Welcome to Class 6

 

Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen - Conan O'Brien.  Work hard, be kind and amazing things will happen - Conan O'Brien.

Class Vision 2020-2021

 We are polite and treat each other well.  We are honest and try to help other people no matter what the situation.  We are responsible for our own belongings and behaviour.  We try our best.  We respect each other and other people’s opinions.  We want to have a great year with lots of fun so we will behave well.  We are kind and treat others as we would like to be treated. We try hard to achieve our goals.  We are united as one and work together for the best results possible.

 We are more than friends: we are a class family.

English

Our class story:

You can't blend in when you were born to stand out.

 

 

The English teacher in Wonder introduces the class to precepts:

“Precepts are rules about really important things”.

 “Like a motto. Like a famous quote. Like a line from a fortune cookie.  Any saying or ground rule that can motivate you.  Basically, a precept is anything that helps guide us when making decisions about really important things”

We have lots of precepts displayed around our classroom...let us know the precepts you try to live by.

Young Voices PE Keeping in touch

23rd June, 2021

Please check your Class Dojo messages for a password which will allow you to access the parents' zone on this website.

Here you will find a 'Music Room' with dance and lyric videos so that you can practise at home! Enjoy.

Thursday - indoor

Friday - outdoor

 

Why not try one of Joe Wicks' "5 Minute Move" programmes, if you fancy a little extra exercise?

 

 

How do we keep in touch?

School Jotter app - we use this app solely for messages for the whole school.  It is updated by Mrs Millar, the headteacher.

Class Dojo - I use this to send messages to all year 6 parents and to reward the class.  I also use the "Story" on Class Dojo when I want to send pictures of what we have done, but only with the class.  Dojo enables us to have 1:1 conversations, parent to teacher.

School webpage - here you will find links to lots of useful resources.  As this page can be seen beyond the school, I only update the page with general examples of work.

Letters - I try not to send paper copies home, but where I have too, you will usually be able to find a replacement copy on the webpage (see below!).
