Meet The Team
This year, we have three classes within the Year 6 team. Our teachers are: Mr Copestake (6CO), who is a new addition to the Maple Court family, Mrs Cunningham (6CU) and Miss Marshall (6M). Supporting the Year 6 team, we are extremely lucky to have Mrs Walters, Mrs Reeves and Mr Taylor.
What We Will Be Learning In Year 6
In the Autumn term, we will be learning all about the Industrial Revolution and how our lives have changed significantly as technology has developed. In Design Technology, we will be designing and making our very own electronic device!
In the Spring term, our topic will be Frozen Kingdom where we will be exploring some of the world’s coldest planets! We will be making our own insulated shelter and exploring how people live.
In the Summer term, our topic will be Let Me Entertain You! We will be exploring how people in the 20th and 21st Century spend their leisure time. Most importantly, this term we will be preparing for our end of year Prom. As part of our Design Technology project, we will be designing and baking our own Prom celebration cake!
Year 6 are given homework every Monday that can always be used in our lessons to help us; we also turn our many splendid ideas into imaginary creations in our topic homework, including designing our own wallpaper, making Victorian silhouettes and designing and making our own DT models. We hope to have children that even go ‘above and beyond’ and produce additional work that we then share to benefit the rest of the class.
Our school’s MAPLE passport values are really important to each of us, and we always strive to demonstrate them to show that we are true Maple Court people.
6M will have PE on a Monday morning. Children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kit – red Maple Court PE top, plain black jogging bottoms and trainers.
We hope you have enjoyed meeting us and we hope you can see how fantastic life and learning is in 6M!
