  • Welcome to Pentaloe Class!

    Welcome to the Autumn term in Year 6. 

    This is a very special year and a great opportunity for the children to show just how fantastic they all are. This is the chance for them to rise up as role models and be the very best they can be. I have high hopes and expectations of the class this year and I look forward to everyone rising to the challenge.

    Topic

    Our first topic is based around World War 2. We will look at the experiences of evacuees and learn about how life was during a time at war. We will be reading a range of texts linked to the war, starting with The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips and then moving onto The Diary of Anne Frank. Our science focus will be light and electricity and we will be looking at how light travels and how circuits work and can be adapted.

    SATS

    Year 6 obviously includes SATs, however Year 6 is not all about SATs and I will be working hard to make sure that while the children are well prepared, this will not be the sole focus of the year. I want the children to remember Year 6 as a fantastic final experience of Mordiford Primary School, not as the year they sat some tests in May.

    Reading

    The children will all have a new reading journal which is more focused on them taking responsibility for their reading and both logging and reflecting on the reading that they do. There will be challenges and questions that Mrs Fraser and I will write in their journals and the children will need to bring them into school every day.

    Roles

    The children will be applying for a range of roles and responsibilities this year (including House Captain, Reading Ambassador, Maths Ambassador etc) and they will all be ‘Buddied’ with a reception child. The link with the reception class is a great way to support the younger children as they take their first steps in primary school.

    PE and Swimming

    PE will be with Adriano on a Tuesday and me on a Thursday. We will be swimming later in the term but this will no longer be on a Monday, it will be a week-long intensive block where we will go swimming each day. More information and specific dates will be sent out presently.

    Bible Explore

    Mrs Sinclair will be running a block of six lessons starting on Thursday 19th September focusing on stories from the New Testament.

    Mrs Broadbridge will be taking the class on Tuesday mornings teaching the children RE and French.

    PGL

    We had a fantastic time at PGL and the children were a credit to themselves and the school. We spoke lots about respect and team work and these are characteristics I now look forward to seeing day in day out in the classroom.

    Many thanks for your continued support
