Kingfisher Class is taught by Mrs Smith, supported by Mrs Baigent and Miss Robertson.
In Year 6, we work hard, but we also have lots of fun!
PE is every Monday and Tuesday and we will try to be outside, so the children need to be prepared! Normal school PE kit with a warm top/tracksuit bottoms (navy) would be advisable.
Homework in Year 6 will consist of spellings, reading, maths questions (linked to current learning), and mathletics, all of which are ongoing activities.
In addition, the homework grid below contains extra activities, which can be completed throughout each half term.The children will have a chance to show their progress with this every Friday.
This Autumn Term, we travel back to one of the most fascinating periods in British History, as we cover various aspects of the Victorian era. We will start Year 6 by learning about Queen Victoria, before finding out about the Industrial Revolution, researching amazing Victorian Inventions, as well as finding out about Victorian school life, home life and workhouses.
