Welcome to Year 6!

Miss Hopwood is the class teacher and Mrs Hopwood is our teaching assistant.

Year 6 are currently enjoying learning about how leisure and entertainment in the UK has changed over the last 100 years.  We have especially enjoyed listening to different genres of music from each decade, starting with the 1920’s.  The children have been learning why and how music has changed over time.  Two of their favourite tracks we have listened to so far have been Benny Goodman’s ‘Sing, Sing, Sing’ (1930’s) and the Kinks song ‘You really Got Me’ (1960’s).

Classroom Information

Please encourage your child to learn their weekly spellings.  They can practice these by writing the words into sentences (purple exercise book) and by completing the handwriting sheet as part of our weekly home learning.

We try to build ‘quizzing’ time into our week as much as possible.  Please continue to encourage your child to read.  Below you can find a link which provides information on how parents can help their Year 6 child with reading.  There is also a link for recommended reads for this age group.

All children are allowed to bring a named water bottle into school.  This should only contain water.
