Welcome to Peake class!
My name is Miss Mack and I teach in Year 6 with support from Mrs Lloyd. In Peake we are also lucky enough to have a coach from Get Active teaching PE.
In our class we always aspire to do our best, working in a classroom as a team, where all adults and children alike respect each other. Peake class are hardworking, determined and resilient learners. We aim to work both together and independently, to be the best that we can be, supporting the school vision and upholding our school values. We take pride in ourselves, our work and our learning while having lots of fun along the way!
Term 2's Learning
Welcome to the planet’s coldest lands…. Vast wilds and hostile territories – incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or be pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs.
Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind!
Research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights.
Become part of an Antarctic rescues team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Antarctic Ocean.
So wrap up well everyone and settle be the fire. I’m just going outside and may be sometime….
Year 6 had a visit from St John Ambulance and had a first aid taster lesson. They had great fun putting each other into the recovery position!
We have been learning about the Titanic and the difference between the classes and conditions of travel. We each chose a different room on the ship and are creating a collage to show what the rooms would have looked like. More pictures to follow when we have finished!
Year 6 are given weekly homework in the form of spellings, times tables and daily reading which should be recorded in the reading diary. Spellings and times tables are tested on a Wednesday.
How you can help
Please continue to support your child by encouraging them to read widely and frequently. They should also be discussing their reading with an adult on a regular basis.
Ensuring that your child is fluent with their multiplication tables is also incredibly beneficial for them. There are lots of ways that these facts can be practised; chanting, singing, games, apps, web sites or simply writing them out.
