Curriculum & Class Information - Class 6

 

 

 

Summer Term

As usual we make use of teachers' expertise and swap for some subjects.  These are as follows:

Stapeley Mile Friday am (jointly with Class 5) 

ICT - Tuesday pm with Mr Cura

Music - Friday am with Mrs Acklam

French - Tuesday and Thursday with Madame Potts 

Mrs Keenan teaches the class on Wednesday mornings (for Spelling and RE)and Thursday afternoons (for Art and Literacy)

Homework is given on a Friday and brought back to school by Wednesday.  This will usually be Maths or Literacy or both and will reflect the topics we are studying in those lessons.  Mrs Keenan also sets Spelling homework for the class.  We are also encouraging the children to learn their Maths Facts.  Everyone has a Maths Facts Book to help them with this.   

We try to do Guided Reading once a week and we focus on reading comprehension, but we encourage the children to read outside of school.
