Welcome to the P6/7 class page!

Our teacher this year is Miss Newman (currently covering Mrs Barr’s Maternity leave). We have two additional adults in our classroom: Kathleen (general CA) and William (SEN assistant).  

We are a happy and industrious class, always willing to work hard and learn new things. Every day is action packed with a range of activities but in the morning, we start with number facts recall, Accelerated Reader, Newsround readers and our PATHS pupil of the day. We have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  

In Numeracy, we have been consolidating our knowledge of place value and the four operations. Throughout the year we will be using practical resources to support our knowledge of different topics.  Every Friday is dedicated to problem-solving activities and the children love getting together to work out the problems. Additionally, we have worked so hard on learning our number facts and times tables through games and quizzes.  

Our literacy sessions are broken into 6 main areas: spelling, writing, comprehension, grammar, novel-based and reading. Our class novel this term is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. Each week we read this novel together and create a class discussion, which may lead to another exciting activity. We have been learning about explanation texts this year and have had loads of fun constructing/writing our own explanation texts on how to build your own iron man.  

Our guided reading and shared reading sessions allow children to explore the reading skills required at P6/7. These are known as the reading VIPERS: vocabulary, inference, prediction, explanation, retrieval and summarising. In guided reading, we have a carousel that rotates each day. Different activities include, AR time, outdoor spelling, reading task or literacy strips.  

Each member of our class has an allocated job, which they carry out in school or in the classroom. We have elected student council and eco-council members too.  

We are all looking forward to what this year may bring. 

Keep your eyes peeled for more exciting content throughout the year!
