Archbishop Cranmer CofE Primary Academy Striving for life in all its fullness. John 10: 10

Mrs Rogers - Class 6

Contact Mrs Rogers

Welcome to Class 6

 

This page has useful information about the day to day running of Class 6 and about what we get up to in our busy, exciting classroom. 

 

Mrs Rogers works alongside Miss Wilkinson, our teaching partner. Miss Wilkinson will be working in class 6 on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon and will be working alongside Mrs Rogers daily 9-10am. 

 

Our Spring term topic is 'Who's Got The Power'. 

The children will look at the development of our democracy in our country over  a  millennium  from William the Conqueror and a society organised under feudal control, through the development of Parliament and the House of Commons under the reign of successive kings and queens. They will examine the increasing role of ordinary people through a chronological study of pivotal moments while playing, among other roles, the part of juror at the trial of Charles I and a detective examining the case of a suffragette. We will develop our UK map knowledge and broaden our map skills to examine and use different sorts of maps such as thematic maps of population of Britain in our study of democracy today.

 

 

Our class book this term is, 'The Great Sea Dragon Discovery' by Pippa Goodhart. We will write texts in a range of fiction, non-fiction and poetry genres. The life of Charles Darwin will provide the stimulus for a unit of biographical writing while a short film called Pandora will be the starting point for writing factual report texts. A large format picture book, ‘Moth-An evolution story’ will be the inspiration for creative writing in the form of a children’s story. The final unit of the term is a poetry unit based upon another short animated film called ’Little Freak.’

 

In Science, the children will be studying ‘Evolution and Inheritance’, the children will learn how the fossil record reveals that living things have changed over time and identify how animals and plants are adapted to suit their environment leading to evolution. In ‘Animals including humans’, they will identify the main parts of the human circulatory system, describe their functions and the ways in which nutrients and water are transported within animals.

 

 

Useful information:

  • Our PE lessons are on Monday afternoons. Please make sure your child arrives in school in their PE kits. You may wish to layer some warmer clothing for our outdoor sessions, particularly when the weather is colder.

  • Spellings will be tested every Friday. 10 new spellings will be sent home every Friday to be learned for the following Friday. Children should know how to spell the words and be able to use them in a sentence. This is very important and will also be tested. 

  • Times tables will be tested every Friday. Children will be given 6 minutes to complete the multiplication and division facts up to 12x. This forms part of a tracker as children work through awards. Each week they will focus on a different times table individualised to their learning up to 12x12. If children achieve all times tables up to 12, they will begin mixed. 

  • The Year 6 Reading Challenge challenges children to read at least 100 pages per week to an adult outside of school each week with a minimum of 3 times or more. Personal Organisers are collected in every Friday. If they have read at least 3 times a week, every week, all term, they will receive a special reward. 

  • Creative Homework may be assigned once every term. This will always be themed around our current learning topic. 

  • Outdoor Learning: A large part of our recovery curriculum this September will be spent learning outdoors, as we enjoy using the new recovery garden and large grounds we are fortunate to have as a school. Therefore please can you ensure that your child has a suitable waterproof coat every day in school. We would also appreciate it if you can provide your child with a named pair of wellington boots which they can leave in the outdoor shoe box. This will enable us to provide opportunities to take their learning outside. Children can also bring in indoor shoes to wear inside to keep our take-care school looking clean and tidy as well as enjoying some home comforts.

  • The cloakroom noticeboard is full of useful information including the week's spellings, timetables, dinner menus and up-to-date letters.

    How to compete the times table homework

    Remember to follow the grid horizontally. Basic multiplication is commutative which means the arrangement doesn't matter - show me this:
    5x 4= 20 so 4 x 5 = 20.
    We then move to the corresponding division facts. Start with the bigger number otherwise we won't end up with whole numbers as our answers! Division isn't commutative so we can't just swap the numbers.
    20 ÷ 5 = 4 therefore 20 ÷ 4 = 5.
