This term –  Compassion in Leadership – Ancient Civilizations and Today

Every term, we will be focusing on one of our Christian values and linking that with our learning. This term, our value is compassion and therefore will be exploring big questions surrounding how we show compassion in our lives, which we will be exploring through our RE and our wider curriculum subjects. Within  History, we will be learning about the Shang Dynasty, exploring when this dynasty existed, who they were and what we can learn about them through our historian enquiry skills.  Please explore the theme map above at the top of the page for more information on what we will be learning in King hub this term.

Home Learning

For this term, in terms of home learning, we will be asking the children to continue focusing on Times Tables Rockstars, spellings, grammar and reading. Each week, the children will receive their instructions on a sheet, with a separate grammar exercise sheet. 

Timetables Rockstars – All children are expected to access TT Rockstars at home, this can be accessed through a computer, tablet or phone. If you have any difficulties with access or your child has forgotten their password and login, please let their teacher know. In Year 5 and 6, we would expect children to be accessing TT Rockstars approximately 5 times a week, for on average 5-10 minutes at a time. 3 out of 5 of those sessions are monitored as official home learning sessions, which will be checked by the child’s class teacher every week to ensure they have been completed.

Spelling – Attached on this webpage is the Y5/6 spelling list, a list of words that children would be expected to spell most of correctly by the end of Y6 and the spelling overview for Term 1, which shows the spelling rules we will be focusing on for this term. Each week, your child will receive a spelling test linked to the spelling rule from the overview.

Reading - Continuing from previous years, children will be expected to read 5x a week at home. Children are welcome to read their choice of book in this time but it should be recorded in their reading record, which will be taken in and checked on a Friday. In Year 6, we allow the children to write in their own reading records but I have explained to them that they will still require a signature from an adult. Additionally, we would ask that your child brings their reading record everyday to school if they can, as children will being read with by an adult on differing days. Children will be given 2/3 reading books from school, 1 age-appropriate book of their choice and 1 or 2 from our school reading scheme. They will change their reading books on a Friday and can then bring in their reading books they have finished throughout the week to be quarantined; if they have not finished, they can keep those books for another week.

P.E. days

Children are asked to come to school wearing their PE kit on the days when they have P.E. The school P.E. kit consists of a red t shirt, black/navy shorts and white/black slip-on plimsolls (daps). Children should not be wearing Football shirts. Children also require P.E. kit suitable for use on the field (including the winter months), which consists of black/navy tracksuit/jogging bottoms, a PE hoodie and trainers.
