Welcome to Class 8 2017/18. The Class Teacher is Miss Waters and there are currently 26 pupils in this class. This class will be supported by Mrs Gilray and Miss Oselton.
My name is Miss Waters and this is my 8th year of teaching. I have been in Year 6 for 6 years and really enjoy working with the older children. On evenings after school I like to swim and play the cornet in Consett Brass Band. I also enjoy spending quality time with my friends and family.
About Class 8
Class 8 will be working really hard this year as the all-important SATs tests approach but we will also have some good fun along the way!
This half term our Literacy work will link to our topic of Living things and their habitats and will be based on the book ‘The Butterfly Lion’ by Michael Morpurgo. We will be writing diary entries, newspaper reports, letters, setting descriptions and lots more different text types. We are also preparing for the SPAG and Reading test paper.
In Maths we are working really hard to improve the speed of our times table recall. We all have a bracelet with the multiplication table that we need to learn written on. We care going wear the bracelet until we have learnt the times table then we get a new one. We are also aiming to improve our problem solving and reasoning skills across all areas of Maths focusing particularly on place value, the four operations and fractions this half term.
We are visiting Consett Academy and Consett library this half term. The new buddies and house captains have been chosen from year 6 and we are looking forward to sorting food for the harvest festival; some of us will be taking this to our local food bank.
