Distance Learning: Letter for Parents/Carers

Distance Learning: Letter for Parents/Carers 1
Year 6 have had a great week to finish off January. We had a special assembly led by the NSPCC to launch our school fund-raising event, which will begin on the 3rd February. We have also been visited by the artist Roland Burt, who led a special art session with us, where we learnt that everyone is an artist and you can use many tools to create art.

Today we had a very special visitor in school - Book Man! He is our school superhero and he set us a reading challenge to complete over the Christmas break. The 12 days of Christmas Reading Challenge. We look forward to seeing him around school in the New Year.

Well done to Lucy - the winner of our Class End of Unit Quiz on the Titanic. What a fantastic prize to win too!

Year 6 had a fantastic treat this week, travelling to London and to the National Maritime Museum. We took part in a workshop called 'Titanic: Frozen in Time'. This included learning Morse Code, looking at artifacts found on the Titanic and having high tea with John Jacob Astor, the richest man who travelled on board the ship. We had a brilliant time and it was great to share some of our own learning with historians at the museum.

Dissection of a sheep eye! Today, Year 6 dissected a sheep's eye as part of our Science unit. The sheep's eye consisted of the retina, pupil, iris, lens, blood vessels and optic nerves! To dissect the eye we used tweezers and scissors (to cut into the eye), gloves (to protect our hands) and plastic containers (to keep the eye in)! Tigers thoroughly enjoyed dissecting the eye! Here are some of the pictures we took!

Today, we were lucky enough to have a Modern Slavery Workshop. We learnt lots about modern slavery through the use of drama and role play nd the warning signs to look out for.

Year 6's Titanic topic kicked off with a bang with Friday's WOW day...

 

Year 6 immersed themselves in the age of the Titanic during our WOW day, researching real passengers and crew members who boarded the famous ship and finding out their fates. This research introduced the children to a world of fascinating facts, which has only served to increase curiosity surrounding this topic and our History lessons ahead. We spent the next part of the day finding out what life would have been like for our passengers based on the class system on board the ship before joining together to hot seat and teach one another about first, second and third class. This incredible day ended with a year group circle time, an opportunity to share with everyone some brilliant facts from the day and, as was the case with facts shared by some children, facts learnt through independent research.

 

Check out some of our photos below!

 

               

 

               

 

Welcome to Tigers Class Page!

 

 

The Tigers class is taught by Miss Wren. 

 

PE will be on Monday. Please ensure that PE kits are in school every week as this is an important part of our school curriculum and we encourage all children to take part. Appropriate PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black or blue shorts or jogging bottoms and suitable footwear such as trainers or plimsolls.

 

Home Learning Books are due in every Tuesday and will be marked ready for you to complete the next tasks on Thursday. 

 

Individual Reading Diaries will not be given to children in Years 5 and 6 this year. Instead, there will be a class reading diary with individual pages for each child to track the books they have read when they have finished them. This is to encourage more independence and maturity when approaching reading. Raffle tickets and prizes will still be in place for UKS2 and Miss Reed will be in charge of this! 

 

All children will still have access to Times Table Rockstars and we hope you will join us in encouraging your child to access this at home as much as possible. 

 

 

Autumn 1

 

I am looking forward to an action-packed first half term with my new class!  We have some fantastic new learning opportunities lined up, kick-started by a brand new History topic- The Titanic! Our learning in class will be accompanied by a trip to the Greenwich Maritime Museum in October to spend the day as a Titanic passenger. More information to come! 

In English, we will be immersing ourselves in the classic novel 'Skellig' by David Almond. This is a rather mysterious text with an interesting twist on a previously well-known supernatural being... stay tuned to find out more!

In Math, we will be studying number and place value, ensuring that we are secure with numbers to ten million. This will then be followed by revision of the four operations. Please come and speak to us if you have any questions about concepts or methods taught in class if you wish to support your child at home. 

 

Letters will be sent home regarding both the Titanic trip to London and PGL, our annual Year 6 residential during the first full week back. Any queries at all, please speak to one of the Year 6 teachers. 

 

Please keep checking out our class page for important updates and snapshots of our learning! :)
