6HH 2017 - 2018
Week ending 20th April 2018
We have enjoyed welcoming the children back to school for the Summer Term and the final full term at primary school for our Year 6 children. It has been a busy week and we have hit the ground running.
Congratulations to our three star of the week winners – Callum, Adam and Emma – who have shown perseverance and resilience in their learning. They are all keen to tackle tricky problems and are always looking for ways to improve their work.
Homework – Spellings are from the statutory word list and will be tested on Friday 27th April. Maths is pages 58-63 and is due in on the same day. Please can all children have a full outdoor PE kit in school all week.
English – we have begun our new text, ‘Wild Boy’. We have been discussing the setting and the introduction of some of the characters. The children have also completed their letter of complaint and have been encouraged to use subordinating conjunctions, relative clauses and a range of punctuation in their writing.
Maths – has been a hard thinking week. We have learnt about angles in triangles, angles on a straight line, angles in a circle, diameter, radius and have solved puzzles to find missing angles.
Science- we have begun our new topic looking at different types of forces.
Topic – the children have decided what they would like to learn about Crime and Punishment in the Victorian era and it looks like our learning is going to be following a pretty gory path!
PE - the children have made the most of the nice weather and have enjoyed cricket and running for speed outside this week.
Hello everyone! After graduating with a degree in ICT and Education 14 years ago (start guessing my age), I completed a PGCE at MMU and have been teaching ever since. My favourite subject to teach is Art and I quite like maths too, which is funny because it was my worst subject when I was at school. I love my job, not just for those "lightbulb moments" but for the fun and laughs we get to have every day! Mrs Hirst and I work like Batman and Robin, as in previous years, you can decide who is which one. When I am not teaching, I am looking after my two wonderful children who are 4 and 1, they certainly keep me on my toes! I love to go walking with our black lab, Oscar, travel and having fun with my family. I have thought of three interesting things to tell you about me which you might not know: 1. I have jumped out of an aeroplane! 2. I have heli-hiked on top of a glacier in New Zealand. 3. I am really interested in extreme weather.
