Welcome to Dalton's class page!


We are a Year 6 class with 27 children. Mrs Rust is our class teacher and we are extremely lucky to have two fantastic teaching assistants: Mrs Chandler and Mrs Fice.  Take a look at some of our learning that we've done so far this year.


To prepare children for secondary school we issue three pieces of written homework each week. In addition to this we ask that children are learning their times tables, weekly spellings and reading regularly. The days for written homework are as follows:

Monday - Maths Homework handed out (to be handed in on Wednesday)

Wednesday - English homework handed out (to be handed in on Friday)
Friday - Topic Homework handed out (to be handed in on the Monday of the following week)

Failure to submit homework on time, without a valid reason, will result in the child remaining in 5 minutes at breaktimes to complete the work.

Children complete English and maths homework in booklets that are based upon SAT questions. We find the books to be the best way of preparing your child for the types of questions they will encounter during SATS in May 2019.


Children should also be learning their times tables as all children are expected to know each multiplication table (up to 12 x 12) by heart by the time they reach secondary school.

In addition to the pieces of written homework we ask that all children read regularly. We suggest a minimum of 15 minutes per night. Reading and discussing books each night will help your children to develop the higher order reading skills of comprehension and will help to move their reading forward.

Christmas Decorations Afternoon

What an amazing afternoon!  All the children got to design their own bunting for the school competition and calendars for the New Year.  Thank you to all that came and supported this great event.   

Indoor Rowing


On the 15th and 16th November, Year 6 enjoyed a day of indoor rowing. During this day, the children took part in individual races and team races; each competing to get the best time. When they weren't rowing, they had to complete a circuit of stretches and exercises where they demonstrated excellent team work skills by encouraging each other and supporting each other when they were stretching. They all had a fantastic two days and we think we have some future rowers in our year group! Mrs Rust also had a race against Mr Hocking - which she just unfortunately lost.

English - Autumn Term


During the Autumn Term we are studied 'Carrie's War', a book based in World War Two about two children who get evacuated to the countryside.  We wrote stories about being in World War II , our own evacuee stories and  a newpaper report based on Plymouth in the Blitz.


Class Dojo


Thank you to all Whitebeam Parents - We have all signed up and are receiving messages. 


We love earning Dojo Points in class. We can earn points for demonstrating our whole school learning behaviours: creativity, curiosity, independence, reflection, resilience and teamwork. Every time we are 'caught' using these learning behaviours we receive a Dojo point from the teachers. We can collect Dojo points to earn rewards. Our Class Dojo is linked to our parents and we can share our learning directly with them.

REN Reading


This year, Whitebeam Class are focusing on our reading skills. When the children have completed a book, they can log on to their REN learning area using the link below and complete a quiz about it. The children can also log on a home and complete quizzes. They all have their own user name and passwords. They can show you all of the books they have read and all of the quizzes they have passed.
