Welcome to Class 6B!
Teacher: Mr Bell
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hollins
Step into our classroom and you will find a wonderful group of courteous, respectful and hard-working children who will always provide you with a warm welcome. Our lessons are always full of challenges that we strive to overcome through a positive attitude, teamwork and lots of laughs. Our class teacher is Mr Bell and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hollins for a second year, something which we are delighted about. They – along with Mr Copestake and Mrs Sawyer – provide us with great support and a lot of fun.
Being at the top of the academy, we have greater responsibility and are determined to show this in everything we do; we have high expectations and goals and are dedicated to setting a great example of being an Eaton Park person to fellow pupils, staff and visitors.
What We Are Learning
Over the course of this year, we will encounter many interesting and fun-filled activities to develop our understanding across the curriculum. Our writing our the course of the Autumn term will be centred around the texts of ‘Fox’ and ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ – the latter of which will also link into our first topic of World War Two. As we come towards Christmas, we will also be focusing on the topic of ‘What’s Happening Now’; here we will be investigating about the world around us and the four corners of the globe as well as looking into detail about different natural disasters that can affect the planet.
As with every year, Year 6 sees the children complete their end of Key Stage Two SATs tests. These will take place in May and will assess the children’s knowledge, understanding of concepts taught both in Year 6 and previously in Key Stage Two. Over the course of a week, each child will sit a Reading test, a Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar (SPaG) test and Mathematics tests.
Helping Us at Home
Homework will be sent home each Monday, with it needing to be returned on a Friday. This will include many important things, such as vital practice of spellings and mental maths (which will include lots of work on times tables). We also have the fantastic Bug Club reading programme, which children are encouraged to read on at least once a week at home alongside their reading book.
As the year progresses, children will be given regular tasks to complete at home in preparation for their SATs tests.
