Mablethorpe Primary Academy


Class Teacher - Ms K Dixon

Welcome to the Whales class.

Hello and welcome to Year 6 Dolphins and Whales classes! 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 look forward to building on all of your brilliant learning as we move into term 5!

In history, we will be starting a new topic learning all about the fascinating people of Ancient Maya and comparing their society and achievements with those of the Vikings. Our geography lessons will link to this as we investigate the climate of Ancient Maya and how this impacted on the lives of the people there. Our English leaning will include non-fiction as we study texts about Mayan society, and fantasy as we study the book ‘Middle world’, the first part of the ‘Jaguar Stones’ series. In science, we will be learning all about life cycles and plant and animal reproduction. Please see our overview document for more details about what we will be learning in all of our curriculum subjects.

PE will continue to take place on a Monday and a Tuesday for Dolphins and Whales are Wednesday and a Thursday. Same as last term for us! Please come to school in your PE kit and leave earrings at home on both of those days.

Homework will continue to be set on MyMaths weekly. Please keep reading every day (we have lots of books in the classroom for you to take home!) and earning lots of coins on TT rock stars! If you need reminders of any of your login details, please speak to Miss Nichols or Miss Dixon.

SATS Information

SATs will be taking place during week 4 of Term 5. Your children are extremely familiar with the format of SATs and have completed a range of practice papers during this academic year. A free breakfast will be provided for every pupil on the days when SATs will be taking place. Dates will be sent out nearer the time.

Miss Nichols, Miss Dixon, Mrs Carpenter and Mrs James wish you all a very happy Easter!
