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 Autumn term topic is 'War and Peace'. 

Children will learn when and why World War II began and find out about the key individuals and countries involved. In addition to this, they will discover all about evacuation; learn what it was like to live with food rationing and explore the contribution made by women to the war effort. Furthermore, they will learn important facts about the Holocaust and investigate events that were key turning points in the war, such as the Battle of Britain and the German invasion of Russia. Throughout the topic and term, children will understand the importance of the Democracy, Rule of Law, Respect and Tolerance, Individual Liberty by exploring our British Values.

 

Our class book this term is, ‘Friend or Foe' by Michael Morpurgo. It will aid with our writing units of persuasion and diary entry and compliment our topic perfectly. Using our reading comprehension skills, we will take part in book-based debates to respond to the text. 

 

In Science, the children will be investigating Electricity and Light.

 

 

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.
