Welcome to Class 6.
The staff team in year 6 are Miss Huntley, Mrs Prest, Mrs Eadsforth and Mrs Dickinson. Our job this year is to make sure you not only learn new knowledge and skills and make the most of your final year at St. Cuthbert’s but you become ready to move onto Secondary School.
Miss Huntley is your teacher and Mrs Prest your teaching Assistant. Mrs Prest will be in every morning and some afternoons. Mrs Eadsforth will be in class on a Tuesday afternoon teaching you Design and Technology and Mrs Dickinson will be in one afternoon carrying out some interventions.
Now we are in the Spring Term we turn our attention to WW2. We will get out and about in our local area to see how Seaham was affected and look at how this war changed the lives of people. In English we will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom and Once linked to our WW2 topic and then after half term we will be reading Journey to the River Sea.
Mrs Prest loves maths and she will give you lots of tips and tricks to help you. You will have great fun trying to beat her with your arithmetic knowledge on a Monday. Our science topics are healthy bodies as well as evolution and inheritance and where possible we will carrying out investigations and practical lessons. We like to get creative in year 6, so in the Spring Term we will using our sketch books and exploring Frida Kahlo and trying our hand at self-portraits. For PE this term, we do gymnastics, dance and basketball. Your PE days this term are Thursday and Friday.
We won’t be working in just our bubbles anymore so this means you can play with all of your friends at break and lunch times and have the opportunity to spend time and play with your Reception Class buddies who you will meet in September once they have settled in.
