Welcome to the fabulous Frida Kahlo class!
This year we have named our classes based on inspirational people from around the world and from throughout history. We are a Year 6 class and children are encouraged to reach for the stars, aim high and strive to be the best they can. I will be teaching the class for the majority of the week and on a Tuesday the class have the pleasure of Mrs Clift teaching them. Throughout the week we are supported by the great Mrs Gilpin (Mondays-Thursdays) , the wonderful Mrs Waugh (Fridays) and the super Mrs Capstack (Thursdays-Fridays). During two half-terms we have specific conferencing time that will be covered by Miss Drage, as I work 1:1 with all children on their own personal targets and development, specifically linked to 'catch-up curriculum' due to COVID-19 impact.
Our three topics this year are:
- Autumn - World War Two
- Spring - South America
- Summer- Ancient Egypt
I love to hear from you all, so please feel free to contact me whenever you need to and I will always help however I can. Use the email address below:
Looking forward to an interesting and exciting year together!
Year 6 Reading Stimulus
This term we are using ‘Letters from the Lighthouse’ by Emma Carroll as the stimulus for our English. This book is set in the period of World War Two. Olive's sister went missing in London and then her mum evacuated Oliver and her little brother Cliff to Devon. ... Letters from the Lighthouse starts when Olive's sister Sukie goes missing. This fits in with our History topic on World War Two.
Due to restrictions with COVID-19, we are trying to keep home learning as virtual and contained as possible. We will be sending spelling lists home, which do not need to come back into school. Any other work that we do send home, we will not expect to come back into school again to limit contact between home and school. So, below you will find some very helpful documents.
1. Spelling lists for Year 2, 3/4 and 5/6. Children need to know and work on these spellings dependent on their ability.
2. Times tables: I have attached a document that has all times tables that children in our Year 5/6 need to know and practise.
3. Reading - I have attached some reading guidance on types of questions and conversations that would be really helpful for you to do with your child at home. The more they read, the better they are at reading!
