Welcome to Class 11 - Year 6

Welcome to Class 11’s Page

Our Class Team:

Class Teachers - Mrs Haury & Mrs Rowlinson

Classroom Support - Mrs Johnstone

Class 11 strive to best the ‘best class in the school’ with their hard-working attitude and exemplary behaviour which sets the standard for the younger children in the school.

We hope you enjoy looking through our class page.  We will keep updating it with photographs and news, and you will find all the curriculum information you need on here. 

HOMEWORK Maths and English homework is set on Fridays and should be returned the following Tuesday.

Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their times tables every night.  Handwriting sheets should be handed in on Fridays.

In addition to this weekly homework, in the run up to Year 6 SATs, additional homework may be set.

P.E. P.E usually takes place twice a week on Mondays and Fridays so P.E kits must be in school on these days. Due to Confirmation classes taking place on Mondays, that P.E. lesson is currently devoted to the Daily Mile

READING AWARDS: Class 11 are champions - we won the Upper Juniors Reading Awards trophy this term. Thank you to those at home who have helped through hearing your children read.

Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help class 11 to win the trophy by reading at home.

MUSIC LESSONS Class 11 are currently learning to play the flute. Lessons take place on Wednesday afternoons, and so flutes need to be in school for this. Our Composer of the term is Ludovico Einaudi

Author of the Term Our new Author of the Term is Gill Lewis.

Y5-6 Electricity KO Winter 19(2)Y5-6 Evolution KO Winter 19(2)

This Term in School...

In Science we will be looking at electricity, evolution and fossils.

We're reading 'Into the Forest' by Anthony Browne in English and have written an emotional email to Dad and a short note to persuade the Boy to follow his mother's instructions and take the long way, or to take the short cut through the forest.

In maths we have been finding the perimeter and area of composite rectilinear shapes.

We have two very interesting trips to look forward to this term - Fiddler's Ferry where we will learn all about how electricity is generated and Safety Central where we will find out how to keeo safe in several aspects of life.

Christmas Play.

A huge well done to all children who performed in the Christmas plays. You were superb. A special 'thank you' to the children (and therefore adults at home) who were able to come to all performances and gave the audiences their best.

Birchwood High School Performance

Years 5 and 6 enjoyed a morning trip to Birchwood High School to watch their performance of Beauty and the Beast. The high school students did a superb job and had our classes enraptured with their act. Our pupils made notes on the performance to enable them to write a review next week.

PE in Class 11

Our first half term of school saw us developing our Football skills in PE. We loved improving our ability to pass, shoot and tackle as well as developing our teamwork skills.

Here we are, hard at work.

Science

In our Science lessons we have  gotten well underway with our Forces unit. We started this unit by looking at the difference between weight and mass and investigating the link between weight and mass of objects on Earth. We are also looking at air resistance, friction and levers, pulleys and gears this term.

Meet the Teacher - Thank You!

A huge thank you to all parents who attended 'Meet the Teacher'. For those of you who couldn't attend, or would just like a recap of the information shared with you, the powerpoint from the afternoon is attached.

Thanks again!

Spellings

In addition to weekly spellings it is important for your child to practise the common exception words for their year group. We distribute these over each half term. Letters have been sent home with the spellings for this half term. A copy of the letter for Year 6 is attached below.

Reading Plus

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Mathletics.

Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.
