Year 6

Welcome to Miss Strange's Class 


Year 6 are taught by Miss Strange, Miss Stalton and Mrs Bradshaw. In the morning, we complete our English and Maths learning, and we study wider curriculum subjects in the afternoon, such as History, Geography, Music, Spanish and Art. We do P.E. on a Friday, in which we play a variety of sports, and we walk or run the Daily Mile each week. In English, we use high quality texts to support our learning, whilst we work on narratives, non-fiction text and Shakespeare. Our Maths lessons focus on a range of skills, which we then apply to a variety of situations. We learn about World War II and The Industrial Revolution in History, and in Geography we look at world maps, and the issue of sustainability. 


Each member of the class choses a book from the Accelerated Reader scheme. The expectation is for them to read at home as much as possible and to complete their reading diaries as they do so. This reading may be independent, or they may read to someone at home. They should bring their book and their diary into school every day, and they will read to an adult in school on a weekly basis. The children are asked to change their books once they have completed an Accelerated Reader quiz. 


Some members of Year 6 are members of Young Citizens, and some are given other responsibilities in school, such as looking after the books and keeping them organised, and helping with the younger children.
