Week Beginning 30th March

Hello everyone. I hope you're all keeping well and finding lots of things to do. I've put together a list of suggested daily tasks for this week for English and Maths - it's in the pdf downloads along with the resources you need to complete the tasks. Do as much as you can, when you can. Is any one else doing PE with Joe Wicks every day? We've been doing it and it's made me realise that I should have been doing the daily mile with you! I would love to hear what you're all up to and to see any work you've done. We're working on ways we can all keep in touch, so please hang on to anything you would like to show everyone and we'll hopefully be able to share it after Easter.

Take care of yourselves and your families,

Ms Catchpole

Welcome to our Year 6 class!

We have 20 pupils in our class. We work with a range of teachers and teaching assistants. In the mornings, Mrs Gwynn teaches on Mondays and Tuesdays and Ms Catchpole teaches on Wednesday to Friday. In the afternoons, we work with the Year 5 children. Miss Whitehead, Mrs Williams and Ms Catchpole teach the afternoons. We also work with a specialist PE coaches - Mr Segrave. Mrs Anderson, Mrs Clarke and Mrs Want are our Teaching Assistants.

Spring Term

This term we will be covering a geography theme based on the Mediterranean region of Europe. We will also take inspiration from our class novel Mortal Engines By Philip Reeve, using the theme of Marvellous Machines across the curriculum. Please see our curriculum information sheet for more details.

What do you need for school?

You will need:

To know if you are having school dinner or a packed lunch and what your after-school arrangements are (going home on the bus, going to Puffins, going to a club, being picked up or walking home on your own).

Your reading book, reading record and any completed homework.

A drinking bottle of fresh WATER.

A fresh fruit snack for break time.

A coat or waterproof jacket - we work and play outside in all weathers!

Outdoor shoes and a change of clothes for the school field in winter.

Your PE Kit (team coloured T-shirt, shorts and trainers, plus track suit type trousers and top during the winter months). This is kept in school for the half term.

A warm hat and gloves in cold weather.

A sun hat during in hot weather.

All stationery is provided so you do not need a pencil case.

Feedback to improve our learning

We have all been involved in a dialogue about the high expectations we have of all our pupils. Effective feedback involves a dialogue between teachers and learners to identify what has been done well and the next steps to learning. Pupils are regularly given verbal feedback about their work and areas to work on. Where appropriate, we use pink highlighting to identify where we are Tickled Pink that the Success Criteria (expectations set out at the start of the lesson) have been achieved. Green highlighting identifies a next step (Green for Growth). Children are also encouraged to self-edit and correct or improve something using their purple polish pen. For more information, please do ask your child.

In Yew Class we take pride in our work and we make sure that certain things are always correct.
