Welcome to Ash Class

Ash Class is taught by Mrs Pontet, ably assisted by Mrs Skinner.

Year 6 is a big year both academically and socially and we have many exciting things to look forward to!

It's been great to welcome you all to Ash Class and year 6!  Please remember.....

  • always have a good reading book in school
  • PE is on Mondays and Thursdays, so always have the correct kit on those days
  • to have your super 6 stationary every day                               and
  • to continue to demonstrate a positive attitude in all you do!



Autumn 2018


This term we will focus much of our learning around our topic - Ancient Greece.

We will be learning about how the Greeks have influenced our lives today as well as how they lived 2000 years ago.  Much of our English will be inspired by our topic, such as the Greek myths and writing non-chronological reports about your chosen area relating to Ancient Greece. Our art will also focus on vases, friezes and other artefacts from this time.

In science, we will be increasing our knowledge and understanding about electricity and then evolution.  We will also be busy with PE, music, computing, RE and other exciting things!

Homework will be set every week.  Usually on a Friday to be handed in on the following Wednesday. 

This will consist of maths, English and sometimes extra topic, science or other subjects.

I expect you to be reading every day and to try to vary the genres, authors and subjects matters of the books you read.

Maths Homework

..... is set every Friday and must be handed in on the following Wednesday.  It should take no longer than 30 minutes as it will usually be practising and reinforcing concepts we have been learning about in class.  If you do find it too tricky, please ask an adult to sign to say you tried and then let me know so that I can help you further. Sometimes you will have a sheet to complete, sometimes an activity on Mathletics and maybe even a game to play with someone at home!
