Year 6 - Banksy Class
Welcome to Banksy's class page. Let’s look forward to the Spring term, even though it is going to be very different.
As you will be learning at home it is very important that we stay connected. I want to be able to see your smiling faces on Zoom, as well as enjoying your work via Class Dojo. Please remember that I will be giving you tips and advice when you send me your work, so ensure you read the advice and take it on-board to help you to continue to make progress.
In our core subjects of English and maths, we will be meeting via Zoom to work together. In maths we will be working on fractions, my favourite topic in maths! In English we will be looking at balanced arguments as well as covering many aspects of the GPS curriculum.
There are some great topics for you to get into and enjoy taking your time with at home. We will be looking at the rivers of the world in geography, evolution and inheritance in science, focusing on the work of Charles Darwin. In RE we will be looking at why and where people of different religious make pilgrimages, and in computing we will be looking at how to stay safe online as well as how networks work.
What a busy term ahead! I look forward to seeing what you can do.

All about Miss Cross
I love animals and have a cat called Larry.
I’m vegetarian. Larry isn’t!
I enjoy reading books and love nothing more than curling up with a good detective novel or a comedy book.
I would spend all my time gardening if I could or reading my book in the garden.
I am a supporter of Everton and have a feeling this season is going to be a good one (I say that every season!)
I enjoy art and wish I had more time to use my watercolour paints
