UKS2 - Miss Brownley
Welcome to Class 6!
Welcome from Miss Brownley
Hello and a warm welcome to our class page 😁! This year is your final year at St. Peter's and it is already set to be a fun, exciting and busy one.
Our topic for Autumn 1 is Sow, Grow and Farm!
In the Sow, Grow and Farm project, the children will learn about allotments in the United Kingdom and how the government encouraged people to have them to support food rationing during the Second World War. They will learn about food webs and animal life cycles, including how living things are dependent on one another within a habitat. The children will investigate the different ways that plants reproduce and will dissect flowering plants to identify the different structures. They will have the opportunity to learn about farming in the United Kingdom and the techniques used in modern farming, including the challenges that farmers face. They will explore the benefits of eating seasonally and about the pros and cons of importing food. An East Bridgford Local Study will also form part of this project, to discover and examine our agricultural roots (excuse the pun!).
- In our classroom this year we will be supported at times by Mrs Smith. Mrs Sayal is also available to support your children with pastoral elements of their school-life.
- Every week there will be a homework e-newsletter to parents/guardians via email, which will let you know what we have been up to that week. It will also detail any homework to complete. This will be emailed out each Friday and can also be found on the class page of the website.
- This year, PE will be on a Thursday. Children will need to bring their PE kit into school to get changed into, and an additional jacket (if required) - recommended now it is getting colder!
- A clean, fresh water bottle is to be brought into school every day and kept on the table if there is space, or on the floor next to their place.
- Please name all clothing and equipment. Children have had a name label placed onto their diaries.
- School diaries and reading books - These will be used in school by the children as well as at home, so they will need bringing in each day. The children will write their weekly spellings in these and also keep a log of any personal reading in there, as well as what books they have read in a book list. Children are welcome to bring in their own books to read from home, however we do have a large and varied selection in our school library.
Handwriting and spelling will take place every day ensuring these skills are being taught, practised and applied.
Spellings will be tested every Friday. Any words which the children have spelt incorrectly will be written in their diaries and will need to be practised at home for retesting the following week. As we move through the term there may be additional spellings that the children bring home as homework, but these will always be detailed/explained in the weekly e-newsletter (emailed and available on the website).
Wilford Strikes Back! Wilford is making a return to Class 6. Your children will have written the date which they will bring Wilford home in their diaries, so you will know in advance.
Forms - It is worth keeping in mind that if you are able to fill in forms online for the office, or email these, rather than children bringing in printed versions, this is much quicker.
Communication - If you have any queries, please feel free to use firstname.lastname@example.org to contact me directly, as we are unable to book face-to-face appointments at this time - I check this mailbox immediately before and after school and aim to respond to you as promptly as I am able. If your query is urgent and requires an immediate response, please call the school office as the first point of contact on 01949 20226.
