Miss Maxwell's Class

Welcome to Class 6

This half term our topic is

'Wilmslow's Got Talent!'


In English we will be writing our own information book inspired by our visitors.  We will be finding ways of making our sentences more exciting using adverbs, conjunctions and adjectives. We will be developing our Phonics skills in our daily Letters and Sounds sessions and learning spelling rules to help further improve our writing.

In Maths the children will be continuing to improve their mental maths skills, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing at speed. We will also be working with money to find totals and give change. Please take every opportunity at home to help your child practice their 2s, 3s, 5s and 10s!

 In our topic lessons, we will be learning all about The Plague and The Great Fire of London - looking at what happened, how it started and why it spread so quickly. We will become news reporters, reporting on the events as if it happened today!

 In Science, we will be looking at humans and animals. We are looking at how we can stay healthy and how animals look after their young.

In Design and Technology this half term we will be designing our own emergency vehicles, looking at how we can attach moving wheels to them and evaluating the end product.




  • Arithmetic, Comprehension homework and spellings will be given out on a Friday and are to be handed back in by the following Wednesday. Spellings will be tested on a Wednesday.
  • Please can all children have their reading books in school every day. You can help your child by listening to them read at home every night and then writing a comment in their green reading diary. They can change their books whenever they have finished them and can take a couple at a time if they are eager to do so.
  • We have PE on Monday outside and Tuesday inside so please make sure you have a PE kit in school, including pumps and children with long hair should have it tied up. The children are very welcome to bring a tracksuit to wear for outdoor PE now that the weather is getting colder.


If you have a problem no matter how big or small please come and visit us after school and we will always be willing to help.
