Welcome to Year 6
Class teacher: Miss Turner
Hello, my name is Miss Turner and I am the Year 6 teacher of Sapphire class this year. We work along side the other Year 6 class in Topaz and are very lucky to have Mr Harrison and Mrs Powell in our year group too! Scroll through our page to see what we have been getting up to so far this year.
During the first half term, the children really been enjoyed our first topic: WW2! Both Sapphire and Topaz class visited Eden Camp where the children learnt lots of new information about WW2 by walking through all of the different huts in order of the WW2 events timeline. Check out the photos below to see what we got up to...
During Autumn 2, the children arrived at school dressed as evacuees. They were soon taken to the hall to be evacuated out of Dunsville and to their new homes. Once they arrived, they experienced the life of an evacuee through different activities: rationing baking, propaganda posters, sewing ('Make do and mend') and first aid. In the afternoon, they experienced a black out and what an air raid would have been like and what people, during the WW2, would have had to do if they heard the siren!
When I am older..
Please find below important information. The long term plan will inform you about what your child will be covering over the year and the Autumn forecast will give you more information about what we are leaning about in the Autumn term. The home learning document will tell you about the homework children are expected to do throughout the term. May we thank all parents for their continued support with this - the work is looking fantastic! Don't forget spellings are given out on a Monday and expected to be learnt by the following Monday and children can access Times Table Rockstars daily at home via the internet which is important to ensure they develop their times table knowledge.
Children are expected to complete 6 pieces of home learning by Friday 14th December.
Spellings are sent home every Monday and tested the following Monday.
Maths homework is sent home every Monday and to be handed in the same Friday.
