Welcome to class 11! I am Mr Rae and I teach year 6 at Upperwood Academy. Our teaching assistants in class are Mrs Zbik, Mrs Allsop and Miss Hemmingway.
Our topic this half term is Rivers and Mountains. We are learning about who the world’s largest rivers and mountains, how rivers and mountains are formed, field sketching and many more exciting things. We will also be looking at Islam in R.E and drawing in Art.
Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. Please ensure you bring your P.E kit and some sports trainers to school on these days.
Spelling test days are on Fridays. We will compete in the school spelling battle, so remember to practise your spellings. To support learning at home, we encourage children to practise their spellings read daily and practise their times tables.
