Class Six

Welcome to Class Six


Welcome back - we hope you are all well. We are looking forward to starting your final year here at The Grange!


Any questions, please feel free to ring at the front office. 

Many thanks, 

Mrs Craggs



Class Teacher: Mrs Craggs

Teacher: Mr Evans

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bailey



Reading: Please ensure you are all reading every night and your reading record is signed and brought back into school, along with your home/school reading book, everyday. 


Spelling: Please ensure you are all practising your spellings in your spelling book every night and returning it to school everyday. Spellings will be tested every Friday and new spellings will be handed out on a Monday. 


Times Tables: Please ensure you are logging on to TT Rockstars at least three times a week and spending some time learning and revising your times tables. 


At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks we set as homework.


Obviously the level of engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)


The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.


Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home. 


Autumn Term Learning


During this term, our topic is ‘Viva Brazil’ and as part of our Geography curriculum, we will be using maps and atlases to locate Brazil and surrounding countries and discuss and use a widening range of geographical terms. We will also be learning about the Amazon Rainforest and comparing and contrasting the rural and urban areas of Brazil. 


In English we will be reading 'Running Wild’ by Michael Morpurgo and discussing in great detail the impact of a tsunami and what life could be like living in a jungle. We will be using these discussions to create pieces of writing including: postcards, diary entries, newspaper articles and stories. We will also be producing non-chronological reports on different animals and discussing and debating deforestation. 


In Maths we will be focusing on our arithmetic and ensuring we are confident with our four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). We will also be working on our place value to ensure we are confident with working with 7 digit numbers and learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. We will also be revisiting and learning about coordinates on the 1st quadrant grid and on a 4 quadrant grid. We will also be spending a lot of time developing our reasoning skills in order to solve problems.


Class 6 will be taking part in outdoor PE on a Wednesday and swimming on a Thursday.


Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
