Year 6 – Purple

                                     

Welcome to Purple Class.

Our class teacher for the 2018-19 academic year is Mrs Lyndsey Martin and our Higher Level Teaching Assistant is Mrs Angela Wilkinson.

In Purple Class, we cover many exciting topics to enhance children’s knowledge and understanding in-line with The National Curriculum 2014.  British Values also underpin our curriculum.

Our key topic areas this year are:

Would Ernest Shakleton plan differently if he had to explore The Sahara Desert?

What would Jim Hawkins think of the world today?

To be, or not to be: that is the question?

Have we always looked like this?

Why was the Islamic Civilization around AD900 known as ‘The Golden Age’?

PE:  Purple Class will have their PE lessons on Thursdays.  It is essential that children have the correct PE kit in school.

Indoor sessions:

  • Black shorts
  • Red polo shirt
  • Black pumps

Outdoor sessions

  • Black shorts or dark tracksuit bottoms (winter)
  • Red polo shirt
  • Trainers (not fashionable)
  • Sweater (winter)

Our Learning Line

The Learning Line helps us the children to evaluate their own progress in lessons. This ties in with our survival and endurance theme for the year which starts off with our first topic about Ernest Shackleton . Ours shows  the  journey of Ernest Shackleton. It follows the process of: Plan, Understand, Passion, Act, Evaluate, Embed.

 

Investors in pupils

Our class target is:  To always work hard/be focused and equip ourselves with the knowledge we need to meet our targets.

More detailed information about class activities will be shared with parents on our weekly class newsletters.

Homework

Homework is explained on the newsletter each week.  It will be handed out on a Wednesday and must be returned to school the following Wednesday.  Homework will include: English, Maths, Spelling, Times Tables and a piece of ‘Talk’ homework which will link to our worship theme.
