Welcome Back to Class 10
Welcome back to Autumn B!
Class 10 have had a great start to the year. Our first creative topic was all about WW2 focusing specifically on the Blitz and the role of women during the war. As part of this topic, the children have built Anderson shelters, made gas masks and explored the 'Dig for Victory' campaign whilst learning all about winter vegetables. We were even able to plant some vegetables in our school allotment and Polytunnel. We've also learned some WW2 songs.
To develop some start of the year team building, we had a fabulous trip to Beacon Fell. Even though we battled the weather, the children loved exploring the fell, building dens and orienteering maps to find hidden codes. Myself and Mrs True will be working together in the spring term to develop orienteering in school, which the Y6 cohort will be very much a part of.
Pupil voice was an an extremely important part of the first half-term and our year 6 pupils spent time applying for the position of head boy and head girl. This post was so popular - we even appointed deputy roles too! We also asked all our year 6 pupils to apply for a role on one of our junior leadership teams:
- Environmental leaders
- Sports leaders
- School leaders
- Playground leaders
They have taken on their roles in a very mature, serious manner and have already become a wonderful part of our school leadership team. All of the Y6's got their own "seeds" in October as well; a reception child who they will nurture and care for as they progress through their first year at Fulwood and Cadley. They've already spent some time with them and will be doing some Christmas crafts with them later in the term.
The term ahead again looks exciting as we begin our new topic ' Extreme Earth - Survival of the Fittest' which looks at evolution, global warming and natural disasters along side sustainability. We have also written to our French Pen Pals and are eagerly awaiting their reply. This half term, we will also be joined by a student teacher, Mr Grant, to support us in our learning until the Christmas break.
As always, I want Class 10 to continue being independent, focussed, trying their best, being kind and most importantly, keep smiling.
Physical Education/ Uniform
Class PE Days for year 6 are: Monday and Tuesday. Please come to school dressed in your PE kits on those days.
A reminder for our PE uniform:
- Navy hoodie with school badge
- White crew neck t-shirt (preferably with school badge)
- Navy blue jogging/tracksuit bottoms (especially in winter)
- Navy shorts (For summer or if warm enough)
- Trainers (that you don't mind getting dirty)
Please ensure that all PE kit and school uniform is labelled with your child's name inside. Your child is responsible for their own property and must look after their uniforms, especially jumpers and cardigans. Please also make sure that your child has a pair of wellies in school, with their name clearly labelled inside. The children will be doing lots of outdoor activities with forest schools and on rainy days will require their wellies.
Pupils will be set learning tasks in the core subjects of maths and English through SATs Companion, alongside daily reading and TT Rock Stars each week. Additional tasks across the foundation subjects may also be set, which the children will be informed of. Home learning tasks will be set on Friday and must be completed by the following Friday each week. Additionally, a home learning activity sheet will be sent out each half term and the children will be encouraged to complete as many activities as possible.
Instructions for home learning can be found on our class communication and learning platform 'Showbie' which may direct them to other learning platforms.
Your child should have brought home a username and password for both of these learning platforms, as well as TT rock star. If your child is unable to log on at home, please email the class teacher to receive support.
If your child is unable to complete their home learning, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If possible, please can you provide your child with their own individual headphones which will be labelled and kept in their tray at school.
An inexpensive, wired pair are preferably as large headphones will not fit in their tray. School will not be held responsible for expensive headsets going missing so please do not send in ear buds or air pods.
Water bottles/ healthy snacks
Our classroom does get warm so please ensure your child is sent into school with a refillable water bottle. This must only contain water and not juice or cordial. If your child would like a mid-morning snack at break, please ensure this is a healthy snack like fruit or yogurt.
