The classes will be taught by Ms Newman (Sycamore) and Ms O’Reilly (Maple) and Ms Harries (third teacher focusing on interventions). They will also be supported by the following adults: Ms Wynn, Tammy, Ibrahim and Ms Bowers.
This year the children will be consolidating their knowledge from the previous years alongside catching up with any missed learning with a key focus in developing their knowledge, understanding and independence ready for the end of year SATs tests and secondary school. Being the most mature children within the school, showing responsibility, resilience and excellence will grant them more responsibilities within the class as well as the prestigious Year 6 Hoodie.
We will be focusing on the topics of diversity and The Vikings in Autumn term, Climate Change and Global Citizenship in Spring term and how early Islamic civilizations lead the way in art and architecture in Summer term. We follow an integrated approach where writing and curriculum lessons are used together to drive the topic and immerse the children in engaging activities that span a range of curriculum areas.
Both classes have outdoor PE sessions on Monday. Please can the children have weather appropriate PE kit in routinely on this day – i.e. dark shorts, black or grey jogging bottoms, white T shirt and trainers or plimsolls. We work through a mixed curriculum of gymnastics, dance, team and invasion games, other ball games and athletics.
Each week, on Thursday, children are given grammar, numeracy and spelling homework on Google Classroom to be completed by the following Tuesday. Children are also expected to read for at least 25 minutes each evening and to record their views of the book in their homework diaries. Please encourage them to do this as it makes a huge impact on their learning!
If you have any queries or questions about this year please come and see us about it.
