Luther King Class
Welcome to Luther King’s class page. I am Mrs Preston and I am looking forward to teaching year 6 this year. Donna is our class TA and in the mornings we are lucky to have Mrs Garofalo (literacy) and Mr Weston (maths and reading) teaching small groups in the Bosco room.
In Year 6 we have homework in maths and literacy every day and it is important for children to read, practise their times tables and spellings every day as well.
We have PE on a Friday afternoon and will be having our music lessons on a Tuesday afternoon. Starting from week 2, we will also be having Healthy Eating workshops, where the children will be practising cooking in groups in our Creative Room.
In Literacy, we are starting off the year working with the book ‘How to Train my Dragon: How to twist a dragon’s tail’, and we will be using it to do action writing as well as basing non-chronological reports on it. Or focus in Maths will be to apply or knowledge to multi-step word problems and making sure that we are accurate in our answers by using checking strategies.
Our first topic in RE is about the’ Domestic Church – God’s unconditional love’ followed by learning about ‘Vocation – The Priesthood & Religious Life’ where we are hoping to interview Father Graham to find out more about being a priest.
In Science we will be learning about classifying living things. We will also be learning about the Alps in Geography and focussing on being Internet Smart in computing. In Art we will be using nature to inspire or drawing and sculpting and in PSHE we will not only learn about Healthy Eating but also improve or skills in working together in groups and how to behave in difficult situations.
If you have any questions or any concerns, please come and speak to me. I am looking forward to a good year!
