Our teacher is Mr Rix.

Mr Rix

Maths will be taught through White Rose as usual. Mrs Collier Woods will be in two afternoons per week teaching RE, PSHE and FRENCH and of course Mr Ellis will be here on a Monday as normal, teaching PE. We will also be welcoming a new face, Mrs Elwick, to the Year 6 team, who is coming in to teach some of the maths, and an old friend of the school, Mrs Muir, who is back for her second stint, replacing Mrs Raistrick.

We will be doing lots of brilliant topics this year including: Blood Heart, Hola Mexico, Frozen Kingdoms, Tomorrow’s World, Britain at War and Darwin’s Delights. They sound great don’t they, and all courtesy of our fab new curriculum…CURRICULUM MAESTRO!!!!!

We will be learning spellings every Monday to Friday through Rising Stars Spelling and the children need to bring their spelling book to these lessons and learn their given spellings at home.

Homework is set on Friday and handed back by the following Tuesday. It will alternate between maths and literacy.

The children will be expected to read regularly, and learn their spellings as well. Year 6 is a touch year at the best of times, but after missing half of year 4, almost a term of year 5 we must work really hard to catch up and reach our potential.
