In Class 6 reading books will be changed and weekly challenges set every Monday. Please write in your child’s reading record every time you listen to them read.
We have PE with Tom every Wednesday during the Summer term.
📚Reading at Home📚
Only some children read regularly at home each week, reading at home with your child for 10 minutes each day equates to 30 extra hours of practise each year. There is a significant difference in the fluency and comprehension skills of the children who read at home compared to the children that don’t.
This week in Maths we have been learning to count in 10s. In Literacy we are focusing on The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson. On Thursday it was lovely to see so many children wearing their Easter hats. The entries for the decorated egg competition we fantastic. Well done everyone!
Monday 11th - Friday 15th March 2019
We have been thinking about 2D shapes in Maths, we have been naming each shape and working out how many sides and corners each of them have. We also revisited ordering numbers to 20, the children amazed me by how quickly they could do it! We tried different fruits and vegetables this week to linking to our theme of Supertato. Friday was Red Nose Day, thank you for all the kind donations. Next Friday (22/3) is the latest ‘Stay and Play’ session.

WORLD BOOK DAY
Thursday 7th March 2019
Everyone loved dressing up as our favourite book character. We shared lots of stories together and we made a 'Supertato' as we have been reading lots of 'Supertato' stories lately. At the end of the day we all had a biscuit and a cup of hot chocolate. What a brilliant day!
25th February - 1st March 2019
In Maths we have been working hard to find different ways to make 10. We have also been trying our best to form our numbers correctly. We have been reading the story of Supertato in Literacy and we have been writing sentences about the Evil Pea!
Don't forget to come dressed as your favourite character for World Book Day on Thursday 7th March!
Happy Half Term!!!
All of the teachers from Class 6 wish you a wonderful half term break! The children have been working very hard and deserve a rest! Unfortunately our class iPad is having the screen repaired so I haven’t been able to post on this webpage as much as I would have liked to. Normal service should be be resumed when we’re back at school.
- Please make sure your child brings their reading books to school everyday.
- No lip balm or gloss should be brought into school.
- If your child brings something in for ‘show and tell’ it must be small enough to fit in their tray.
Have a fantastic week off!
Monday 21st - Friday 25th January 2019
The children have been learning about the story of Jemima the Elephant this week, see if you can get your child to retell the story to you. In Maths, we having been learning the days of the week. The children have been practising a song to help them remember each day and I’ll record them performing it this week and share it on this page. In cooking we made mini pizzas, the children had to carefully count their toppings onto the base.
Thank you for your cooperation this week when the school grounds were icy. It was very frustrating for the children to be kept inside on Wednesday and Thursday, so when the weather had brightened up on Friday afternoon we had a great run around with lots of different equipment.
Hope you have a great week, Mr Gibbons. 😎
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I hope that everyone has had a wonderful Christmas and new year.
January so far...
We have been reading the Elmer stories since we returned to school. The children have been writing simple sentences about the colourful elephant and we have been doing lots of creative activities including creating our own unique elephants and making Elmer toast. In Maths we have been learning about ordinal language, we took part in different races and then talked about our final positions. Everyone enjoyed taking part and it didn’t matter where we placed. I hope you enjoy the photographs.
The run up to Christmas is always the busiest time of the year, please accept my apologies for not updating this webpage as often as I would have liked to.
The children have had great fun doing the Christmas plays and taking part in lots more Christmas activities.
The Maths 'Stay and Play' session was a huge success, it was great to see so many children having a nice time with their families. Thank you to everyone that attended and gave their feedback.

On Friday it was children in need we enjoyed being at school in non-uniform and we also made a Pudsey bear mask.

It was lovely to hear about the different things the children had been up to over the half term holiday. This week the children enjoyed decorating a pumpkin in preparation for the Halloween disco that lots of children came to. In maths we have been learning about 2D shapes and we have been seeing if we can spot shapes around school. We have been learning about rhyming words in Literacy and singing lots of nursery rhymes. I hope you enjoy looking through the pictures. 😄 Mr Gibbons.

This week we were so lucky to be visited by some owls from a local owl sanctuary. We had a great time learning facts about owls and we all got the chance to hold and stroke an owl.
On Friday afternoon is was wonderful to see so many mums, dads, grandparents and siblings in Class 6 playing and learning with the children. Thank you to everyone that came, I hope you enjoyed it.
Below there are 3 different slideshows of photos from this week. I hope you enjoy sharing them together.
Have a great weekend, Mr Gibbons.
Monday 1st October - Friday 5th October
Another busy week has gone by in Class 6, the children have been working hard and it is great to see the progress they have made since starting Reception. This week we have been focusing on the story ‘Owl Babies’. We have enjoyed sharing the story, labelling an owl and making a chocolate nest. On Friday as it was wet playtime, Reception had another dance in the hall because we all loved the sponsored dance so much! I hope you enjoy looking through the pictures below.
Finally, thank you to everyone that has brought in sponsor money so far from the sponsored dance. Mrs Phelps will announce the total amount raised in the near future. I am sure that the school will be able to buy lots of new books to help the children learn to read.
Monday 24th September - Friday 28th September
What a busy week we have had in Class 6! It started with yoga and ended with a sponsored dance, we even found time to do some cooking as well as all of our hard work.
This week in yoga we learned a new song where we had to listen to what actions we had to do with our beanbag. We also learned a new yoga pose for each letter of the alphabet.
Every day Class 6 are practising their writing skills. We have been writing simple statements.
On Monday (10/09/18) we had our first yoga session with Sandra from YoKids.
The children enjoyed practising lots of different yoga poses linked to the animals on Old MacDonald’s farm. Everyone tried their best and listened really well to Sandra. Well done Class 6!
