Bassenthwaite Lake - Y6

Welcome to Bassenthwaite Lake Class Page. We are all looking forward to the new school year and the challenges and opportunities that we will face. We are looking forward to being in Year 6.


To start the year, we created our Top 5 Rules. These rules were suggested by the children in the class and we all gave examples of what we might be doing to show that we are following the rules. Once we had created these, we all signed them to show that we agree to following Bassenthwaite’s Top 5 rules.


We are really trying to push ourselves this year with our reasoning in Maths, so that we become Maths Masters! As a class, we are going to try  to ‘Dive Deeper’ and explore our thinking. We question our thinking and try to find a variety of ways to solve problems. We love using the resources in the classroom, which help us to understand and solve problems.


We love reading in Bassenthwaite! Children have their own reading book that they should take home with them and strive for five. Children can then return their book once they have done and swap it for a new one that may take their interest. We are also about to start our class guided reading text. This term we will be reading Machine Gunners and have made several links to it in writing and our topic this term – World War 2.


We are really looking forward to learning more about World War 2 this term. We will be looking closely at the lives of children during the war, especially focusing on evacuees and their lives away from home.


A target for us as a class this year, is to make sure we are always working at the year 6 standard. We have great responsibilities as Year 6’s, whether it is a Buddy, Sports Leader, Singing Leader or Digital Leader. We always makes sure we are doing the best that we can!
