Welcome to Class 6

Teacher: Mrs Grealis

 

Our Learning

The Way, the Truth and the Life

Justice

Through the topic of Justice, the children will understand the meaning of justice and be aware that we are all called to work for justice. They will know about people who have been persecuted for speaking out about injustice and reflect on the cost of commitment. The children will know about people who work for justice and reflect on what we can learn about them. They will understand that we are all called to help one another and reflect on how people with disabilities can help us before reflecting on Advent and how we can prepare for it.

 

English

Can we save the tiger

Our text this half term is Can we save the tiger?, an information text focusing on the many creatures which are endangered due to human ignorance. Using our text, the children will look at hybrid texts and write an independent version of a report based on an amazing animal. Their report will include explanation, information and persuasive paragraphs in which the children will demonstrate their use of modal verbs, adverbs of possibility, use of parenthesis and expanded noun phrases.

Into the Jungle

‘Into the Jungle’ by Katherine Rundell will be our main class text for this half term, with which we will develop our retrieval and inference skills.

Letters from the Lighthouse, by Emma Carroll, will continie to be our class 'Reading for Pleasure' text.

 

We actively encourage all children to read as much as possible as home. Please help to support our class learning by encouraging your child to read a range of genres reguarly at home. Most children will have a reading book that is provided by school and is part of the school reading scheme. Books should be read each day at home and changed in school once finished. We encourage parents to record their child's reading using School Spider each week so that home reading can be monitored. Everybody is encouraged to have a 'Reading for Pleasure' book that they keep in the tray in school.

Spelling tests will be held weekly (on Mondays). It is important that all children are practising their spelling patterns throughout the week to ensure that they go into their long term memory and can recall the spelling patterns to apply into their daily writing confidently.

 

Topic

WW1

Our topic this half term is 'War Over Time' where we will be focussing on World War I.

 

PE

Our P.E. day is usually a Friday (although this may sometimes change) and children should come to school in their kit on this day. Dance will be our focus this half term. School hoodies and jogging bottoms can be purchased online with school uniform.

 

Homework

Google Classroom

Homework will be set on Google Classroom. Work will be set on a Thursday and should be submitted by the following Monday.

 

Useful websites to support home learning: 

We encourage all pupils to access these websites on a weekly (and sometimes daily) basis. If you have difficulty accessing the internet or these websites at home, please let me know and I will arrange a time for your child to access the school's computing suite.

 

Communication 

Messages will mainly be sent using School Spider; please turn on notifications for the app so that you are alerted to new messages/emails. I am always happy to discuss any worries, concerns or general queries you may have. Please feel free to send an email or make an appointment through the school office. Matters of a personal/sensitive nature may be sent directly to deputy@stlukes.cheshire.sch.uk .
