Year 6-King's Cross
Meet The Teacher
My name is Miss Irvine and I am thrilled to be teaching in Year Six again this year and to finally be able to call my own class Kings Cross after my fondness for Harry Potter! I cannot wait for us to have a fresh look on our learning this year, as there is no doubt it will be tough because we have SATs' to prepare for but we do have lots of exciting themes to make our learning as enjoyable as possible as well as many school visits to give us plenty to look forward to! We are joined in class by Mrs Waller on our journey also as our Learning Support Assistant.
One of my favourite subjects is Art - without a doubt! However saying that, I have found a love for many other subjects since being in Year Six, such as: Science; Maths; and English.
Things to Remember
- PE Kits must be in school at all times. Our PE days are Monday and Friday's. Each Friday, I will send PE Kits home with your child to be washed.
- Water Bottles and Reading Diaries must be in school at all times.
- Homework is issued each Thursday. Homework will be made up of three activities: GPS; Reading; and Arithmetic. This must be returned by the following Thursday.
What are we learning this Half Term?
Let's discover the planet’s frozen kingdoms. Vast wilds and hostile territories; incredibly beautiful, yet often deadly. Take shelter from the elements or fall prey to icy winds and the deepest chill. Trek bravely and valiantly across treacherous terrain to the ends of the Earth, treading deep in snow or being pulled by a team of mighty sled dogs. Be alert, for magnificent mammals roam these lands, sometimes hungry or fresh for a fight. Perhaps a hungry polar bear or an Arctic fox is hunting rodents, as swift as the wind. We will research facts and figures of climate, temperature, habitats and ecosystems, and compose evocative poems about the Northern Lights. Kings Cross will become part of an Antarctic rescue team, braving the elements to rescue terrified passengers from a ship (The Titanic) struck by a deadly iceberg that hides deep beneath the Southern Ocean. While you wrap up warm and settle by the fire, we are just going to be outside and may be some time...
