Class 6 news...

Prodigy Maths – Letter sent home on 12/10/17

Dear parents/carers,

Yesterday your child will have brought home log-in details for an education mathematics game called ‘Prodigy Maths’.

I am delighted to see how active the class have been last night; in total they answered 1,434 questions between them! This practice in the subject while outside of school will enhance their knowledge and confidence when tackling reasoning problems.

I am writing to reiterate the message that I have told the class. The app does offer opportunities to purchase extra ‘achievements’ or ‘items’. These add-ons are not needed to achieve the best score. I have told the class not to purchase anything without first asking for permission from a carer or parent. I would like to also inform carers and parents that I would not like the pupils to spend real money by purchasing items. It will not affect their score or learning experience.

Many thanks,
Mr Lancaster
Class 6 Teacher

Prince Paris and Helen of Troy

This week we have been using ‘Talk for Writing’ to help us to learn about the story of Prince Paris and how Helen of Troy fell madly in love with him – causing the battle of Troy to start.

We will be learning more about Greek Myths and legends until the end of term. We will especially be looking at the legend of Odysseus.


Here is a video of a short part of the story;

Global Scholars

This year we are proud to announce that we will be taking part in the Global Scholars partnership. Global Scholars allows our class to communicate safely with students around the world. We will spend part of our timetable each week working together to write, create videos and discuss global matters within an e-classroom with our peers from around the world, learning about other cultures and how other children learn in the process.

We are a pioneer school as we are the first school outside of London to take part in Global Scholars.

If parents would like to know anything further, a letter was sent out earlier this week, or they can download a parent letter by clicking here.

There is also extra information in the Global Scholars Brochure, available to download by clicking the link.

Below is a video explaining the Global Scholars partnership in greater detail.


Homework due on 2nd of October

This week we have two pieces of homework.

The first is available to download here, it needs you to conduct some research into the countries and cities that we are working with as part of our Global Scholar Project.

The second piece is to go on a spice hunt, what spices do you see at home? What are they used for? What flavour do they add?


As always, our ongoing homework is to learn your multiplication tables and spellings!
