Welcome to Willow Class
Our topics this year are all based on the main theme of'Chocomania'
Autumn we looked at 'The Amazing Aztecs'.
In Spring we will be focussing on 'Trading Places'.
Summer term will be based on 'Delicious Discoveries'.
Willow class thoroughly enjoyed their trip to Cadbury World last term and learned even more about the Aztecs along with finding out all about what life was like in Skelmersdale many years ago. We are going to be looking at inventors from around the world and in the past- we may even have a go ourselves at a bit of chocolate bar inventing (yum yum!).
We have lots more exciting things to look forward to this term with sportsday, the show and our transition trips to high school to name a few. We are also looking forward to our class governor coming into class to teach us all about the heart and circulation, we consider ourselves very lucky to have such a brilliant class governor who wants to help us with our learning and gives us so much of her time.
In PE this term we are hoping to beat the weather and get out there for some invasion games, outdoor learning and athletics, plus the SHARES PE team will also deliver sessions teaching dance and invasion games.
Let's not forget the SATs are quickly approaching and the children may not be looking forward to the tests but I'm sure they will be looking forward to SATs breakfast. I am so proud of the hard work that the children have put in so far including turning up for boosters on a Saturday, I'm sure they will continue on this positive path towards success as they are an amazing class.
Remember to keep checking the parent app and text messages for important dates and information and if you want to check any letters that have been emailed you will also find them on this website.
As this is the childrens' last year at Brookfield Park Primary School we want to make this the best year ever with lots of exciting things and super learning opportunities being provided throughout each term, therefore we need to make sure attendance is the best it can be so that they do not miss anything!
Children continue to receive weekly spellings every Monday ready for a test every Friday; so remember to have all homework learnt and completed by Fridays and use your weekends to READ, READ and READ! Remember children in year 6 are expected to read either to someone or independently as often as possible, this has become even more important now as there is so much emphasis in this new curriculum on vocabulary development, so remember to encourage your child to ask you about any new vocabulary they come across. In English and Mathematics children continue to gain independence in their learning by taking ownership of what they need to do to improve, setting their own targets and making appropriate choices when necessary about the work they do in class.
The house system is up and running and working brilliantly throughout school. We have some very competitive houses in year 6 which was proved by the fantastic response to the 'Copper Chase Challenge'. Our team captains continue to rise to the challenge of running their houses and their roles within that.
There are 24 brilliant, hardworking children in year 6 who continue to be great role models and looking towards high school will be the best year 7's in Skelmersdale. We are always complimented from the high schools about the children we send to them and I'm sure these children will continue to make us proud. I wish them every bit of luck and success as we work towards our SATs and towards their next very exciting steps in their school careers. Willow class what a fantastic year 6 you have been so far, I know you will all keep it up for the rest of the year and beyond.
