Class 13

Mr Arnold, Mrs Hulme and Mrs Lester

On this page you will find up to date information about current topics, information about class learning and key dates for your diary.

The Year 6 teachers this year are Mr Arnold, Mrs Hulme and Mrs Lester. If you have any concerns, questions or would simply like to talk to us, please do not hesitate to arrange a meeting.  



Hello YEAR 6 children, parents and carers,

While lots of us will be required to work and learn from home in the coming weeks we will be using this class page, our Year 6 twitter page (please follow us at) @SMAAAclass013 and Toco Mail to keep in touch with our children at home and send out work activities and support. Please keep checking these platforms for updates and new tasks. 

If you are struggling with any of the work you have been asked to complete then you can message your teachers directly via Toco Mail

Hopefully you have all received your packs to use at home. Within them are three weeks work separated into different weeks. We have also included some extra activities inside the folder to complete alongside the directed activities. Detailed below are timetables for the next few weeks to help organise when the activities should be completed (this will also be sent to the children via Toco Mail):

Check out the activities listed below.

How many can you take part in?

1. Chester Zoo Virtual Tour

2. Once Upon A Robot- Story Competition

Can you write a story where the main character is a robot?

Your story can be set on another planet where he or she has travelled to. It can be a story about how your robot gets into trouble because they do things wrong and gets into trouble with its owners. Maybe your robot could go on holiday with you. The choice is yours!

TOP TIPS FOR STORY WRITING

Have a beginning, middle and end for your story.

Use lots of description so that your reader can create a picture of your story.

Give your main character some kind of problem to solve as this will give you a good structure

Describe your robot

E.g. The enormous silvery head turned towards me, then he smiled…”

Good Luck!

Entries can be uploaded to this site for entry

It might be nice to send them into school on Toco mail too

3. NOT ALL SUPERHEROES WEAR CAPES!

Could you use this poster as inspiration to create your own?                               

Split you page into 4.

Top Left: design a superhero mask.

Top Right: the message ‘not all….’.

Bottom Left:the safety slogan shown.

Bottom Right: 3 uplifting words.

Class Dojo

Our class reward system is Class Dojos.

Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more.

Children will be rewarded with prizes / certificates.

However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of  homework etc. 

 

Please remember that we are always in school early and at the door if you need a quick word  and if it needs more time then we can make an appointment for before or after school. It is better to come and talk to us than worry about something that we can solve together.

We really appreciate your support and look forward to working with your child as this year progresses.

Football news will follow as we go along and revision clubs will continue on Tuesday and Thursday after school.

Let us remember what it says in our mission statement –
That we are all valued and recognised for our unique contributions.
