Welcome to Cuthbert Year 6
Hello and welcome to Cuthbert class. We are Team Cuthbert . Why? Because we all work together to help us be the best we can be. Whether that means working with a partner, in a group in class, helping out around school with jobs, or carrying out our duties as House Captains and monitors, we know how important it is to work together.
This also means we get to have great fun together – especially when Trev’s involved (although Dobbie and Dipsy have been known to drop in now and again). Additionally, we enjoy learning and behave well during our lessons as we know this will help us to make fantastic progress!
Throughout the year we cover all the basic skills in Maths and English to help us prepare for our SATs in May. This isn’t boring though. We use lots of interesting ways to help everyone learn – by looking, doing or listening – or all three!
As a class we enjoy all lessons, especially Big Maths as we get to dance as well as learn facts we need to know. In English we read every day as we know how important it is. We use Harry Potter a lot as we just LOVE the books. Listening to class novels is also important to us as we enjoy getting to know the characters and finding out what will happen next …
Our writing always allows us to use our imagination – from creating our own Hexapod – think Avatar the movie, to writing instructions for Hogwarts School. This helps us widen our vocabulary too.
All subjects are taught throughout the year, using topics for history (we love the Tudors) and geography, to practical work in science, art, DT and PE. It’s none stop!
Overall, we think Cuthbert is a cool class to be in. Here are some photographs of the things we’ve already done this year …
