Welcome to Whitebeam's class page!


We are a Year 6 class with 25 children. Mrs Rust is our class teacher and we are extremely lucky to have three fantastic teaching assistants: Mrs Scot, Miss West and Mr Winsor. Take a look at some of our learning that we've done so far this year.



Indoor Rowing


On the 15th and 16th November, Year 6 enjoyed two days of indoor rowing. During these days, they 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!

Class Dojo


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.

We have been learning about light and completed an experiment to see how it travels. We found out through all of our experiments that light always travels in straight line and we can prove it!

This term we are studying 'Carrie's War', a book based in World War Two about two children who get evacuated to the countryside. We will be writing our own evacuee stories and write a newpaper report based on Plymouth in the Blitz.


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.
