Class van Gogh (Year 6) –

Update Thursday 2nd April 


Hi Year 6,

Hope you're all keeping safe and well in these uncertain times.

It has been lovely to hear from some of you by email. Please drop me an email (year6 to let me know what you're up getting up to  - it's time to get creative in the lock down. I've decided to take up knitting!  Send me some photos of what you are getting up to over the Easter break and I'll post them on the class web page!

Now that the Easter break has 'officially' started for Crockenhill Primary School both Mrs Kimble and myself wish you well, You have all worked hard throughout the spring term and over the last eight days of school closure we have missed listening to your chatter and  seeing your smiling faces!

We will not be posting any further home learning (or puzzles) until Thursdau 16th April ( the day we would have been returning to school)

Welcome to Van Gogh Class 2019-20


Our teacher is Mrs Simber and our TA is Mrs Everest, 

Mrs Kimble also teaches the class every Wednesday. 


Our creative curriculum topic for the Spring term is 'Let there be Light' with our main focus being the Victorians (History).  Due to following a creative curriculum, wherever possible, all subjects will be linked to this topic, for example our science focus is 'Light' and  links very well to the topic. However RE will be taught discreetly and we will be investigating the key question 'What difference does it make to believe in harmlessness (Ahimsa),

the generosity of God (Grace) and community (Ummah) ?

This term, we are basing our English learning around the book, 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. We will also be focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and continuing to practise use of different reading skills in preparation for the upcoming SATs.

For more information on our curriculum, please see the parent overview and the curriculum map attached below.


Maths and English homework will to be set on a weekly basis along with the challenge homework for the half term.


Year 5/6 spellings lists have been given out and children will also be given weekly spellings to learn (see termly spelling lists attached below)
