Turquoise Class

Welcome to Turquoise Class

 

Turquoise class are a hard-working, determined group of Year 6 children. Our teachers are Mrs Bullock and Mrs Handley. 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 focused 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"
Within this topic we will be looking at many different strands including battles to keep our environment clean. We will look at the ever important topic of climate change and also whether graffiti is art or vandalism. In the second half of term we will look at the effects World War 2 had on children in Britain.   

 

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 discursive writing, instructions, story and explanations.
 

Maths, 
In Maths we will be focusing on place value; addition, subtraction, multiplication and division; fractions and position and direction.

PE and Games
The children will be working on hockey skills this term and will be getting active throughout the day in forms of yoga, stretching, and cross country runs around the field. They will have opportunity to join in after school clubs.

Home learning!

Spellings will be given every week on a Friday for a test on Thursday.
Times tables should now be practised regularly through Times Table Rockstars.
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.

SEESAW - work for English and maths should be photographed or scanned and uploaded on to Seesaw.
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 - answer books have been sent home for you.

This may seem unnecessarily 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  -

Have fun learning together!
