Huntingtower CP AcademyWhere learning comes to life


Lions Class

Welcome to the Lions class webpage.

We have a wonderful year ahead of us. This term our project will based around the Titanic. We will be looking into migration, exploring why and how the Titanic was built, why people wanted to sail on her, the sinking of the ship and what has been learnt since. Our Science work will see the children developing their scientific understanding and exploring light. We shall also be creating collages and photo frames.

Developing writing across the curriculum is a key part of Year 6, so we will be continue to take many opportunities to write in different styles. Reading is key to developing both reading and writing skills, so we would be grateful if you could encourage your child to read at home as regularly as possible. Your child is familiar with our online reading resource, Scholastic Reading Pro, and this is a great way for them to assess their comprehension of the text they are reading. It has been wonderful to see the lexile levels improving. If you require a new username or password, please speak to a member of staff. The following link will take you to the page you need:

Maths and English homework will be given out on a Friday. Both pieces of homework should be returned by the following Wednesday  – your child can bring them in earlier if they wish. If you find your child is struggling with something, please encourage them to speak to an adult. We are always happy to help!

PE kits should be in school on Tuesday and Friday as these are our PE slots, but all week if possible. We will be having our swimming sessions in Term 2 after October half term.

We have a class twitter page @lionsclass. Please follow us and comment on our learning. We regularly update the page with things we have been learning about.

As always, if you have any questions about our learning or anything taking place in school, please contact a member of Lions.

Many thanks,

Mrs Bensley, Mrs Taylor-Summers
