Minotaur

Welcome to Minotaur Class!

Miss Lembo, Mrs Dawes and the Year 6 pupils. 

 

Welcome to HT5 of Year 6!

This is a very busy but exciting half-term and we have lots to look forward to. Pupils will be focusing on revision for the first three weeks of the topic, in preparation to showcase their skills in the SATs tests (13th-16th May).

The following week (commencing 20th May) we shall be embarking on a fantastic enterprise project called 'Make Five Pounds Grow'. The programme is an excellent opportunity for students to learn about teamwork, problem solving, leadership, management and creativity. They will be tasked with designing a product to make and sell in order to gain as much profit as possible. During the process, they will present their ideas to our own panel of 'dragons', plan out strategies for making and selling their goods, and finally put their sales techniques into action on their own stall at Worksop market!      

 

Each Friday, all pupils will receive homework which will link to the week's learning. Returned homework should be dropped into the 'Homework' drawer in the classroom by the Wednesday of the following week. Homework this half term will be different between pupils depending on their needs. Please see below for a reminder of the weekly homework and spelling list. All pupils in Y6 are expected to read high quality texts daily for pleasure.

 

PE

During this topic, we will be taking part in athletics on a Wednesday afternoon.  It is the responsibility of the pupils to ensure they have their outdoor PE kit in school. Any pupils who do not have their PE kit in school on these days will lose points on Dojo and will be unable to take part in the lesson due to Health and Safety. Earrings should be taken out for PE lessons.
