Turquoise Class

Welcome to Turquoise Class

 

Turquoise class are a hard-working, determined group of Year 6 children. Our teachers are Mrs. Bullock, Miss Thomas and Mrs Shelley. In Turquoise class we enjoy a creative curriculum that is planned around our interests. We have a lot to achieve this term and we will need a focussed approach to our learning. Year 6 is a year of exciting opportunities, additional responsibilities and privileges as well as plenty of hard - work.
We appreciate all of the support that is given in this final year from parents - Team-work makes the Dream-work!

Learning Journey
The Learning Journey approach means that all aspects of the curriculum combine to build a really creative curriculum. This term our Learning Journey is 'Battles' There will be many aspects to this topic including: art - the battle to keep our streets and environments clean; looking at a variety of wars including World War 1 and 2, with a focus on Remembrance and the American Civil war; we will also take some time to look at Pirates and their impact on the world as well as using our battle skills and DT baking skills to hold a Great British Bake-off.

Call of the Wild
The much anticipated trip of the year will be held the week commencing September 25th. The children will have a wonderful time during this week developing their team building skills, resilience, independence and friendships. it is also a wonderful opportunity for the staff to get to know your child and how they learn better.
 
English 
Our English curriculum is linked with our Learning Journey. We will focus on a variety of text types during the term. This will include writing newspaper reports, discursive texts and poetry.
 

Maths, 
In Maths we will be refining our ability to carry out the four operations, apply our knowledge to problem solving and have a real focus on immediate fact recall for times tables.

Science
In Science we will be looking at how our bodies work. We will look at the circulatory system and hope to carry out investigations on how exercise not only helps us to stay fit in body but also in mind.

PE and Games
The children will be working on their gymnastics techniques this term alongside tag rugby on a Friday with Mr Bandfield. The children also have the opportunity to take part in hockey club on a Monday lunchtime. If your child would like to take part in this they will need a moulded gum shield and a pair of shin pads as we play with hard sticks and balls.

Home learning!

Spellings will be given every week on a Friday for a test on Thursday.
Times tables for the week will be tested on a Friday.
Maths home learning will be set on a Friday, ready to be handed in on Wednesday. 
English homework will be set on a Wednesday to be completed by Monday.
Children are expected to read every night and will also be set reading homework on a Monday with comprehension questions. This should be handed in on a Wednesday marked by a parent or guardian to show it has been supported.

This may seem unnecessary complicated but it does help prepare the children for how homework is set at secondary school. Homework for the week is summarised on our class page. However, homework should also be recorded in the children's homework diaries.

Please make sure your child is reading on a daily basis.   
In year 6 we still hope that children are 'heard' read at least 2/3 times a week at other times they may be reading independently. 
Please sign their homework diary to record this is being done. Homework diaries will be checked weekly- please help your child to make sure they are in school everyday.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you need to discuss anything  -

cbullock@ashperton.hereford.sch.uk

If you feel you are able to offer some of your valuable time to listen to readers in school, offer a club or help in any other way, please contact me. 
Have fun learning together!

 

 

 

CALL OF THE WILD 2017

Friday 29.9.17

We came...we saw...we conquered!

We came...We saw.. We conquered!

Thursday 28.9.17

Today we have been caving conquering our fears if small spaces and the dark. We have also been on a beautiful waterfall walk. Tonight we've danced the night away at the disco. No one could believe such sparkly outfits were stored under all those wet stinky clothes in their suitcase.

 

Wednesday 27.9.17

Sorry for the late update - just having too much fun! Children have had the most amazing day today on the lake. They have kayaking. been canoeing, building rafts and generally getting very wet and very wild! Sun was out this morning but it disappeared for a bit this afternoon. It didn't matter though we were wet anyway! We have been orienteering this evening, finding clues around the farm by torchlight. Everyone is tired but spirits are still high. No emergency sweet parcels have arrived today after yesterday's subtle website SOS!

 

Tuesday 26.9.17

What an action packed day! Again we have enjoyed a dry fine day. The children have participated in climbing and gorge walking today. They have made us so proud with their efforts and determination. This evening we have a visitor to talk about sheep farming and then we shall enjoy a campfire. Think all the sweets have disappeared so not sure there will be a midnight feast tonight! And yes it was midnight!

 

Monday 25.9.17

 

We have arrived safely. The children have enjoyed an afternoon of team building: working together, listening and co-operating in glorious sunshine. They have hung from the trees and gone crazy on the assault course. They are now enjoying spaghetti bolognaise before our hike up Cribath to meet the sleeping giant. Torches at the ready!
