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 Read 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 two bits of homework a week during year six alongside our weekly spelling and our daily reading. It will support the learning that has taken place or is going to take place during the week. 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!
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 fractions, decimals and percentages. In English we reading Goodnight Mister Tom to link with our topic this term which is WWII so far we have written diary entries and letters from the perspective of an evacuee. The children are very interested and knowledgeable about this topic!
As mentioned our topic for this term is WWII- Rations, Raids and Relocating. We have learnt about WWI, the start of WWII, evacuation and the blitz. We will be looking at rationing and what life was like on the front line.
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 can’t wait for 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 :)
