Welcome to Lion Class
Our Teacher is Miss Luker
This half term has been incredibly testing and high impact. We have worked incredibly hard but we have now officially finished our SATs! This week it is sports week and we are really enjoying investigating different types and themes for sport. We have been participating in golf, hockey, dance competitions, swimming and running a circuits session with the rest of the school. We are very excited for sports day on Friday!
Over the course of this academic year we have made substantial progress and improvements and have enjoyed being able to participate in many different themed school days and other activities. This has included Science days, History days, netball and football clubs and competitions, book fair, Great Exhibition, bikeability and many more. We also have World Book Day approaching where we are all going to come to school dressed as a character from different books and we are going to do work all day based around a particular Lion book - because we are Lion class.
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 Sasha, she is our 'Star of the Week!' for our first week back to school this half term. She has shown huge improvement with her handwriting and her presentation in all of her work. Well done, Sasha!
This half term, our Topic is 'The Highwayman' and we are focusing on the Creative Arts.
Students will be recognising the importance of the creative arts and using a picture to be able to tell a story in many different ways. We will also be incorporating drama, music and dance into our lessons.
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 a little more about ourselves and others 'Knowing me, knowing you'.
We are continuing our two lessons a week in PE this term. Our main focus for this half term is Dance. This will include the 5 main aspects of creating a dance: travels, jumps, turns, gestures and stillness. Our PE lessons are on a Tuesday 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 and our big tests are fast approaching, Lions will receive weekly homework from their SAT revision books. This will include a piece from their Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar books and a piece from their Maths book every week. Miss Luker 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. We will also be using these books to help us during school time as part of interventions and boosters, so please ensure that these books are always available in school.
Homework will be given to the children every Friday and is due back into school by Thursday at the latest.
