Welcome to Year 6 / Badger Class!
Class Teacher - Miss Beckett
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Weedon
Hello and welcome to the Year 6 class page. We have already had a lovely start to the term with lots of smiley faces and enthusiasm to learn (and a few to many TikTok dances!.) This year is an important year as we start to thing about the transition to secondary school. I am very excited to be teaching the class for another year. Lets make it the best yet! If you ever have any questions please feel free to find me on the playground or email me.

Our big question for terms 1/2 is Why did Hitler invade Europe and how did it affect Britain? Already we are showing great enthusiasm about the topic of WW2. We will be exploring why the war started, what it was like to be an evacuee (look out for an evacuee day at school), making a dish using WW2 rations, making a poppy memorial in the playground and the Battle of Britain. What a busy two terms we have coming up!
This term our writing purpose is 'writing to inform.' We will be writing diary entries, a missing persons report and writing a formal letter. Our text we are focusing on is 'Letters From The Lighthouse by Emma Carroll.' Every day we do class guided reading using VIPERS and have a daily spelling lesson.
This term in Maths we will be re-capping on place value and understanding numbers up to ten thousand. After, will we spend a couple of weeks mastering long multiplication and division.
PE this term will be Hockey. PE kit is: plain white t-shirt, black or white shorts, plain tracksuit bottoms, plimsolls or trainers. When it is colder children can wear their school jumper/cardigan.
This term in science we will be studying the topic of light. We will explore how we see things, how light travels and how shadows are made.
