Welcome to Class 6
Our teachers are Roanne (Mon-Weds) and Leonnie (Weds-Fri) and our team includes Joanne, Zara and Christine. We love music and singing in our class! We are all good friends and enjoying getting outside to learn. This half term we will be following the book ‘Billionaire Boy’ by David Walliams. Jo has very cleverly created a word and symbols version for us to enjoy. The book follows the main character Joe Spud whose dad makes money from a new toilet roll! He becomes a billionaire! But Joe discovers that all he really wants is time with his dad and a true friend. We will be exploring lots of themes in the book as well as some of the special celebrations and festivals coming up like Bonfire Night, Remembrance Day and of course Christmas!
This week we been exploring the characters in our new story Billionaire Boy. We have read some of the book and watched parts of the film.
In English we have been matching character names, writing about key features of a book and creating character profiles.
We have looked at the Bonfire Night celebration and explored the character of Guy Fawkes in History as well as creating bonfire and firework pictures in Art.
In Maths we have been working hard on recognising different coins. Counting pennies and adding up small amounts. Role playing money games and using our times tables to count 2p, 5p and 10p.
We can’t wait to see what happens next in our story! (it makes us giggle a lot!)
Class Update 20/11/2020
We have had a busy couple of weeks learning more about the settings in our story and the events. Our story has tied in well with Anti-bullying week and we discussed how we can be a good friend and who we can talk to if we are worried.
We had a great time celebrating Children in Need, dressing up, playing games and decorating Pudsey biscuits.
In Maths we have continued to learn about money and budgeting. We will be moving onto learning about time.
Our class assembly on Diwali went really well and we all enjoyed acting out the story of Rama and Sita. We can’t wait for our Christmas performance!
Class Update 01/11/2020
Something very exciting has happened in our playground…!! A sleigh has been found crashed! We became investigators looking for clues about who had crashed it, where it had come from and what had happened.
Over the next couple of weeks we will continue to investigate the sleigh as well as beginning to celebrate Christmas! In Maths we are continuing to look at time and money as well as investigating 3D shaped presents.
We can’t wait to share our Christmas play!
