Year 5 (King AB) – Miss Britton
Year 6 (King MP) – Mr Pitts
This term – Generosity
Every term, we will be focusing on one of our Christian values. This term, our value is generosity. We will be exploring the water cycle and biomes in our wider curriculum.
We will be asking the children to continue focusing on Times Tables Rockstars, arithmetic, spellings, grammar and reading. Each week, the children will receive their instructions on a 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. Spellings for the week will be given out with homework.
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 Thursday. 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.
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.
