Welcome to Class 6S
I am Miss Stalker the class teacher and we are supported by Mrs Shaw (teaching assistant) and Miss Crozier (support assistant)
The class will be taught by Mrs Stembridge on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.
It is Spring 2 already! Where has the time gone?
This is possibly the busiest term in Year 6 as the children are now in full swing of preparations for the end of year assessments and are, as always, working exceptionally hard, making us all very proud every day.
We are all very excited about our new topic which is 'World War 2' and we are looking forward to all the interesting and exciting activities we have planned to learn about the causes of the war, key events in chronological order, identifying the countries involved on a map, including the most and least affected areas, evacuation, the blitz, air raid shelters, rationing and much more. We also have experience days, visitors and class novels planned to really bring life during the war to life for the children which we know will inspire their writing in English and Topic sessions.
Our Science will also be linked to World War 2 as the children will be creating circuits to make a city during war times with lights which can be blacked out and working sirens to be used in an air raid.
I hope the children are as excited as I am for this busy, but fun, term. I will share pictures from experiences, visitors and lessons as well as the children's work on this page so keep an eye out.
I would like to say an extremely big thank you to all the wonderful parents of Class 6S. You all helped the children get into the spirit of our evacuation experience which really helped them to understand what it would’ve really been like as a child during World War 2: they all looked fantastic in their evacuee costumes and the letters that you spent time writing to your children even brought tears to our eyes!
Thank you so much again.
Pictures from our day will be uploaded very soon.
