Welcome to our Y6 class!
The teachers are Mrs Patel and Mrs Patel!
The children refer to us as Mrs Patel and Mrs P.
Welcome to our new Y6 class. We are so glad to be back at school, ready to learn and progress academically, socially and spiritually.
I am Mrs. Patel, the class teacher. I love teaching, reading, cycling, going for long walks and hikes and eating desserts!
There is another Mrs. Patel who works in our class and she is awesome. We call her Mrs P. to avoid confusion. She makes sure the class is running smoothly for the children and myself alike. She will also be teaching Science and Topic and PSHE in the afternoons. Mrs P. loves walking, cooking, reading and making sure everyone is OK!
- Please could you make sure the children come in the correct school uniform everyday.
- PE is on Fridays in Y6 and the children need to come in their PE kits with the school jumper over it. They may also wear their trainers on that day.
- Please make sure the children bring in their own water bottles.
- Hand sanitisers will be in class and in the corridor so please encourage your child to use it frequently.
- If your child is going to be absent, please let myself know through Class DoJo or the school office. I will be sending messages and reminders frequently through Class DoJo so please make sure you check it.
- If you need to contact me, please do so via Class DoJo.
Learning in Y6 in Autumn 1, 2020.
In the mornings, the children will be learning English and Maths daily.
- In English, We will be covering the class novel "Wolf Brother" daily and working on our speaking and listening, reading, comprehension and writing skills. We will also be covering grammar, spelling and vocabulary skills.
It is very important this year that the children read at home. I will be teaching the skills that are required but it is also vital the children read at home. This will enhance their skills in vocabulary, creative writing, and comprehension.
- In Maths, the children will be working on place value, addition and subtraction along with multiplication and division. They will learn this through Arithmetic and Reasoning. Again, reading at home will enhance their comprehension skills to understand the questions in reasoning. The children will be given homework to do with Purple Mash and TT Rockstars weekly.
- In RE the children will be learning about The Kingdom of God and what it means to them. They will also explore what it means in the Catholic faith.
- In Topic the children will study local Geography and History and Art by exploring the Preston Docks.
- In Science the children will be learning about Electricity and investigating circuits.
- In PE, the children will leaning the skills for Dodgeball and Handball.
- In Computing, the children will be working on their Coding skills.
