Welcome to Minotaur class

We are the Year 6 pupils


Blood Heart

In English we will be examining, innovating and writing suspense and adventure stories. Our SPaG sessions will support our writing and will look at types of adverbs, relative clauses, active and passive voice, fronted adverbials, uses of commas, hyphenated words, types of clauses, tenses and different sentence types. Having thoroughly enjoyed reading Holes during the last two topics, we will be moving on to a new novel which links to our topic. Pig Heart Boy is a fantastic read and we're sure you will be hooked by this powerful story!


In Maths our learning will revolve around geometry, time and statistics. We will also continue with our weekly reasoning sessions to develop skills needed to unpick and tackle multi-step word problems. 


Our  PE days this half-term will be Wednesdays (Rugby with a professional coach) and Thursday (games with Mr Roberts). Please ensure PE kits are in school on these days.


We are pleased to see that the pupils are completing their SATs reading booster booklets well and it is brilliant to see their progression. These will be marked in school and returned to pupils when the next section is set for homework. If you are unsure of your homework for the week, please see the Homework section on our class page.
