Year 6 - Rabbits
Welcome to Year 6 Rabbits
My name is Miss Clarke and I teach in year 6. I am really looking forward to this year as I haven’t taught in year 6 before. In our class we also have Miss Benson who is our teaching assistant; she is very kind and helpful.
Our current topic is ‘Super Sleuth’ and this will be our topic for Autumn 2. Within our topic we are going to learn about animal classification, the Vikings and the Normans. We will also recap the Anglo- Saxons.
In English we are going to be working towards writing our own detective story and explanations.
I am really looking forward to this topic!
Here are some of my book recommendations for our topic:
- The London eye mysteries written by Siobhan Dowd
- Foul play written by Tom Palmer
- Famous Five written by Enid Blyton
Our PE day is Monday and children are expected to have their kit in school. The PE kit should comprise of a white top (different to their school top), black shorts/skorts or leggings and trainers.
PE kit can be kept in school for a half term and this is recommended. If you don’t have your PE kit in school you will have to wear spare kit (and it isn’t very pleasant).
We are very lucky this year as Mr Samuel will be teaching ICT to our class every Monday afternoon. You will have the chance to learn how to code.
It is important to read for at least 10 minutes each night. You will earn stamps for reading and will earn bronze, silver and gold in reading. This will be celebrated in a special assembly.
In UKS2 home learning generally takes the form of a home learning challenge. You will be given a variety of tasks to complete and a suitable time period to complete it.
It is also important that if children are not secure in their timestable knowledge that this is part of their home learning.
