Welcome to Class 6

 

PE is on Tuesday and Friday but please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school every day!

On National Poetry Day, we read 'The Magic Box' by Kit Wright and then wrote our own poems in the same style.

We are currently reading War Horse by Michael Morpurgo

 

We are kind!

S.T.O.P (Several Times, On Purpose)

At St George’s, we are all friends and we don’t tolerate bullying. We get along with each other and we are sportsmanlike, generous and caring.

 

 

Overcoming fear by Jan Edmunds

Sometimes we don’t feel very brave when we are all alone,

When faced with something very new, that leads to the unknown.

We may have fear of simple things like wind or rain or height,

Or fear, when we go to bed, the turning out of the light.

We need to stop and think awhile just why we feel this way,

Remember that the bravest ones can chase their fears away.

Sometimes something happens and then without a thought

We find the very courage to do things as we ought.

Bravery takes over and new confidence we find,

The problem then is overcome and fear goes from our mind.

We Are Maths Stars!

 

 

Sumdog can help us to improve our maths, spelling and reading.

We enjoy taking part in the regular Sumdog challenges - especially when we win!

Did you know that you earn double coins for the questions that you answer at home?

We try to use Times Tables Rock Stars as often as we can to help us to improve the speed and accuracy of our calculations.

We Are Eager To Learn!

In Year 6, we have maths and English homework every week.  This is usually related to what we have been learning in class during the week, but sometimes may be revision of a topic previously covered.  Homework is set on a Friday and is due the following Wednesday.

 

For anyone wanting to learn a little more, or to get ahead, the BBC website remains a good place to start.

 

 

We Are Bibliomaniacs!

 Our Reading Corner

In Year 6, we ask "Where will your reading take you?". 

We enjoy reading books from all around the world.  We enjoy exploring new worlds and different places through our reading.

 

Our luggage labels (hanging on the right hand side of the board) show how many pages we have pledged to read.

 

For every page that we read, we gain a mile towards our destination.

 

We can count reading at home and at school - in fact, anywhere that it is safe to hold our books!  We can read actual books, or on a device.


We Are Writers!

We can spell

Click HERE to see a list of the words we are learning to spell during the second half of the AUTUMN term.

 

We will also be making sure that we can spell all of the Year 3 & 4 Statutory Spellings and all of the Year 5 & 6 Statutory Spellings by the end of the year.

 

Here, you will find links to the SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) glossary.  By the end of Year 6, children need to know all of the terms in this glossary here.  Here is a year by year breakdown - useful if you have younger children in school too.  In Year 6, we learn the Year 6 terminology and revise all other year groups.
