Class 6S (Miss Stokes)

Welcome to the 6S Class Page!

 

Our recipe for a good year:

With a dash of determination, a good measure of teamwork, a tablespoon of enthusiasm, a sprinkle of imagination, a pinch of positivity and a cup of challenge we are certain we can be preparedproductive and prove progress.

 

This week's home learning: 

 

Have a look what we have been up to this week:

Finally, a post-SATs sigh of relief! The children have worked incredibly hard over the past few months so a HUGE congratulations for all their efforts. Looking to the future, we have begun our Isle of Man research this week, which has seen the children using maps to locate famous towns and landmarks (some of which they will be visiting in the very near future!) We enjoyed our visitors who came in for 'Geography Day' on Tuesday; we learnt all about the planning of roads and reducing our carbon footprints. We even learnt some Japanese!
