Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Falcons!
Falcons Class is Upper Key Stage Two with just the Year 6 children. This year Falcons will be taught by Miss Williams with the support of Mrs. Hateley (Teaching Assistant) for three mornings a week. This is going to be a very exciting year with lots of fun things planned as well as a great deal of learning too! We have already welcomed a new class member to Falcons - Mrs. Pebbles (our class hamster!) She has proved an absolute hit with the children who love watching her whizz round the classroom in her ball!
Our first theme is World War II where we will look at the history of the war and why it began. We will also be looking at what life was like at this time, especially for children. For our English, we are basing our learning around the book, 'Letters from the Lighthouse,' by Emma Carroll. This is a story about two children who are evacuated to Devon to live in a lighthouse and the secret goings-on that happen there. I love this book and hope the children will too!
In Science we will be looking at space and we are hoping to go to the National Space Centre in Leicester - watch this space!
The children receive merits for reading at home and having their journals signed by an adult. Please encourage your child to read and remind them to bring reading books and journals to school every day as we jot notes and Home Learning in them too. Thank you.
One piece of Maths and one piece of English will be set on Fridays. It is to be returned completed in school by the following Wednesday. Spellings and Mental Maths or Time Tables will also be tested during the week. Handwriting may also be set for those requiring extra practise.

Please make sure that a full kit is kept in school at all times and that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.
