Welcome to the Hedgehogs class page. We are one of two Year 6 classes and there are currently 20 of us. Our teacher is Miss McKune and our Teaching Assistant is Miss Clarke. Mr Atkinson teaches our PE and Computing lessons for us every week.
Monday and Wednesdays will be our PE days, so please help us to remember our PE kit on those days.
Homework will be given out for English, Spelling, Maths and Arithmetic every Friday. It is due back into school on a Wednesday. Homework club is on a Tuesday if we need extra help. We also must gain at least 5 'reads' a week in our reading record. A 'read' counts as a chapter of larger books or 5 pages of smaller ones. Our Reading Records will be checked every Monday.
Here in Hedgehogs we are fully committed to achieving our very best this year. We have SATs coming up, but we're committed to all our learning experiences - not only the ones we do tests in. Check back here for regular updates of our achievements!
We have lots planned for this term! Our class text for English will be Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J K Rowling. In Maths we will mainly be looking at number and securing our use of the 4 operations, place value. fractions, decimals and percentages.
Our Science topics this term will focus mainly on Animal Classification, food webs and chains and how the organs in the body function healthily.
For Creative Curriculum we will be looking at how different crimes and punishments developed in the UK over the years and how some criminals were later sent to Australia, rather than punished here. We will explore the geography of Australia in more detail, creating aboriginal art, and for RE will look at the nature of Justice. We will be asking ourselves what is fair punishment in a range of situations now.
To compliment this we will be going on a trip to London to the Clink Museum - Britain's oldest known prison. This is provisionally booked for Wednesday 3rd October 2018. More details to follow soon.
