Class Teacher - Miss S Nichols

Welcome to the Dolphins class.

Hello and welcome to Y6 Dolphins class! This page will give you all the information you need about what is happening in our class, such as PE days, homework, trips, events and the areas that we will be learning about. We cannot wait to have you all back in the classroom! 

The overall theme for our learning in term 1 will be ‘Coastlines’. We will learn about the 1953 floods in history and our first English unit will revolve around the Marcus Sedgwick text, Foodland (surviving in a devastated world). We will also be creating our own model sea defences as part of our design and technology lessons. In geography, we will be learning about how we can protect our environment and our science work will focus on forces. Our computing lessons will focus on networking and in RE we will be learning about the importance of the Qur’an to Muslims. 

PE days – These will be Tuesdays and Thursdays this term. Thursday’s session will be swimming for Dolphins for the whole of Term 1. Children will be leaving school at 9.30 am and returning to school in time for lunch. Please provide appropriate swim wear, a towel and goggles if you wish to. Children may bring a snack and a drink. Please no aerosols due to children who suffer with asthma. As usual, on Tuesday’s please come to school in your PE kit on, with earrings removed, thank you! 

Homework – This will be set on the websites MyMaths and A new task will be set on each site every Sunday evening and needs to be completed by the following Sunday. As usual, please keep reading every day (we have lots of books in the classroom for you to take home as you wish) and practicing times tables to earn Prove-it awards. We will still have access to TT rock stars to help you practice these. Reminders of your logins for all these sites will be sent home in the first week – please keep them in a safe place. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to Miss Nichols or Mrs Carpenter and we will be happy to help. We are looking forward to yet another brilliant year with you all!
