Please scroll down to find termly spellings and curriculum maps showing our learning.
Please see below for information about what we are learning.
Our curriculum map gives a breakdown of the different subjects and the skills and knowledge we are covering this term.
We share information and images of your children via Seesaw so we encourage you to download the app and you will be able to see activities, photos and videos when they are uploaded. It is a lovely way to share the wonderful work your children do.
PE will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays . On these days please come into school wearing your PE kit - you will not need to bring in a PE bag! Please make sure you are wearing the appropriate school kit: white top, black shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers.Our sports coach, Mr Kingwell, teaches the Thursday afternoon session.
Please bring your reading books to school everyday. You have been tasked with reading for ten minutes each day at home to promote a love of reading. Please make sure you write a comment in your reading record book as I look at these each week to see how your reading at home is progressing. You will also have an 'Author's Journal' to collect ambitious vocabulary to use when writing in class. These need to be in school everyday.
Star of the Week will be awarded on a Friday. The following Friday the superstar has the opportunity to do a talk about themselves - it could be bringing in things to show, a PowerPoint presentation, sharing photographs, talking about themselves etc. It is a lovely way for you to shine!
For Term 1 your home learning is to read your reading books and to practise your spellings on a daily basis. As well as this, TTRockstars is a great way to practise your times tables and it is great fun too! From Term 2, Year 6 will be given arithmetic homework to complete. This will be given to you on a Thursday to be completed and returned by the following Monday.
Spellings are sent home each week. Spelling books need to be in school everyday. You will have a spelling test on a Friday. The statutory word lists below are all the spellings Year 5/6 are expected to spell correctly by the end of Year 6 .
