Hello, my name is Mrs. King and I teach the Year 6 Owls Class.


I am the Subject Leader for Design and Technology.


I am interested in ensuring we enable our children to become innovative and creative learners of the future.



Autumn Term Overview


Every day we focus on the basics Reading, Writing, Maths and Science. Each week we also study Physical Education, Music, Religious Education and Personal, Social and Emotional subjects. Each term we go deeply into subjects such as Art, History, Geography and Design and Technology. We also study Modern Foreign Languages and Computing.


Tools for learning


Pupils use the following tools to help them learn more and remember more.


1. Knowledge Organiser - pupils use this tool to understand what knowledge they will learn.


Things to Remember:

Reading books and records need to be in class EVERYDAY.

Our PE day is MONDAY - we will have a PE lesson and complete our weekly mile on this day. Please wear your PE kit to school for the entire day

Spellings take place in school everyday

Homework is set on Fridays and is to be handed in by Fridays. You will be notified it there are any changes to this.


At Mount Wise, we continue to following a Storytelling approach to teaching creative writing and drama. In our Summer term, we will be writing poetry, narratives, explanation texts and speeches. These will link to our topics across all subjects (History, Geography and Science).  



SATS week 

Please ensure your child knows there times tables up to 12x12 and can solve using all four calculations. 



Homework continues to be an integral part of our learning experience in Year 6. All children are set homework tasks on a Friday, which are then to be handed in by the following Friday. Homework always includes a reading comprehension task, a maths-related task which links to learning in class that week, a grammar-related task which links to learning in class that week and 3 weekly spellings which all children will also be learning in class. Please also ensure that your child reads at home at LEAST 3 x weekly.


All children are expected to complete their homework. If a child fails to hand in their homework, it is expected they catch up on their work in their free time in school.

Hi Owls! I hope you've had a good week and made the most of your daily exercise to get out of the house each day. You should now have all recieved a new home learning pack - it was great to see some of you whilst I delivered them. These packs are for you to use when you can, to keep on top of all the core skills you'll need for secondary school. Complete them at your own pace.


I'm now reading 'The Last Spellbreather' at home. You need anymore reading books, please contact school and we'll arrange something for you.


Well done to the following children who quizzed on AR at home last month: Melissa, Maria, David, Summer, Ebonnie, Kassim and Shay

A great big HELLO to all of Year 6! I know times are hard at the moment and that you're probably really bored with staying in at home, but hopefully we can see each other soon.
