Year 6: Mr McCarthy - CS Lewis

Welcome to CS Lewis Class

 

Welcome to our Year 6 class full of hard working children who love to learn and keep growing as people. Mr McCarthy is our teacher and our teaching assistant is Mrs Read. Together as a group, we make up CS Lewis class. 

 

CS Lewis is a brilliant author and I love the themes he writes about in his books. Themes of adventure, using your imagination, but also of forgiveness and putting others before yourself.

 

You may already know that I'm a big Forest fan and enjoy watching them most weekends at The City Ground. I also enjoy watching many other sports and spending time with my little girl, who is growing up far too quickly!

The Dovedale £1 Challenge!

Today we launched our Year 6 project: Grow £1.  Staff and children alike are so excited. The children have thought of some wonderful ideas already!  We wish everyone lots of luck and can't wait to hear how your fundraising is progressing!

Please find the powerpoint we shared with the children and the letter to parents in the section below.

HOME LEARNING

 

If you find yourself at home over the next few weeks and are well enough, please try to:

 

  • Read daily and record it in your planner (20 minutes at least).
  • Spending 30 minutes on TT Rockstars.
  • Practise the statutory spellings for Years 5 & 6 - can you use them accurately in sentences? Can you use a dictionary to find the definitions?
  • Complete some of the activities on the home learning pages

 

Also, please check here for daily tasks that we will put on for you too!

Try to keep up with your school work and record it in your homework books.

Spellings

 

Below you'll find all the spelling lists for the weekly spellings. These will be set on a Friday and will be tested the following Friday

 

By the end of Year 6 the children are also expected to know most of the words from a Y5/6 word list. Lots of these words will come up through weekly spelling tests, but we would like children to spend time practising a set of these words each term. The different list for each term are in the spelling documents list. They won't be tested every week, but we will re-visit them a few times a term.

 

Please check back on Fridays for the weekly spellings. I have removed the Autumn spellings to avoid long lists! Spellings are also stuck in the childrens' diaries.
