Welcome to Violet Class! 
 
On this page you will find a snapshot of our learning in Year 6.  Our homework grid (see link below) details the tasks set for the Spring Term, to link with our Natural Disasters topic.  We're looking forward to seeing the brilliant creations the children complete!  
If you have any questions, please drop in to see Miss Williams at the end of the school day, or book an appointment with the office.
Looking forward to an exciting and successful year ahead!  
 
This week.....
In Violet Class, we have been looking at 'The Dreadful Menace' poem, which featured in the BBC 2014 Winter Olympics advert.  We explored figurative writing techniques, such as similes, metaphors, personification, alliteration and onomatopoeia.  We've written some fantastic setting descriptions! 
 
On Tuesday, our class took part in the Safer Internet Day workshops, where they looked at the risks online and how to keep safe.  We have also looked at different types of discrimination and how to show respect for people's differences. 
Homework
Each week, the children in Violet Class have the following for homework:
  • Spellings - the list of words will be in their planners each week.
  • Times tables - see the 'TT Rockstars letter' for the focus times table for each week.  Children are encouraged to go on TT Rockstars as much as possible to improve their speed and confidence with times tables.
  • Maths of the Day - this is a practical activity based on our maths focus area for the week.  The homework will be uploaded to this area each week.  (See below for the link to this week's maths homework, as well as the parent guide.)
  • Homework grid - based on our Spring Term topic of Natural Disasters (see link below for a copy of the grid).  
In addition, SATs study books will be sent home in the near future to help prepare your children.  A note will be added on here when they arrive!
