Welcome to Year 6
Class Teacher: Mrs M Hume
Since starting back in January, Year 6 have got a new teacher called Mrs Hume. She will be joining the class until summer. The class have been working hard on fractions. Looking at adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing fractions. They have been looking at equivalent fractions and comparing them. The children have worked hard on this work and have enjoyed learning together in partners.
SWAT Exchange Day
On the third week back in school, the children had their final SWAT exchange day. Some children stayed here at Whittlefield whilst others went to Padiham Green and Reedely. The children took part in a variety of activities based around community. Each child took some work with them which they exchanged with someone they had never met. The children really enjoyed the day and got to learn about all the different communities that we live in. We took the visitors to our school on a tour around the reading bus.
It’s the start of another year and we have all settled into the new routines really well. There are a lot of exciting topics to look forward to this term, including “I Will Survive”. We will be writing a descriptive piece based on “Kensuke’s Kingdom” by Michael Morpurgo, persuading people to visit our Imaginary Island, programming and E Safety in ICT, studying evolution, inheritance and adaption in Science. We will be exploring different techniques in Art, using different mediums.
We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Whitehough camp and created lots of wonderful memories. We challenged ourselves and learnt how to improve our communication and team building skills.
Don’t forget our P.E. days are Monday and Wednesday – please ensure you come in PE kit.
Homework (including spellings) will be given out on Wednesday and collected in on the following Tuesday.
Please continue to support your child’s learning and help them to remember to regularly read at home. We hope you will come back and look at our photographs to see what other fun things we will be doing over the upcoming year.
We have been involved in the designing of our new library bus and are very much looking forwards to using it next half term.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Whitehough camp school and made some fantastic memories. We put our orienteering and den building skills into practice as well as facing our fears on the Jacobs ladder and the high ropes.
