not hesitate to book an appointment to speak with me.
Year 6 got the opportunity to question a physicist from the University of Liverpool before exploring and creating their own character in the field of Physics within small groups. Using the green screen, each group took part in writing and recording their own script to show the research, developments and discoveries made by Physicists today!
Today, we had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing Christmas carols on the steps of St.George’s Hall alongside Year 4 and 5. Members of the public and parents came out to watch our performance and we certainly enjoyed the experience!
Year six was visited by Phil from the Crime Investigaton Team! The children were taught about the different roles within the Police and Criminal Justice System, learning about stop searches and DNA and being immersed in hands-experiences including investigating a crime scene! The Workshop has developed the children’s communication and teamwork skills aswell as inspired a few budding scientists!
Today, we had an exciting trip to Croxteth Animal Farm where we created land use maps of the park and engaged in classification activities to find out the different rare breeds kept on the farm. We had opportunities to find out more about living things and their habitats as well as discover how animals are adapted to suit specific environments. The children thoroughly enjoyed meeting the variety of animals and getting involved with filling nets with hay for the donkeys & horses, bottle feeding calves and getting up close to a family of meerkats!
