Mr McHugh Year 6 - Falcons
Welcome to the Falcons' class page
Mr McHugh (Teacher)
Mrs Cruickshank (Teaching Assistant)
Mrs Partridge (Teach Assistant)
Throughout the year, we will be updating our progress so please check in to see how we're getting on!
The following are some great links for support in helping your child’s learning at home:
BBC Bitesize KS2
A good website which covers all subjects we teach throughout the year. I suggest this is your go-to website for understanding the vocabulary that is used in the curriculum.
We use Doodle Maths as our online homework for Maths. Doodle Maths works specifically on the needs of each individual child. We ask the children do a little bit often to help develop these mathematical skills and to support their progress through the school year.
TT Rock Stars
We use TTRS on a daily basis and ask the children to do so at home too. Those children who are still securing their understanding of multiplication and division facts (up to the 12x tables) will be asked to complete daily Garage games on the app. Once they have shown they have completed all possible levels on Garage, they will be notified by Mr McHugh who will then ask them to focus on Studio games which targets their speed of recall.
Term 1 - Home Front
15/09/22 - Light direction investigation
This week, we investigated ways to prove that light travels in straight lines in our Science lesson. We used torches and hole-punched card to test our theories out and we were able to recognise what happened to the light, the further it travelled away from its source!
08/09/22 - Poet visit
The poet Jason Seigal visited us to talk all things poetry! We learnt that there’s so much more to poetry than just rhyming! We thought our favourite places and then went on to create our own poems with his help. It was cool when he signed copies of his books for us!
06/09/22 - WW2 Experience Day
To kickstart our Home Front topic, we experienced different WW2 activities on our first day back in school. We tried making pancakes using rationed ingredients, played WW2 playground games, drew soldiers as well as Winston Churchill and sang some songs from the time such as Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’. Not a bad start to the school year!
