Welcome to Lion Class
Our Teacher is Miss Luker
Wow! What a wonderful start we have had to the year. Year 6 is a big year for us and we are smashing it already!
Now that we are the oldest in the school, we are going to be the best role models that we can possibly be.
We follow our 3 Golden Rules:
1. Follow instructions straight away
2. Care for everyone and everything
3. Show respect and good manners at all times
We are also practicing Fantastic Walking when moving around the school
Congratulations to Noah, he is our 'Star of the Week!' for our first week back to school. He has been working extremely hard during every lesson and has been setting a fantastic example to the rest of the school with his behaviour, positive attitude and wonderful manners. Well done, Noah!
This half term, our Topic is 'Mysterious Materials'.
Students will be digging deep and divulging a better understanding about a range of materials and their uses and properties. We will be hosting and participating in a range of material based investigations and experiments!
Core Learning Skills!
Each half term, every class in the school follow a specific area of core learning skills - this half term, we are focusing on learning how to work together effectively. We will begin by running a range of lunch time clubs for the other children in the school to participate in. The planning, preparation and running of these clubs will take compromise, teamwork and good communication skills.
Lions were extremely excited to find out that this year we will have two PE lessons a week. Our main focus for this half term is basketball/netball skills. This will include: passing, catching, dribbling, shooting and working as a team. Our PE lessons are on a Thursday and a Friday afternoon.
As always, Lions will receive their new spellings on Monday and they will be tested on Friday. Each student will receive 10 spellings per week. In addition, students will practise their spellings each day during a Spelling Skittles session along with a separate spelling lesson.
Due to the fact that we are now in year 6, Lions will receive weekly homework throughout this year. This will include a piece of English and Maths homework every week. Miss Ellis will be running a weekly homework club for anyone who has struggled with their homework for that week or would purely prefer to do it at school during their lunch break.
Homework will be given to the children every Friday and is due back into school by Thursday at the latest. After all, we are only one year away from receiving daily homework at high school!
