Welcome to Class 6
In Class 6, we love to learn new things, help each other and try hard.
Miss Charlesworth and Mrs Procter are our teachers in Class 6. We have Class Dojo as a reward system as well as our Positive Pebbles which we receive for a number of positive reasons such as having a growth mindset and being kind. Once the jar of pebbles is full a whole class reward will be chosen.
Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit for these days and that earrings are removed. Unfortunately children will not be able to participate in PE lessons if they do not have the correct kit and footwear.
Our topic this half term will be exploring the wonderful author Roald Dahl and our class will be focusing on the text ‘James and the Giant Peach.’ We will be embracing the text with activities to stimulate our own writing, creating art work and through role play. Alongside this, we will be learning about the artist Picasso, creating portraits in his style. Within Maths, to begin the year we will be focusing on place value and number.
This week we talked about Autumn and how we know Autumn is coming. Together we came up with a list of things you may find during Autumn such as orange or brown leaves, squirrels collecting food for hibernation, fungi and migrating birds. We then went outside to see if we could spot any of these signs. We really enjoyed collecting the different items and we also found a lot of ladybirds.
Our new literacy topic
We began our new literacy topic on James and the Giant Peach today. We found an envelope full of green 'crocodile tongues' that had been left in our classroom along with a giant peach (see picture above). We then read a passage from the story and talked about how the main character, James, felt as well as coming up with some questions we might want to ask him.
