Welcome to the 6KF class page!

Our environment

6KF have settled in brilliantly to year 6 and their new classroom. We have been focussing on what makes the Thoresby 'machine' work. We have explored lots of different skills that make us successful and are getting better at these every single day! laugh

Sping Term 2017

  Spring Literacy

In Literacy this term we will be working on some letter writing using powerful word choices and challenging punctuation. We are continuing to use our WWII topic and our class texts as a springboard for our classwork. Running alongside our writing will be our spellings, grammar and punctuation work.

Spring Maths

We are kicking off the half term with some division work in maths and will be focussing heavily on problem solving. We will also be covering fractions and decimals this term. We will be un-picking problems; working out what skills we will need to solve them and deciding which method is best to use.

Topic - Can you tell the 'Hull' story?

WE JUST CAN'T GET ENOUGH OF WWII!

This term we are delving even deeper into the topic and exploring The Hull Blitz!

What can you find out about the surrounding area?

During our topic we will be looking at some of the defining moments of our city's history with a primary focus on Hull during the Second World War. We will learn about the impact the war had on the city and find out about individuals' stories throughout that time. Our topic work will have a historical and geographical focus with many 'Ask It' opportunities.

Our Class Text and reading text

Our class text

Our class text this term is the brilliant ‘Kensuke's Kingdom' by Micheal Morpurgo. We're excited to dive into this book - our only problem is we're not sure we'll be able to put it down! Here's a taster...

"I heard the wind above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven't got your safety harness on, you haven't got your life jacket on. You shouldn't be doing this.....I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream"Our reading journey text

The text that we are using for our reading journey is 'Pig Heart Boy' by Malorie Blackman. This is a fantastic book about the challenges one thirteen-year-old faces.

Each child has their own copy to bring home and use in school - see how much they can tell you about Cameron and his situation.

So far we are GRIPPED!

 

Science

This term we will be learning  about light and electricity and incorporating this into our DT and topic work.
