Welcome to Class 6 2019/20. The Class Teacher is Mr Moore and there are currently 29 pupils in this class. This class is supported by Miss Shield.
Hello, my name is Mr Moore and I have been teaching for seven years. This will be my sixth year at Consett Junior School. I have worked in Year 5 every year I have been here and enjoy the day to day challenges of helping children learn new skills and knowledge.
At the weekends, I enjoy relaxing by going for walks with my wife, son and dog, George and cycling.
About Class 6
I am really looking forward to the new year and getting to know the class. There are 29 children in the class and this will allow me to work closely with all of the children. Mrs Shield will work with me and the class all week.
This year in Literacy, we will be looking at a wide range of resources to inspire our writing. This will range from videos, songs, short stories and poems. We will continue to learn new spelling rules and practise punctuation and grammar rules.
Numeracy will continue to challenge the children with the focus moving on from the four main operations to applying them to real life situations and puzzles. This year will also see an increase in the amount of fraction work the children are expected to do and understand. The times tables will still be a key part of their learning and the ability to understand the inverse number facts.
Our topics for this term are:
Science: space – we will be looking at the solar system, the moon, sun and earth and the relationships that they have with each other.
History: Vikings – we look at the Vikings, how they arrived in this country, why they came and how they have influenced modern day Britain.
Art : Pop art and fashion from the 1960’s
Geography: Mountains – we will look at how they are classified, where they are, how they affect the environment and weather.
ICT – E – Safety
R.E. – Sikhism
PE: Tag Rugby and OAA. This year PE will be every Monday and Friday afternoon. For this half term, outdoor PE kit will be needed for both sessions.
