Welcome to Vultures Class
Mrs Hunter, Mr Ridgway, Mrs Pillar
Our Autumn Term quest is 'Heroes and Villains.' Throughout the quest we will be thinking about what makes a true hero and what makes a true villain. In our quest we will be looking forward to some BIG BANG moments including our trip to Engage Water Sports, becoming personal heroes in our first aid courses and the opportunity to explore what real-life heroes experienced during a trench experience.
Below is a curriculum overview of the exciting learning Vultures will be doing during our Heroes and Villain's quest.
During the Autumn Term our class texts will include:
Private Peaceful - Michael Morpurgo
Cloud Busting - Malorie Blackman
We have class copies but you are welcome to purchase copies for your child. Please make sure all personal copies are named!
Our Class Charter
During transition day Mr Ridgway asked the children to select five adjectives from a Wordle that they would like to describe their time in Year 6. We then collated these adjectives to form our charter:
Year 6 pupils receive homework on a Tuesday and a Friday each week. The homework and the due date will be recorded in their planners.
Homework given out on a Tuesday is handed in on a Friday.
Homework given out on a Friday is handed in on a Tuesday.
Pupils will also receive spellings on a Monday. These spellings will correspond to a spelling objective that is being taught in class that week. This spelling objective will then be tested the following Monday.
PE is on Mondays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school on these days.
