Welcome to Class 6

A very warm welcome to Class 6!

Class 6 is jam-packed full with learning, fun and opportunities to shine! Our class page will keep you up-to-date with the exciting activities and learning we get up to this year.

At times, you will need the determination to work hard and focus, pushing yourself to meet your own goals, but you will also have a lot of fun along the way as we find out more about ourselves and our ambitions for the future. This is your final year at St. John’s, so make the most of every moment!


In the classroom this year, there is:

Class Teacher – Miss Walsh
PPA Teacher & Group Support – Mr Giles
Classroom Support – Mrs Farrow


Home Learning Expectations

In Class 6, we encourage you to read as often as possible (minimum of 3x per week) and to develop a love of reading as this will help you to build a strong foundation for learning when you go to secondary school and for later life. Year 6 is the year to push the boundaries with reading and so we’ll encourage you to engage with new authors, read new genres, and explore different text-types (novels, comics, diaries, newspapers, websites).
We kindly ask adults at home to continue to encourage regular reading. 


P.E Days

Our P.E days are: Wednesday (Outdoor) and Friday (Indoor). You need to keep your indoor kits in school and bring your outdoor kits with you in a bag on a Wednesday.
 Information regarding kit can be found under the ‘News’ section of the main website.

Thank you

Miss Walsh

Stanah - Field Study Visit (19.10.23)


We visited Stanah Country Park on Thursday (19th October) - the first of our half-termly visits this year. We went for a little wander and looked for signs of autumn. Over the year, we will revisit the park to observe seasonal changes.
 


Library (10.10.23)


We thoroughly enjoyed our first of this years' visits to Blackpool Central Library. One of the librarians shared the story 'A Christmas Carol' with us to link in with our 'Victorian' topic. We then had the opportunity to choose our first library book of the year!


Oxygen Arts Black British Ballet Project Performance (6.10.23)


Class 5 and 6 were invited along to Blackpool Central Library to watch the ballet performance 'Island Movements: An epic tale of a Windrush family' performed by Oxygen Arts Black British Ballet Project. The piece told the story of a young soldier in WW2, following him and his family through their life in the UK. The children also had the opportunity to engage in a Q&A with the dancers.


School Council Ballot (21.09.23)


Over the last week, children across school have been putting themselves forward for the position of 'school council representative'. The children had to plan and deliver a speech to their class about what changes they would implement as a representative and why they consider themselves a good person for the role.
Our Year 6 prefects were then put to work as election observers as part of our annual school council ballot. Each class was invited down to the school hall to vote for their favourite candidate. Here are some photos from the Year 6 ballot.
 


September - First Week Back


What a fantastic first week back had in Class 6! We've delved straight into our first topic of the year: 'The Victorians' and have enjoyed lots of practical, hands-on learning both in and out of the classroom. We also created some self-portraits in the style of Tim Burton for a classroom display.
