Class 11

WELCOME TO CLASS 11, YEAR SIX!

*Learning is engaging, inspiring, rewarding, challenging and fun!*

 

This is the home of learning in class 11

and we are ready to rock year six!  Welcome back!

 

We have some exciting learning opportunities waiting to welcome you back and to settle us all into our new routines. We work super hard on our core subjects, growing our knowledge and developing our skills, so get ready for learning that will make your head hurt (in a good way!). We also want to challenge you in year six in different ways, with enterprise events, team building tasks, creative arts and drama productions, competitive sports, time to talk and much more, so our class will soon be buzzing with life, just as it should be! We've also got the most exciting class novel to start - it's tense, surprising...but still makes me cry!

 

Myself and Mrs Atkinson can't wait to get to know you all properly and find out all about what makes you special - we love to hear about the exciting things you do out of school, as well as in! So let's smash year 6, together every step of the way!

Now take a look at our learning in class 11…enlightened

Our current class read…

Some really important -and current- issues are raised in our amazing book, ‘The Boy at the Back of the Class’, about the experiences faced by many refugees. Can you all remember the name of this fruit, bought to remind Ahmet of his homeland? 

 

I can see a rainbow! Ask us how!

Revising the continents…tough when they’re turned!

Learning about light

Well done class 11!

Talk for Writing!

Acting out a key conversation as Harriet Tubman plans her escape! Here we are using drama to help us develop our description and enrich our extended writing. 

Shadows and refraction as we understand light!

Putting our science investigations into action!

RISE to the reading challenge!

During our study of biographies, we’ve been inspired to discover the recent words of key figures in the battle against climate change, from world leaders to the environmental campaigners Greta Thunberg and Sir David Attenborough. 

Enterprising students get creative!

Look at our fantastic product names and logos as we create the perfect pitch for a new bubble bath, designed for a younger child. Team work and presentation skills are really put to the test here! #skillsforlife! 

Hot Potatoes in class 11!

It’s not playing, it’s revising! Just one of the ways we make our learning interactive and active in class 11- here we are revising different conjunction types in our GPS lesson. Do you know your co-ordinating from your subordinating conjunction? We do! 

Be the teacher!

Marking our own work to look for the successes (what went well) and different ways we can develop (even better if).

3D ‘body forms’ in clay - inspired by our work on Antony Gormley

3D body forms in wire- inspired by Antony Gormley

Exploring the human form

We have studied proportions to draw accurate representations of the the human form, ready to create our own designs for a 3D sculpture - wow work! 

PSHE in action - how do we communicate effectively?

Following our new PSHE scheme, SCARF, class 11 are exploring communication, negotiation and assertiveness, whilst trying to build a free standing bridge! Who will be victorious? 

A good book and a cold treat- we love reading whatever the weather!

Read for rewards from the Star Books Cafe!

READ FOR REWARDS! 
From our loyalty cards which earn a tick for each book completed to sweets for each Accelerated Reader test taken, we are rewarding you every step of the way for reading! Check out our class recommendations and ‘cup of clarification’, where we explain the tricky vocabulary we come across. Well done to these amazing pupils who completed our summer reading challenge to tackle a genre a week! And here it is… our first class novel. It’s a real page turner, with danger and drama in the heart of the Amazon. But will it make me cry? Going on previous reads…yes! Don’t laugh, class 11! 

Get ahead of the game- who will be our featured artist?

Your brain box challenge is to think about the art surrounding us in our local area. Where is it? What do you think or feel about it? What local artists can you name? Impress me, class 11! 

Keeping our learning interactive!

Here’s our ‘hot potato’ in action! Just a fun way all child have the opportunity to share their ideas and answers, so we are all involved and active.

Mission Possible is underway- team work challenges to welcome us all back!
