Class 6

Welcome to Amethyst Class!

This is our last year at St Michael's and we know it is going to be one full of special memories.

As we take the final steps in our primary educational journey, we will have our teacher, Miss Williams-Moore and teaching assistant, Mrs Wheeler, by our sides, guiding us and providing us with a whole range of brilliant learning opportunities along the way.

We have some fabulous texts as part of our Literacy Tree scheme. These will provide us with lots of writing opportunities, producing both fiction and non-fiction pieces; many of the books will make links to other parts of the curriculum particularly our history units such as the Battle of Britain and Windrush. Our maths this year will focus on consolidating and deepening our understanding of key mathematical concepts as well as the introduction of some new topics such as ratio and algebra. Taking inspiration from some of the world's most renowned scientists such as Darwin, Edison and Volta, we will be investigating light, electricity, micro-organisms, evolution and the circulatory system.
Not forgetting our school residential trip where we get the chance to test ourselves and encourage each other as we take part in various challenging and adrenaline inducing activities. 

This along with all of our other topics is bound to keep our brains busy throughout the year. However, we will also find time to continue to grow as proud representatives of the St Michael’s community. We will have the opportunity to take on roles such as House Captains, Reading Ambassadors, Anti-bullying Ambassadors and buddies to our new Reception class. 

Leading up to our transition to secondary school, we will participate in various lessons, workshops and activities that will help to prepare us for the next stage of our education. As the year draws to a final close, we will be excited to put on our end of year production which we are sure will be a highlight of our time at St Michael's.
