Welcome to class 6H!
Our class teacher is Miss Heckels. If you have any questions or you would like to talk to her about anything, she is on the KS2 playground before and after school every day,
6H are a group of friendly, enthusiastic children who love a challenge and a bit of competition. We are currently in our final year here at Greenfields and loving it! We are enjoying being the oldest and most responsible in the school, setting good examples for the younger children. It is great being in Year 6 – we get lots of jobs around the school, such as being House Captains or Class Ambassadors, where we can really make an impact on our school and our school mates.
In Year 6 we work as a big team; we help each other out and rise to every challenge that we face. We know that this year is going to be tough, but we don’t give up and we give everything a try!
This half term, our Enquiry theme is about World War 2. We loved looking at some real artefacts from during the war, including a gas mask and some ration books. We really enjoy looking at real items, because it brings our learning to life and allows us to ask lots of questions and have a discussion.
To go alongside our Enquiry theme, we are reading a book in English called ‘My Secret War Diary’ by Marcia Williams. We love how it is written in the first person with some humorous comments (we have a good sense of humour in 6H and love a joke!). It’s very different from ‘Silverfin’, the book we are reading at the end of each day (Miss Heckels enjoys leaving us in suspense each time, so we are desperate to know what happens next!).
We thoroughly enjoyed Forest School last half term – we are so sad that it was the last one at this school! However, we are excited for our next Science topic, which is Electricity. We took part in a really fun activity to hook us in to the topic, where we had to investigate how the whole class could work together to light up an LED ball.
Have a look at some of our photographs so you can see what we’ve been up to:
To find out what we are learning about each half term, the Year 6 curriculum plans can be found here.
Each half term we have a learning reflection event to celebrate the work we have been doing. Our parents and carers are invited into school so that we can show them what we have been learning.
In Year 6, we also work on developing good learning habits. You can see them all by clicking on this link: GCPS Learning Habits
Important things to bring to school:
Water Bottles – children can bring their own water bottle into school and store it by the sink in the classroom. Please make sure that water bottles only have water inside.
Reading Folders – children need their reading book and reading diary in school every day.
PE – children need their PE kit in school every day. PE kit consists of a white t- shirt, black shorts and plimsolls/sand shoes.
Homework – Homework is sent home every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday morning.
