Year 6 Staff
Our class teacher is Miss James, our teaching assistant is Miss Johnston and our class governor is Mr Yates
The spring term so far has been very busy. We are getting ourselves ready for the important weeks to come, and the children are working very hard.
We have welcomed Mrs Walker back after maternity leave. Year 6 spent the day with her, using all their knowledge about pitch, melody rhythm and chords, they put it together to compose music.
The children have had two separate art afternoons with Miss Carey, where they have prepared then used items to print with.
We had the pleasure of spending the morning with a Saxon visitor that came in to school. she brought many artifacts and taught us all about the life of the Anglo Saxon people.
We have recently visited Northumbria University, where the children learnt all about further education. They completed an apprentice day, learning all about the amazing opportunities that the university have to offer.
This half term year 6 will have their session on a Friday afternoon, they are expected to come to school in the correct PE uniform.
You can find our more about our learning by visiting the Curriculum section of our website.
Year 6 RE, at times can be complex and hard work for the class. They always try their best and produce thoughtful pieces of work. This half topic our focus has been sources. we have learnt all about the bible and why it is so special. The children brought in special books of their own and shared them with the class. Miss James shared hers also, her great grandfathers WW1 Bible, that actually saved his life.
Spellings and times tables are sent out each Monday and tested in class on a Friday morning. The children are expected to spend time learning these. In year 6, I ask the children to read independently on a daily basis and complete their own reading record, these will be checked every Monday. As year 6 is a transition year into secondary school, they are expected to complete homework on time and return it to school when requested. Consequences will be given for those who do not read, learn spellings or complete homework on time.
We will be adding further information in the Spring Term 2020
