Merlins

Year 6 - Mrs L. Bailey

 

Welcome to Merlins class. My name is Mrs Bailey and I am the class teacher. Working alongside me in Merlins class is Mrs Thomas and Mrs Francis.

For the Autumn Term our topic will be ‘Walk Through Time’ which will focus on the Victorian Era.  We will start the topic by studying the story of Oliver.  We will also be going on a trip to Tyntesfield.   During the term we will learn about what life was like for the Victorians and compare this to life today.  Our Victorian study will focus on themes from the book Oliver: the differences in life between rich and poor; crime and punishment; workhouses and orphanages and what life was like for children.

This term our PE days are Wednesday and Friday however it is useful to keep kits in school at all times as P.E lessons may change due to weather and school commitments. 

Homework will be set at the start of the term and children can hand in their completed homework each week or at the end of the term.  You can support us by listening to your child read regularly and helping them learn their times tables. Children will receive rewards for completed homework and if an adult signs their link book to let us know they have read at home.
