Welcome to Algeria Class
Welcome to the page of Year 6 - Algeria Class.
Ferring CE Primary School Documentary
Algeria Class enjoyed a fantastic trip to Sky Studios during the Autumn Term. We found out how to perform, produce and edit TV programmes. With our new found proficiency in TV production we have written, scripted, performed, edited and produced our own documentary about life at Ferring Primary School. In groups we each took different aspects of school life and created a short film. We then edited these together to complete an entire 15 minute documentary. We will be sharing this with a school in Egypt as part of our International School work. You can enjoy our efforts below and find out all about life at Ferring. Enjoy!
This year, Algeria Class have PE timetabled for Thursday and Friday. You will need your kit for these times but it's a good idea to bring your kit in every Monday, leave it in school until Friday and then take it home for a wash. You can leave your kit in school for longer but it's best to take it home regularly to be washed - especially in Year 6. This half term, we will be doing Athletics and Gymnastics. You do not need any additional kit for these sessions.
I will be out of class every Thursday afternoon and a supply teacher will take Algeria Class during that time for Computing and PE (Athletics).
This term, you will focus on completing SATs practice tests in your 10-Minute Test practice books for GPS, Reading and Maths. Every week, you need to complete a 10-Minute Tests in each of these areas (a total of 3 different 10-minute test practice activities). In addition, there will be a weekly spellings to learn. You are also expected to read regularly and make a comment about your reading in your homework diary once a week. The only piece of Topic homework will be set the week before half term and be due in the first Monday back.
There is quite a lot of homework to do so you will need to be organised. If you need help or extra time, you are very welcome to attend homework club and ask for time at lunchtimes to do homework in school. I can also be available to help you with any tasks you are finding tricky. You need to be responsible, though, for asking me for additional help BEFORE the homework is due.

Huge congratulations to Algeria Class pupils for the outcomes of last half term's extended homework task - an independent history research project - where pupils selected a key date to find out about and present. There were some really fantastic pieces of history work. Well done, everyone! Below are some of the highly commended pieces of history research work and presentations - well done to Lillie, Ella, Thomas, Luke B, Maisie, Oliver, Becky, Lily-Rose & Jasmine :)
