Welcome back to Amethyst Class!
We hope you had a great summer break and are ready to get stuck back into learning and are looking forward to all of the exciting things Year 6 offers.
Your Year 6 class teacher this year is Miss Davis and Mrs Markham will offer classroom support.
P.E. will be taught by Mr. Cox on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon this year, so you will need to bring your PE kit to change at lunchtime.
Mrs. Lihoreau will teach music to the class on a Wednesday afternoon, and Spanish will be taught by Mrs. Sanders on a Tuesday afternoon.
We have got off to a very busy start with our learning here in Amethyst Class! Our Geography topic this half-term is all about rivers and we have been learning all about river processes and physical features. We have visited our local river (the Rhee) and are off to Flatford Mill to undertake some fieldwork. Lots more exciting things are planned - so watch this space!
House Captain elections
We were very proud to announce our new House Captains on Friday 17th September - the eight representatives who will lead the houses of Hurrell, Wale, Greene and Pemberton for 2021-2022. All of Year 6 wrote fantastic speeches to support their nominations. Below are a selection which truly capture the sentiment that all of our candidates demonstrated: the desire to be excellent, supportive role models and the wish to lead their houses to victory! The rest of the school had a very hard time voting as the quality of speeches was incredibly good. Very well done to everyone who took part.
