Welcome to King class. We are a new class in school. We are a group of year 6 pupils who work together every morning for Reading, Writing, SPAG and Maths. We then return to Parks and Tutankamun classes each afternoon for topic and PE lessons. You can find out about our learning on all three Y6 pages.
We voted for our class name and chose Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr as our inspirational person. King class love to read and we are super mathematicians. Our teacher is Mrs McLane and we are supported by Mrs Wardle, Miss Burton and Miss Miles.
On Monday 23rd April, we celebrated St. George's Day. We wore red and white and had a lovely assembly where year 4 retold the story of St. George and the dragon. Mr. Bolton was a very funny dragon!
We learned all about Shakespeare's life and even read a sonnet!
Next, we talked about our Royal Family and the line of succession.
Finally, we discussed the 5 core British Values and made a shield for our class.

Year 6 SATs meetings
Thank you to all parents who attended the SATs meetings this week. We hope you found them useful. We know that although we offered meetings at three different times, some parents were unable to attend due to work and other commitments.
We have sent home a copy of the information given out at each meeting and you can find this on the website too. Please do come and see us if you have any questions or concerns regarding the SATs.
The year 6 team.
This week, we have been calculating the angles inside a shape. Have a go at some of your own.
Have a look at the angles section on mathletics and practice some examples.
Keep practising your spellings at home and test yourself.
Think about Modal verbs - they express possibility - how many can you think of?
I'll start you off...
In English, we have finished our writing inspired by 'Journey to the River Sea' and have moved onto poetry. We have written some lovely poems about the Amazon rainforest. Now, we are learning to perform 'The Jabberwocky' poem by Lewis Carroll. It is very tricky as the words are a mixture of unusual and nonsense words. We have been investigating what they could mean and trying to make sense of the story behind the poem through pictures and actions.
Listen to this version and think about the actions.
What is the story of the Jabberwocky?
What kind of creature is it?
What happens to the Jabberwocky?
Is this a funny/scary/sad/happy poem? Why?
What is your favourite nonsense word in the poem? Why?
What actions have you used?
Can you recite the poem off by heart?
In Maths, we have been converting measures, calculating and solving problems involving measures. Have a look at the poster above and remind yourself of the conversions. You need to know e.g. how many ml in a L. If you are unsure, ask a friend to help you to learn them. We have also been looking at imperial and metric conversions. Remember: 5 miles = 8km. Challenge yourself to calculate distances from miles into kilometres.
