Welcome to Owls Class


Owls Class of 2023 – 2024!

Welcome to Owls class, we are children in year 6 and we are finally at the top of the school! We are taught by Mrs Siddiqui, Mrs Hammond, Mrs Bird and Ms Axon. In Year 6, we work very closely as a team to create an exciting broad curriculum. When planning lessons, we use the children’s previous knowledge, experiences and interests to motivate, challenge and engage them. This is where you will find all the information you need to know about what we will be doing in Year 6 this year. There is so much to look forward to this year, including: being stretched and challenged, an exciting curriculum, trips and an end of year production. Our last year at Charing Primary is going to be brilliant!

Remember it’s really important to be at school every day, on time and ready to learn.

Our systems

PE: Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday, remember to wear your PE kit on these days.

Spelling: We are taught spellings every week, these will be tested every Wednesday. Remember to bring your spelling book into school on this day.

Reading: Children are expected to read most days at home for a good length of time to support their daily reading in school. It is impossible to overstate how incredibly important reading is. It builds vocabulary, embeds language and phrasing in our minds, helps our understanding of the world around us; it inspires us and moves us and helps us to grow. Plentiful and challenging reading makes an enormous difference to us in English lessons but also far beyond – even in our digital world, reading is still the key way that knowledge is passed on. 

Homework: You can find homework on our class page. Please follow the link to our school website and visit our class page to complete your tasks   

Wider Curriculum: Our learning is mainly taught discretely as we are scientists, historians, artists, geographers. We have chances not only to learn and create but to shape what we are taught through bringing our own interests into our school subjects.

Here is a brief outline of our wider learning.
