Welcome to Year 6 Topaz!

Our class teachers are Mrs Latham and Miss Parry.

Our Teaching Assistant is Miss Brewerton.

Our HLTA is Mrs Austerfield.

This term we are focusing on the book ‘ Beowulf’ by Michael Morpurgo.  We are looking at a range of genres of writing including diary writing, poetry and adventure stories.  The book has a lot of battles, blood and bravery which the children will enjoy and we will use a range of dramatic techniques to really understand the characters.

In maths we are using all of our reasoning and problem solving skills to solve measurement, ratio and volume, area and perimeter problems.  We are still making sure that our arithmetic skills are working well by having weekly arithmetic tests and times tables so keep practising and working as hard as you are!

Year 6 is a very important year and we are counting down to our SATs tests in May already so keep working hard both at home and at school!
