Chestnut Class - Year 6

Chestnut class teacher is Miss Price
Mrs O'Mara is our TA 4 days a week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Tedd is our TA on a Wednesday morning. 
Welcome to the
Chestnut Class Page
 
 I am very excited to be the teaching you again in Chestnut Class. 
 Our topic for the Autumn Term will be 'Out of this World' which is part of our whole school skills focus of 'Discover', based on the skills of being a Historian. We are going to be finding out all about space and vikings. 
 
Within our first few weeks of Year 6, we have our residential at Marchants Hill to look forward to.

 Homework 

Each term, the children will be given a new ‘Independent Homework Grid’. In Year 6, there will be set ‘hand in’ days at the bottom which is the minimum requirement. Each task should be taken from a different row and column. The amount of time a child chooses to spend on a project is up to them. Please focus on the presentation!

 

After completing times tables and arithmetic on a Friday, children should choose an area that they would like to practise at home to help them improve their score each week.
