Welcome to Class 6 2017/18. The Class Teacher is Mr Moore and there are currently 21 pupils in this class. This class is supported by Mrs Hird.
Hello, my name is Mr Moore and I have been teaching for five years. This will be my fourth 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 dog, George and cycling.
About Class 6
I am really looking forward to the new year and getting to know the class. There are 21 children in the class and this hopefully allow me to work closely with all of the children. Mrs Hird will work with me and the class on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. She will also teach the class geography and ICT on Thursday afternoon.
This term, we will be reading the Magic Faraway tree. This book will take the children to magical lands and will inspire them to write interesting and create work. We will continue to focus on developing their grammar and spelling skills throughout the year. We are also introducing the Accelerated Reader scheme, which not only encourages children to read a variety of books, also allows us to see how their reading is progressing.
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: Early Islamic Civilisation – we will look at the contributions this empire made to modern day live, such as the number system we use today.
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
P.E. – is every Tuesday and Wednesday. Children should bring their kit to school on Monday and take it home at the end of the week. Wednesday is an outdoor session, so appropriate clothing (long sleeve tops and jogging bottoms) should be provided.
