6G

Welcome to our Class page.

 

We are 6G.

Miss Gibson is our class teacher. There are currently 30 pupils in 6G. During the week we also work with Mrs Ellis, who supports the learning of pupils in our class, as well as teaching us on a Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday afternoon.

 

In Year 6, we work slightly differently to the rest of the school. Our learning in Maths, Reading and Writing is grouped. This is so that we can work together at a level suitability to our ability. This means that we are able to prepare ourselves for important assessments, which take place in May. This year the tests are Monday 13th May to Thursday 16th May 2019.

WWI - 100 Years - Remembrance

This week, pupils have been learning about WWI - specifically the end of WWI in 1918. A link to the Rights Respecting Ambassadors page below will show how the whole school has marked this significant anniversary. 

Pupils in Year 6 have  have been learning about Remembrance and the important jobs women carried out during WWI. They have written a war poem in the style of War Girl by Jesse Pope, shared and discussed the text 'The tomb of the Unknown Soldier', found out about the work of Florence Cordell, as well as writing messages of thanks and remembrance on crosses for fallen soldiers - which were laid at the memorial in Stapleford this afternoon during a short service; attended by members of Year 6, who are some of our Rights Respecting Ambassadors.
