Year 6

Welcome to
Class 6!
 
Our class teacher is Mrs Spry and our other adults in class are
Miss Battistini, Mrs Kelly, Mrs Percy and Mrs Shores.
Mr Gill and Mr Dyson too!
Writing - Our focus during the first part of the Summer term, will be to develop balanced arguments around our most effective escape plans!  The Y6 children will experience 'The Escape Room' and have exactly one hour to work together to achieve their escape! 
In addition to this, we will be developing our own perfect town which we would like to escape to! With scaled plans and detailed promotional material.  We are working to a deadline - when we unveil and name the town to our first visitors!
Maths - We will complete our Year 6 curriculum,  with angles and statistics; our final task this term will then be to revise all of the areas of maths!  We have four teaching weeks before our SATs, beginning on Monday 14th May, and the children will need to bring with them all of the knowledge and skills that they have been taught, not just in Year 6, but in their time at St Joseph's.
R.E. -  Teaching during the time of Easter, provides opportunities to explore the key events, with particular reference to the story of Thomas.  In addition, the Christian belief of eternal life is explored through the examination of Scripture and the Catholic funeral liturgy. 
 
Physical Education
 
Our PE days have changed and are now Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure that your child brings their kit to school in order to participate in this fun, important and compulsory area of school life.
Homework
 
  • Please hear your child read three times within a week, talking about the book as much as possible and discussing what is happening.  Please sign their reading record each time.
  • Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday then tested every following Monday.
  • Mathletics homework will be set each week.  The assignment will relate to an aspect of learning that your child will be familiar with, but would benefit from discussing their thinking process with you.
  • Each pupil will have a 'One Minute Maths Challenge' which they need to practice at home, in preparation for being tested at points throughout the term.
