Welcome to Class 18!
In Class 18, we are Year 6 children, who always aim to be the best that they can be!
In Class we all believe that there is magic inside of all of us and if we believe it, we can follow our dreams.
Take a look at the fun, exciting and creative things that the children have been doing in class!
A little side note by Mr Meares… My door is always open so please don’t hesitate to pop in and see me. I can be contacted via the main school office, before or after the school day or using our year group email.
Any questions please email: THPYear6@NCLT.ac.uk
Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure you have your PE kit in school with you (indoor and outdoor kit).
Homework is set weekly on a Friday and is due in the following Friday. This will alternate between English and maths (set once a fortnight by your child’s maths teacher). Spellings are sent home weekly.
Every Friday spellings are collected, tested and a new set will be sent home. You will find these in our school planners. It is very important that spellings are practised and transferred into writing.
In Class 18, we are all working hard to achieve our Reading Reward. To do this, we need to read at home as much as possible to get lots of Starbucks Reading tokens. To help your child earn their reading tokens, record this when you read with them at home. Please ensure that they read at least 3 times a week but remember…the more the better! Reading will be checked every Friday but school planners should be in school every day.
What we’ve been learning
Crime and Punishment – Autumn Term
We will be focussing on the theme of Crime and Punishment from the Tudors to the 21st Century. This will start with an enquiry question based on Crime & Punishment and the following lessons will allow children to find further information in order to answer the enquiry question.
Their Call of Duty … Their Finest Hour… Spring Term
This term we will be learning all about World War 2 and the impact that it has had on society today. As part of our topic, the children will be learning about life during war time and imagining themselves as an evacuee, about rationing and why this was implemented and understanding the Blitz (to name just a few things!). We will also be looking at some more mature topics such as the holocaust which will allow the children to work on their discussion and empathy skills.
There will be lots of cross-curricular work taking place, particularly linked to English and Mathematics.
When The Sky Falls – Spring Term
An extraordinary story with historical and family truth at its heart, that tells us as much about the present as the past. Deeply felt, movingly written, a remarkable achievement’ Michael Morpurgo
1941. War is raging. And one angry boy has been sent to the city, where bombers rule the skies. There, Joseph will live with Mrs F, a gruff woman with no fondness for children. Her only loves are the rundown zoo she owns and its mighty silverback gorilla, Adonis. As the weeks pass, bonds deepen and secrets are revealed, but if the bombers set Adonis rampaging free, will either of them be able to end the life of the one thing they truly love?
Useful Resources and Games
We are always aiming to strengthen the skills we learn at school and there is no where better to do it than at home. Dive into some of the links below and let the children show you just how amazing they are!
