Teacher: Miss R Hickton

Teaching Assistants: Mrs W Fiddes

Welcome to 6H, where we enjoy spending time enjoying our learning and having fun at the same time. Our class are always eager to learn, and they are always excited to try something new – no matter how hard it might be. Miss Hickton, who is our class teacher, loves to sing songs to us and tries her best to make learning as exciting as possible. Our lovely teaching assistant, Mrs Fiddes, is always caring and on hand in class to help us with our learning.

As a class, we always strive to be the best that we can be. We always set a good example for other children in the school: we are always smart and respectful. Also, we all understand the importance of being good friends to everyone. During lessons, we love to share our ideas with each other, and we often have quality discussions where we are able to listen well to everyone’s ideas. Everyone in our class loves science experiments and doing things that are hands on – we have enjoyed sewing, and learning about forces by doing different experiments. All of the children enjoy our engaging music lessons, and we enjoy learning new poems to perform.”

What We Are Learning

In the run up to SATs we will be working hard to ensure that we have covered all of the learning that we will need to be successful in our SATs. We are covering lots of new and exciting things in maths like pie charts, circles and algebra. In English, we are developing our understanding of the complex language by learning about subjunctive form and progressive and perfect tenses. We will also be continuing to read Goodnight Mr Tom as we are thoroughly enjoying the story; it is so full of new language for us to learn about. We are also continuing to read using Bug Club, both at home and in school, so that we can refine our reading skills. Also, we will be working on developing our writing: we want to be exceptional writers with our own sense of style.

Helping Us at Home

Homework is something that we feel is really important in 6H – we always enjoy sharing our learning from home with others in our class. It is always lovely to see how people at home have helped our children with their homework; either by helping them to learn their spellings or with the pages from our CGP Maths and English books.

Reading is another love within our class, and we are all extremely excited to be starting our new reading scheme – Bug Club. We love taking part in reading challenges, and we enjoy listening to our class novel. We hope you will enjoy reading with your child using this new scheme as much as we will in class.
