Welcome to the Hedgehogs class page. We are one of two Year 6 classes and there are currently 19 of us. Our teacher is Miss McKune and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs Bunce, who we share with the other Year 6 class.
Wednesday and Thursday 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 the whole book for the 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!
Some of us were lucky enough to go on the Year 6 residential trip to Caldecotte in Milton Keynes. We slept in the Yurts which was so much fun. We really challenged ourselves with activities such as canoeing, climbing and the spectacular 'Leap of Faith'. The weather was kind to us most of the time but there was some rain. We didn't care!
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 and we will also be looking at the life and career of Barack Obama by studying his biography. 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 natural disasters, how they occur and famous disasters through the years e.g. Pompeii in AD79. During October we will be looking at Black History Month with particular focus on Martin Luther King Jr and Oprah Winfrey.
Mocks Weeks will be:
Monday 7th October 2019 - Thursday 10th October 2019
Monday 18th November 2019 - Thursday 21st November 2019
More details of these mock tests will be available in due course.
