Class 6

Hello and welcome to Class 6!
Our Class Teacher is Mrs Roberts.
Our wonderful Teaching Assistant, is Mrs Gallimore.
In our classroom, we have a positive attitude to learning and we always strive to be the best that we can be. As the oldest children in the school, we are responsible, motivated and mature in all that we do.
There are currently 21 children in Class 6 (which is comprised of year 6 pupils) We are lucky enough to have a brand new classroom, complete with our own set of laptops and an amazing outdoor learning space. This means that the children have lots of creative space to work in, and that they can be given opportunities to be independent in their own learning.
Our topic in term one, is 'Myths, Minotaurs and Mazes' We have been learning lots about the lives of the Ancient Greeks and the children have produced some outstanding topic homework during their summer holidays. We are so proud of their determination to achieve, and we can't wait to award prizes to those children. 
We cannot wait to see what the children come up with as we move into our next topic: 'Ole, Ole, Ole' This is a Geography based topic, focusing on many of the cultural traditions, famous landmarks, physical geography and different cuisines found in Spain.
Below, is a list of our topics this academic year... we cannot wait to get started!
Myths, Minotaurs and Mazes (Term 1)
Ole, Ole, Ole(Term 2)
'Take One Book' Stig of the Dump (Term 3)

Religious Education

In our RE lessons this term, the children discussed that they would like to have a special area of worship in our classroom. To help us, we discussed the question 'What makes a place special?'. The children came up with some fantastic ideas, and used their knowledge and understanding of different religions to design a very special place, for children and adults to visit, if they need to seek advice, voice their worries, or to be peaceful and pray. In addition to this, the children have been really enjoying studying Christianity this term. They are so engaged, and have produced some very thoughtful and insightful ideas during lessons.
