Welcome to Class 12 - Year 6

Welcome to our Web page.

Our Class Team:

Class Teacher - Mrs Burgess

Classroom Support - Miss Rostron

Class 12 are an extremely hardworking, well-mannered group of children, always striving to be the best they can be.

We hope you enjoy looking through our class page. It will be updated with photographs and news regularly, and you will find all the curriculum information you need on here.

HOMEWORK: Children should read, practise their spelling using the handwriting sheet and learn their tables every night. Handwriting and Tables Sheets should be handed in on a Friday. Literacy and Maths homework is set on a Friday and should be completed by Tuesday.

READING AWARDS: 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 12 to win the trophy and read lots at home.

PE – PE for this half term will take place on Thursdays (indoor PE kit required) and Fridays (outdoor kit required) 

Swimming - lessons are taking place on Tuesday afternoons.

MUSIC – Class 12 are currently learning to play the flute. They are making great progress and are sounding wonderful. Their lesson takes place straight after lunch on a Wednesday; therefore your child will need to have their Flutes in school every Wednesday, to allow them to participate fully. Our Composer of the term is Ludovico Einaudi

AUTHOR OF THE TERM Our new Author of the Term is Malorie Blackman. We are thoroughly enjoying reading her story 'A.N.T.I.D.O.T.E' in class.

This Term in School...

Our theme this term is 'How might we storm a castle?'

In Science we are learning all about forces and have discussed the difference between weight and mass, looked at how to measure the effect of gravity and how forces can be balanced and unbalanced.

English - we have written non-chronological reports on castle defences and are now enjoying reading suspense stories and identifying the features used by authors to create tension and suspense..

In P.E. we have been developing our skills in invasion games and have been improving our skills in football.

We have started our Confirmation classes with Reverend Neil and are enjoying these informative sessions at our Church.

In R.E. we have been looking at the Bible and had an interesting and divisive class discussion on whether God was male, female or other. The children had to use quotes from the Bible to support their ideas.

Meet the Teacher

A big 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!


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 letters for year 5 and 6 are attached below.

Reading Plus Online

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 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.
