Miss Hunt's 2017-18 Year 6 Class

Welcome to the Year 6 Class 2017-18 with Miss Hunt, Mrs Dalton-Cole, Miss Thickpenny & Mrs Airey.
 
Check back here regularly to find out what is happening in Year 6 this term.

Welcome to another year at Isleham Primary School! On behalf of myself and the team we hope you have all had a lovely summer and warmly welcome you and your children to Year 6. Our topic this term is ‘World at War’ which will have a History focus. I’m sure the children will enjoy learning about such an interesting topic.

Firstly, thank you so much to so many of you who provided us with shoe boxes and newspapers for our DT project this week. The children have been busy designing their shape sorter toys to share with their buddies and to teach them mathematical shape vocabulary. I really hope this enthusiasm continues all year!

We have a very busy and exciting year ahead of us. This term we will be visiting Soham Village College for the STEM Challenge, Mildenhall College Academy for a music workshop and Duxford Imperial War Museum after half term. The class will be learning the ukulele in school from September - February. To get the most out of this tuition the children will need to play at home and make sure their instrument is in school every Tuesday. The children will be taking on more responsibilities around the school this year, starting with meeting their buddies on 08/9/17 and with House Captain elections on 12/9/17.

Please ensure that outdoor and indoor PE kits are in school every day as we may have weather/timetable changes!  Hair that is longer than shoulder length must be tied up for PE and earrings removed.  Girls also need spare socks for PE when it is cold and they are wearing tights! 

I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities during the coming year to help out in school with special days or on educational visits if you are willing and available. Please contact me if you are available to join us! If you have any points to raise or matters to discuss, I will be available for a quick chat after school most days and I will be more than happy to arrange a meeting to discuss any issues further.

Our class assembly date is: Friday 24th November (2.40pm)

We have lots of exciting plans for Year 6 and I look forward to working with you all again this year.

Thank you for your continued support. Miss Hunt 

We loved meeting our new Reception buddies on their first day of school! Throughout the day we spent time getting to know them, playing in the classroom, lining up for lunch, eating and exploring the playground outside. We are looking forward to teaching our buddies all about our school and sharing may experiences together throughout the year. Welcome to our school buddies!
What a busy house day we had! So many Year 6 children put themselves forward to run for House Captain! We did a fantastic job of making posters, talking to children across the school, writing a manifesto and making a speech to our house teams. Our house day had a British Values theme and the house day elections represented democracy in our school. Well done to everyone who put themselves forward and congratulations to our successful candidates!
Over the summer holidays Miss Hunt challenged us to make a maths game. Miss Hunt was very impressed with our efforts and we had great fun playing the games in class...
We have been busy in the garden and look what we have managed to grow...
We are very excited to be learning the ukulele this term!
