A Message from the Class Teacher, Mr Wood


2017-18 Term 1

Dear Parents and Carers,

The following information outlines Class 6's curriculum coverage for term 1:


We will be studying a simplified version of the classic text: Dracula. Our GPS learning, will cover higher-level punctuation, expanded noun phrases, determiners, synonyms and antonyms. We will also be revising subordinate clauses and adverbials.


We will be revising our place value knowledge before we develop our knowledge of the four operations. We will be consolidating our mental methods for simple problems and apply written methods to more challenging problems. We will also be developing our reasoning skills.


Mrs Fidge will be teaching the children science on a Friday afternoon. The topic for this term is Evolution and Inheritance.

Religious Education:

The religion we will be studying this term is Judaism. We will be learning about Pesach, Yom Kippur and the Seder Plate. We will also be considering our own thoughts about religion and reflecting upon these.


We will be developing our ability to code this term.


Our topic for the term is Ancient Egypt. We will be learning about life in Ancient Egypt, clothing and mummification.

Physical Education:

We will be receiving a specialist PE lesson from Mr Booker on a Monday afternoon. On a Wednesday afternoon, we will be visiting Faversham Swimming Pool. Please ensure correct kit is provided on these days.


Mrs Willmott will be teaching the children music on a Thursday afternoon.

Homework and Spellings:

Homework and spellings are set on a Friday and are due in the following Wednesday. These will be supplied along with a 'week-ahead sheet' so you can see if there are any upcoming events for your diaries.

If you have any questions about your child's learning, then please feel free to speak with me or make an appointment at the school office.

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Wood (Class 6 Teacher) and Ms Sullivan (Class 6 Teaching Assistant)
