Welcome to Violet Class - Year 6!
We are the eldest in the school and endeavour to be fantastic role models by challenging ourselves to reach our potential and by helping others.
Miss Goodwin, Mrs Gostelow, Mrs Harness and Miss Reed are our adult dream team here to help us throughout our final year at Primary School!
In Year 6 we are aiming to become INDEPENDENT, MOTIVATED and CREATIVE learners.
This is a key year for us. As you can imagine, 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 times tables homework each week alongside our weekly spelling and our daily reading. Reading is so important and getting stuck into a good book not only increases our vocabulary and understanding but also is a great way to relax! Sometimes children may receive extra homework to consolidate learning from afternoon interventions.
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).
In Maths we are looking at shape, measurement and statistic. In English we are reading Friend or Foe, upon request of a Year 6 child. The children are really enjoying writing based on WWII even though the topic has finished. This half-term our topic Mayans which involves chocolate so I have a feeling they might enjoy this topic too!
Our Science links to R.E- creation vs evolution. We will be looking into the theory of evolution by Charles Darwin and how humans and animals have adapted over time.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for here, then Miss Goodwin’s door is always open and she would be happy to help. We are enjoying a fabulous final year, working together to achieve our full potential before we endeavour into the next phase in our lives at secondary school! #teamfriskney :)
