Welcome to Ash Class

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

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

Autumn 2017

Welcome back!

This term we will be discovering if we would have chosen to live in Athens or Sparta based on what we learn about life in Ancient Greece.  This will begin with our trip to the British Museum on Friday 15th September.

We will also be creating artwork around this theme.

In English we will be exploring Shakespeares 'A Midsummer Nights Dream' as well as reading a variety of other texts and writing in response to them.

We will build on our scientific knowledge of electrical circuits, learn more about Islam, develop our control, co-ordination and skills in PE and of course sing and compose in music lessons!

Always remember:

  • Super Six (pen, pencil, sharpener, rubber, scissors and glue stick)
  • Appropriate reading book
  • PE kit on Mondays and Tuesdays
  • To be kind and smile smiley


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!
