Welcome to Class 6 


Class 6 are a friendly bunch of creative and thoughtful children who love to learn. Our teacher is Mrs Cross and our teaching assistant is Mrs Eaves. We enjoy lots of fantastic learning experiences and every day our skills are improving! We do daily lessons in Maths, English and Phonics and have lots of opportunities to enhance and enrich our learning in out Continuous Provision areas. We also enjoy investigating a wide range of important questions such as:

Which dinosaur left their footprints at Ladycross?

How can we keep the Three Little Pigs safe?

What do we know about Robin Hood? Was he real, or just a story?

On our webpage you will find updates on our learning and important information. This will also be communicated on Class Dojo where regular updates will be shared, so please make sure you are connected. You can see an overview of our learning throughout the year here.

We had so much fun at the beginning of this topic with our own “Fireworks Day” We used science to make “fizzing fireworks”, created amazing artwork and even made some of our very own “chocolate sparklers” to eat during the fireworks display!
