Welcome to Year 6 - St Paul's Class
Welcome to St Paul's Class.
The Year 6 class is taught by Mr Ritchie.
Mr Ritchie is the Senior Teacher for KS2 and also leads Maths at St Peter's.
The class is supported by Ms Whitley who is a Higher Level Teaching Assistant (HLTA).
Our Spring topic is Reach for the Sky!
During this topic, the children will learn about mountains and explorers. We will be reading (and watching the film) Touching the Void to inspire our writing.
Below is a link to our topic web for the Spring Term. This details what Year 6 will be learning about in other areas of the curriculum too.
Our Indoor P.E. lesson is Monday afternoon.
Our Outdoor Games lesson is Thursday afternoon.
Please could the children have both their indoor and outdoor kits with them on P.E. days? If the weather is bad on Thursdays, we will have our P.E. session in the hall.
Homework is given out on Friday and is due in on Wednesday.
The children will need their reading books in school every day.
The children are encouraged to bring a water bottle into school every day.
In Year 6 the children will usually be set weekly homework. This will consist of one piece of English/Topic homework, one piece of maths, spellings and a mental maths task. Homework will be stuck into your child's homework exercise book and will come home on Fridays.
Sometimes the homework may involve completing an online task such as using the schools MyMaths website. Occasionally, the children may be asked to complete a longer project.
As part of their homework, the children are also expected to be regularly learning times tables and reading their school reading book at home. By the end of Year 4 children are expected to know their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12!
