Class SH - Miss Herdman

Miss Herdman is a Year 6 teacher and leading music at the school. She is passionate about developing children's ability to express themselves especially through English and the arts. She has three children and a cat who keep her busy. 

What is happening in Year 6?

PE is every Monday and Friday. Please remember to bring in your outdoor PE kit.

Homework is set every Thursday and is due in on the following Tuesday.

This term, spellings are taught at a faster pace with children revisting all spelling rules every couple of days, so they wont necessarily be coming home with a list of words each week, but instead a spelling rule to practise.

Our topic this half term is Money Spinners. The childrne will be designing, creating and selling a product. They will learn about business, enterprise and profit margins ( hopefully ). 

In English, we are studying the book Skellig. Our reading and writing will tie into this. Please do not let the children get their own copy of the book and 'read ahead' as a lot of the impact with this topic is gained from prediction and the tension that builds up as we study it together in class. 

In science, we will be learning all about the Human Body. We learn about the skeleton, major body organs and systems. We also learn about keeping healthy and changes to our bodies as we progress through the human life cycle. 

In art, we are studying how the human body has been represented through the years, looking at a variety of artists who are famous for this. This ties in with our science and children will have the opportunities to paint in the style of the artists studied and also to develop their own unique style of art in which they can represent the human body. 

As we approach SATs, obviously our focus is geared on filling any gaps that the children have in their knowledge and English and maths are the priority. It is just another week. Our aim is to create no added pressure - we are already so proud of the childrens' hard work this year and know that they will do their best - which is all we ever want for them.
