Year 6 – Zebras

Welcome to the Zebra’s class page!

We are one of the Year 6 classes and are the oldest children in the school. Our teacher is Miss Crumbley and she is supported by Miss Turnbull and Miss McIver.

In the Zebras we work hard, but we also have lots of fun! We particularly enjoy it when visitors come in to help with our learning and we are looking forward to going out on plenty of trips over the year.

As a class we are involved in lots of exciting activities every week. We enjoy working with our PE coach. We also take part in dance with and love to learn tricky routines. On a Tuesday we learn Spanish with Mrs Bennaceur and on a Wednesday we do music with Franco and Steve.

As well as all of these exciting events, we also enjoy doing English, Maths, Science and Topic. In English we base our learning around a class reader; this year we will be reading many texts including: ‘Walking with Witches’, ‘Holes’ and ‘Floodland’. In Maths we are becoming much more confident at using all four operations and are developing our problem solving and reasoning skills. In Science we are looking forward to carrying out lots of investigations and learning about light, electricity, living things and evolution and inheritance. This year our topics are: Our Local Area, Crime and Punishment, Extreme Earth, Ancient Egypt and Trade and Economics.

We need to remember to bring our reading folders backwards and forwards to school each day so that everyone can read in class each morning. We all feel that it is important to work on our reading at home too and try to improve our reading fluency.

We have been set a challenge of trying to read 100 books before leaving primary school. Who will read the most?

In Year 6 we look forward to going on our ‘Stay Away’ in the Summer term which covers the outdoor adventures part of the PE curriculum and lets us have a night away from home.

Part of being in Year 6 is preparing the children for moving on to their Secondary education so we strive for all children to achieve their best and become confident, independent learners. We also strive to help children to learn the value of respect for themselves, others and their environment.

Don’t forget, National Tests week is the week beginning Monday 10th May 2021.

We have access to multiple online websites to help us such as: Reading Plus, Sum Dog, Times Table Rockstars, Spelling Shed, Prodigy and Reading Theory. We love to go on these at home as well as school.
