Welcome to Class 13's Funky & Fantastic Webpage!
Friday 13th October
Well, we've just arrived back from our first proper visit to Hall Park and I just want to say how proud I am of all of your children! They were super confident in all lessons, asked questions and represented you (and us!) brilliantly!
In In English, we have concentrated on descriptive writing. We imagined what it would be like to leave England on an aeroplane and and described England from the sky! We then compared it to what it would be like to see Nigeria from above. The children really did put a lot of thought into their writing - I was so pleased with what they came up with
In maths this week, we have learnt how to use short multiplication. I was so pleased with how quickly the children picked it up - hope this comes across when they are completing thwie homework this week!
One more week Class 13, stay cool

WOW, WOW, WOW!
What a week we have had! We have spent the whole week frantically getting ready for our Macmillan afternoon today! And what a success it was! To everybody who donated money/cakes/raffle prizes/time, the following message is for you:
Honestly was such a great team effort and was one of my proudest days in teaching so far! I can't thank you all enough and you should all be so so proud of your children - they've seriously blown me away this week!
Keep an eye out on Parentmail to see our final total - I can tell you know though it is seriously good .

Check out the Goldbook Superstars section to find out who made it into our first Goldbook of the year!
I am so proud of how hard the whole of the Class 13 dream team have worked this week! I hope you all have a relaxing weekend, you deserve it this week!
You are all smashing Year 6 at the moment and giving 100% in all lessons, like you all did every day last year....I would expect nothing less!
In English, we have really got stuck into our new class book, The Other Side of Truth. We have had some fantastic discussions and I know we are all completely gripped already! I look forward to reading some of your persuasive writing over the following week!
You've been working equally hard in maths this week and are now all super confident when dealing with numbers with three decimal places
As you all know, Year 6 are holding a Coffee Afternoon for Macmillan Cancer Support on Friday. I cannot thank you all enough for the support you have given us so far, we are so excited for what should be a fabulous afternoon! So get baking if you can and we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible next Friday
Monday 4th September
WELCOME BACK EVERYBODY!
I hope you have all had a wonderful, fun-filled and safe summer. I'm so excited to see you all back at the dream factory. This sums up the current mood perfectly:
Our topic for the Autumn Term is...
We will focus our topic around the book The Other Side of Truth by Beverley Naidoo. It tells the story of 12 year-old Sade and her brother Femi, who flee to Britain from Nigeria. Seen through the eyes of Sade, the novel explores what it means to be classified as 'illegal' and the difficulties which come with being a refugee. We will be using this to write in a variety of text types, which will include examples of persuasive and non-fiction writing. We will also be looking at the landscape of Africa, and will be discussing and comparing the geographical similarities and differences between African countries and the UK.
If you have anything you would like to bring in or share with the class about our Africa topic, please feel free to do so!
Staying in touch...
Please feel free to contact us on our class email address.
This is a great opportunity to share information, pictures and videos of things you may be doing outside of school, and will be a great talking point in class!
