Year 6 Meerkats

Mrs Stockton and I have both been really impressed with how well the children have settled back into life at school - here we all are in our classroom. 

We're the Meerkats!

Welcome to our class.


We're alert and friendly, big-hearted and wise.

We help one another and work wonders together!


Class Book

This half term we are reading The Explorer by Katherine Rundell.


Fred, Con, Lila, and Max are on their way back to England from Manaus when the plane they’re on crashes and the pilot dies upon landing. For days they survive alone, until Fred finds a map that leads them to a ruined city, and to a secret.


Achievement Awards!

Friday 15th January


This week's Achievement Awards go to Suri and Lahna!


Suri has put in so much effort into all of her homelearning tasks this week. All of her work is completed to a high standard and she always asks questions when she is unsure. I have been particularly impressed with your resilience when completing the English writing tasks. 


Lahna has really impressed Mrs Wilkinson and Mrs Fretwell this week, whilst working in the Flamingos bubble in school. You have settled into the new learning environment so well, and have shown determination and enthusiasm when working in class. 


Keep up the great work girls! 



We will have PE on Monday and Wednesday afternoon and we will also do a 'daily mile' on Monday afternoon as well. Children should come dressed in their PE kit with long hair tied back and no jewellery/ earrings covered with plasters.

Meerkat's Class Champions 

A huge well done to all of the children in the Meerkats class who worked really hard to produce a video and put themselves forward for the role of House Captain.  The videos were amazing and there are now two House Captains and four Vice Captains from the Meerkat's Class.

Harvest lesson 
The Meerkats had their harvest lesson today.  Children learned about how much food the average person gets in each continent around the world.  To help, children said they could grow some food, eat their leftovers or donate to the food bank to make food more sustainable. Well done Meerkats. 

Mental Health Awareness Day

   The Meerkats spent some time today thinking about the difference between just feeling down or grumpy and having a mental health difficulty.  Children came up with super examples of how to stay calm and feel relaxed.  We practiced positive self- talk.  How to find the good side of each situation.
