High Aspirations Bright Futures


Welcome to Class 6BP!

Our teachers are Ms Blackledge (mornings) and Mrs Parkinson (afternoons); our SSAs are Mrs Grogan and Mrs Yim.

Week beginning 5th February 2018

The last week of the half term is upon us and already we're into February! This week (Tuesday), we will be taking part in Safer Internet Day and learning all about how to stay safe online. Please help to support your child in staying safe by looking at the resources below and talking to your child about their internet usage. 


We want the children to enjoy a well-earned rest over the half-term holiday, however, it is vital that they continue practising their skills in maths and English in short bursts. Could we therefore ask that you ensure your child is reading daily and that they have a go at some of the maths games on Class 6BP's page - this will really help them to improve and ensure that they don't go rusty over the break!


Could we remind parents and carers that children should be coming to school in full school uniform which includes a pair of sensible school shoes. We do not allow children to wear trainers in school as these often are not water resistant, do not provide proper support for children's growing feet and are not part of our school uniform.

We hope that you and your child enjoy the half-term holiday; don't forget, school reopens at 8.40 am on Monday 19th February!

Macbeth Drama! Wednesday 7th February
The whole class worked in groups of five to re-enact the murder of King Duncan by Macbeth. The children were trying to show what they thought happened during the scene as the reader is not given all the details in the text. They followed the session by watching the video of their drama then answering questions based on what they saw. The questions they worked on are:
  • What did you notice about the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth: who was in charge?
  • How did Macbeth and Lady Macbeth deal with the guards?
  • Why did the guards not suspect what was about to happen?
  • How did Macbeth feel when Duncan spoke to him?
  • From what you saw, do you think Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will get away with murder? Who would people blame

Check out our 'Fabulous Work' page for photos of each group's freeze frame!
