Snaith Primary School

Miss Howson's Class

Hello!

Welcome

to Miss Howson’s and Mrs Peavoy's Year 6 class page!

Miss Howson teaches Mondays to Thursdays, Mrs Peavoy teaches every Friday.

We are so lucky to have our wonderful teaching assistants to work alongside us this year. Mrs. McEnroe works with us all week and Mrs Radmall also helps us most of the week. Their work is invaluable to us!

As we are Year 6, the final year of primary school, we strive to work really hard whilst also having fun – this is the way, we believe, to fantastic learning and progress!

All children have their own personal learning targets for reading, writing and maths which identify their next steps in learning, as well as personal targets which they set themselves in discussion with the teacher.

These targets are regularly reviewed and updated so that all children can track how brilliantly they are learning and identify what they need to do to get even better!

Our mission statement is: 'It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities'.

Our class target this term is: Everyone is joining up their writing and will be reading fluently by Christmas.

We started this Year with a whole school 'mini topic' which we called 'Magic Mischief and Fairies'. Parents were invited in on the second Friday of the term to see what we had been learning and enjoying. Our topic from then on was 'Scandinavian Scoundrels'.  We  learnt about the Vikings and the incredible impact they had over 1000 years ago. Our class text was 'Beowulf' by Michael Morpurgo - a wonderfully gruesome text. Lots of our creative writing stemmed from this too. We visited the Yorvik Centre within the term to bring our topic to life even more!

This spring term, our topic is 'Mother Earth. This topic will give children the chance to learn all about our planet and how to be more eco-friendly. We will focus on different sources of energy and have a debate about renewable energy sources.  There are plenty of writing opportunities for children including descriptions of how landscapes have changed over time, case studies on the range of natural disasters that have happened in the world and a guide on how to survive using Bear Grylls as an example. We are reading Holes and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, both of which will inspire some fantastic writing!
