Blue 4 - Mrs Godfrey

Blue 4 - Mrs Godfrey's Class Welcome to Y6

Welcome to Year 6

During the first half of the Autumn term we will consider and explore the magical fantasy world of Harry Potter, created by J.K.Rowling. This topic will inspire the work we do in other curriculum areas and we shall visit Harry Potter world to find out more about how the series of books were adapted and made into films on the Warner Bros. Studio Tour.


During the second & third half terms we will be venturing through a portal to the past where our learning will centre around many aspects of WWII and involve a visit to Kelham Island Museum dressed as evacuees to take part in several workshops which will explore evacuation, the fire pump drill, being inside an Anderson Shelter, cracking Morse code messages and lots more.


After February half term up to Easter our learning will be focussed on the theme survival and Darwin's theories of natural selection and survival of the fittest.


Homework will be given out every Friday and is due in (at the latest) the following Wednesday. The homework will be a takeaway menu whereby the children can choose from a range of different homework styles such as Maths and English or if they want to be creative they can create a piece of art or a model. Children also need to remember to do their spelling, grammar & punctuation and maths tasks in the back of their books. Leading up to SAT's there will be more of a focus on key skills and homework will be SAT style maths questions, Grammar & Punctuation questions, UKS2 spellings and reading comprehensions.


The children need to be reading at home regularly.(minimum 5 minutes a night)

Children are using the reading system called ACCELERATED READING. Each child is regularly tested on their comprehension skills and is then allocated a number band to choose from. Children are responsible for reading at school, at home and take regular reading tests using Ipads at school  to check their comprehension of the books they have read before changing their books.



Helping at home with Maths: ROCK STARS!


Each child has been allocated a login name and password to practice their times tables at home and at school.

Pupils are tested regularly.



PE has changed back to every Monday and Thursday afternoon. During the second half of the Spring term Blue 4 will be doing cricket and team building & problem solving. They need to bring their Sparken Hill school PE kit into school on a Monday and leave it in school all week to be taken home on a Friday for washing.
