Welcome to Phoenix!
Hello! I am Mrs Hatcher - the year six class teacher. Mrs Burton is our brilliant teaching assistant, who we are very lucky to have in our class of 22 children.
Each day is action-packed and full of learning. In the mornings, we concentrate on our literacy, including SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation), reading and writing creatively across different text types. Also, we complete daily mental maths sessions using a fun passport followed by a maths lesson. Our afternoons are when we do non-core subjects including science, art, ICT, DT, projects, history and geography. Where possible, we complete our learning in a cross-curricular, topic-based fashion.
This term, our focus has been on 'The Umbrellas' by Renoir. The children have been highly engaged and as a result have produced some amazing pieces of work - some of which are too good to remain in exercises books!
We hope you check this page frequently to keep up to date with the learning in Phoenix Class!
