Mrs Jones and Mrs Clements will be teaching Year 6 this year. Mrs Jones is responsible for English, maths and science, while Mrs Clements will teach all the foundation subjects. Redwood Class' teaching assistants are Mrs Evans-Isaac and Miss Stenner.
Everything you need to know
The English focus for term 1 will be based around the book Pig Heart Boy by Malorie Blackman which links with our science topic Blood Heart. Writing will be both English and science based. Guided reading lessons will be based around the adapted stories by Shakespeare.
Maths in term 1 will focus on place value and the four operations (add, subtract, multiply, divide).
Things to remember…
PE lessons are on a Thursday and Friday but PE kits should be in all week just in case!
It has been proven that if children read at least 15 minutes everyday, they will have a significantly extended vocabulary to use when they are writing. Reading should be recorded in their reading records.
Don’t forget to logon and do 10 minutes of Times Tables Rockstars or Doodle Maths three times a week to support their quick recall of times tables and mental maths. Those children with Nessy accounts also benefit hugely by accessing it for 20 minutes each day.
Spellings are set and tested weekly.
