Learning and Achieving Together


Welcome to Year 6 and Team Turquoise!

 Your Classteachers are Mrs Vipond and Mrs Holman.

Your teaching assistant is Mrs Pullen and Miss Lynas.



We have had a very busy week in Turquoise Class! We have been learning about algebra in Maths - how to collect like terms, express a sequence algebraically and how to substitute values into an algebraic equation. In English, we finished our rainforest creature reports and wrote an autobiographical story about being lost in the rainforest. We have also worked really hard to finish our rainforest cushions - see the pictures below!


Next term, we will be starting our new topics of 'The Aztecs and 'The Human Body!' 


We hope you have a happy and restful break and we look forward to seeing you in the Summer Term.


Congratulations to this Week's Stars and Top Ten Rockers!
