Welcome to Class 14
Class teacher - Mrs Pearson
Hello and welcome to our class page. This page will display what happens in school on a daily basis and hopefully give you an opportunity to capture some memories of your child's last year in primary school! As always, if there is anything we can help you with, please don't hesitate to come and see us.
Mrs Pearson and Mr Hughes
We have been working on attacking and defending games in PE this half term. After mastering Tag Rugby in the last few weeks, we turned our attention to football. Li, Tristan and Harrison planned our warm up, skills and drills session before Mrs Baron stepped into Mr Hughes' shoes and continued with the rest of the session. The children had a great time, setting up mini-games and increasing their confidence with ball control.
Watch out - the Fantastic Book Awards are about!
Our Year 6 children welcomed Sally-Anne, from the school library service, into our classroom to take part in an amazing workshop. The aim of the session was to allow the children to explore books which they might not have chosen themselves. It was an hour of competitive fun as the children looked at different book covers and decided which appealed to them, read blurbs and took part in a 'Which Book is it?' challenge followed by a game about different characters the children might have encountered in their reading. It was a fantastic afternoon and clear to see that class 14 really love books (including Mrs Pearson, who also got rather competitive at times 😉).
As you will probably know, Mrs Pearson loves science and takes us to the Phiz Lab any chance she gets. Here we are investigating what factors would affect the size the balloon would inflate to. Some of us went a little too far and popped our balloons.
Some of our year 6 children had a training session with Sarah, our Secondary School sports link teacher. They learnt how to play games with the younger children in school. After their training, they practised their communication, organisation and leadership skills to train the rest of year 6. They had lots of fun but soon realised how hard it is to be a teacher!
During this week's maths lessons, we have been exploring shape. In the photos, we are sorting shapes into different categories to see if our friends can identify how we have sorted them.
In year 6, maths and English are taught in two sets. The children are taught by Mrs Baron or Mrs Pearson, supported by Mrs Birbeck and Mr Hughes. Here we are in our groups.
