Welcome to Class 6 2020/21. The Class Teacher is Mr Moore and there are currently 26 pupils in this class. This class is supported by Mrs Gilray and Mrs Hannant.
Hello, my name is Mr Moore and I have been teaching for eight years. This will be my seventh 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
Class 6 will be working really hard this year. We have got lots of new things to learn in all subjects, that will be interesting and fun to learn. We will take our time to settle back in to school and support you as we all feel a bit nervous about coming back to school.
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.
In Maths we are working hard, to improve the speed of our times table recall. We are focusing on problem solving and reasoning in Maths. We still have lots to cover before SATs such as co-ordinates, angles and translation.
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: Gymnastics and athletics. This year PE will be every Tuesday and Friday afternoon. Outdoor PE kit will be needed for the Friday lesson as we will be outside. Until restrictions are eased to allow children to bring bags to school they can come to school wearing their PE kits.
Children have access to Accelerated Reader from school and home and are encouraged to use this site by logging in with their unique passwords.

Lockdown Time Capsule
Hopefully before the end of term we will bury the time capsule in the school grounds. The capsule is part of a project run by Mark Wilkinson Photography. Photographs Mark has received will be printed and placed in the time capsule which will be buried for ten years. To accompany the photographs we are asking the children to write a letter and place it in a sealed envelope. The letter can be about time in lock down, things children did, how they felt, anything they feel relevant. We do want the children to include the date, their age, their class teacher and their first name. But they must not include surnames, phone numbers or their address.
In 2030 we will dig up the capsule and all contents will form part of a history event for our future CJS children.
