Welcome to Violet Class - Year 6!
We are the eldest in the school and endeavour to be fantastic role models, push ourselves and help others.
Mrs Carter-Hill and Mrs Gostelow are our adult dream team!
In Year 6 we are aiming to become INDEPENDENT, MOTIVATED and CREATIVE learners.
This is a key year for us as we have so much to try and accomplish. If we have the right attitude then we can do it! This year, we will work together as one big team to support one another and look out for each other. Of course, as well as some serious brain work we plan to have some fun along the way too!
We will receive two bits of homework a week during year six and it will support our learning that has taken place or is going to take place during the week.
We will have PE twice a week so we ask children to bring their PE kit in on a Monday and leave it here all week, taking it home on a Friday. Please make sure you have trainers, shorts, t-shirt, tracksuit, shin pads and spare socks (nobody wants soggy socks in school shoes after PE).
Reading is really important this year and getting stuck into a good book is SO IMPORTANT so we are encouraged to read whenever possible. Mrs Carter-Hill's favourite authors are: David Walliams, Roddy Doyle, Malorie Blackman, Roald Dahl and Michael Morpurgo.
This term we are learning about Fairtrade and how it impacts the world and countries that it works closely with. It will include us looking at sustainability of farms around the world and we will produce a meal using fairtrade produce. In Writer's Workshop we will be reading 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'.
