On behalf of the children and staff welcome to our home page. My name is Mr Smith and it my honour to be the Year 6 class teacher here at Christ the King. Together with Miss Din and Mr Riley it is our job to ensure that your child learns in a fun, creative and safe environment. See below to see some examples of the shenanigans we’ve been up to!
This term we will begin our preparation for the statutory tests (SATs) that will take place in May. In addition to our exciting and vibrant curriculum we will be providing a range of support for your child both during and after school. SATs booster classes will take place every Monday and Thursday after school from 3.15pm-4.15pm. Both group and one-to-one interventions will take place throughout the school day to ensure that your child is confident and relaxed in a test environment.
Our most recent adventure saw Year 6 travel (eventually) to the city of York. It was here that we braved almost certain peril within the walls of England’s most deadly and sinister tour attraction. As part of our literacy we were tasked with creating a new leaflet for this attraction. Children were tortured, accused of spying and witchcraft. Staff did not get of easily either as, tragically, Miss Din was burned at the stake. From there we made our way back in time to the Yorvik Centre; it was here that Year 6 came face to face (not literally) with the largest Viking poo! To complete the day, we made our way up Clifford’s Tower and watched the sun set over the city. Magic!!
Watch out Ussain Bolt! Year 6 took the world of athletics by storm in November proudly representing our school at a local indoor athletics event. They ran, they jumped and they threw their way to victory. Mr Smith lost his voice within 10 seconds of cheering on the class; judging by the happy look on his face you could tell he was proud of his class.
Fridays are always a fun time in Year 6 as we randomly select an event to celebrate. The beginning of the year saw Year 6 celebrate ‘International Hobbit Day’ and since then we have a had: a comedy club, a vegetable sculpture competition; a Batman themed day (much to Mr Smith’s delight) and we had a ‘Random Act of Kindness Day’ which saw us meet and become friends with residents at a local care home.
P.E. takes place every Thursday and children are required to wear the correct school P.E. kit. Thursday’s SATs booster classes are mandatory as they provide much needed support for your children.
