6ES - Manaus

Welcome to our class page!


This is what we are learning about this half term:


Manaus class have had a fantastic start to the year. The pupils' attitude towards their work has been very impressive; they have been working extremely hard!


Our class name comes from the book "Journey to the River Sea" that we are currently reading in class. It is based in Brazil and the Amazon rainforest. Keep an eye on this page for some recent pieces of English and Art work linked to the book.



Our weekly timetable:


Our PE day is Tuesday. Please ensure the children bring their kit in and that they can remove their own earrings - we are not allowed to tape them!


Our morning maths sessions run every Wednesday from 8am. These sessions are really helpful if the children would like any extra support in any areas or if they would like an extra challenge! Free breakfast and a drink is also provided. We have had fantastic attendance so far and we've had some great feedback from the children.



As always, we are thankful for all of your support with your children's learning.

Helpful websites/info:



Bug Club:   Each child has their own login for Bug Club. There are hundreds of fantastic books that the children can read and also answer comprehension questions about what they have read.
