Welcome to Year 6!
In Year 6 we have two classes - Russet and Sunrise Class.
In Russet class the teacher is Mr Harvey (covering Mrs Rathbone's maternity leave) and the teaching assistant is Mrs Simmonds.
In Sunrise class the teacher is Mrs Armstrong and the teaching assistants are Mrs Francak and Miss Parker.
On a Thursday morning Russet class are taught by Mrs Ingram and Sunrise are taught by Mrs McLeish
Both classes also share the teaching assistant Mrs Francak in the afternoon.
Term 4 will begin continuing to learn about algebra in maths and in English, we will look at different writing techniques to build suspense in our writing. We will also be working hard with every piece of writing to include all of the grammar and punctuation skills we have learned so far this year. In science, we will be finding our about Evolution and human inheritance. We will learn about the significance of Charles Darwin as part of this and his close links to our history topic of the Victorian era too. In art, we will look at the Victorian artist, William Morris and will begin to create our own art work in the same style.
With the Year 6 assessments about ten weeks away, we will also be revising key topics in maths and will be working on our skills and strategies to help us with our reading comprehension and our understanding of different grammar, punctuation and spellings.
There has been a change for PE days this term:
Sunrise Class- Outdoor PE on Monday, Indoor PE on Tuesday.
Russet Class - Outdoor PE on Monday, Indoor PE on Wednesday.
Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school at all times.
Thank you for your continued support.
