Years 5 and 6
Class Teacher: Mr. Philip Cameron.
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Julie Tebbutt
Mr Cameron and Mrs Tebbutt are excited to be working with your children as they continue on their educational journey.
Our learning journey this term will be the Shang Dynasty. We will be looking at the History of them- where they fit into our time line and what came before and after. As Geographers- we will be learning about where they were in the world and what size and area they ruled. We will also look at what life was like during this dynasty. How they lived and what they believed in. We will consider if there were similarities between life, now and then? And, when might we prefer to live.
We will aim to give pupils spellings every week. These will be worked on in class and tested the following week. Please look at these with your child and ensure they know how to spell them and can use them in context.
We have created another homework grid for the term. Please send in work as it is completed- either in the homework books provided or pictures/ models of work.
Year 6 children will have additional homework with tasks to complete to support their preparation for SATs. If they have not managed to do a substantial amount of their Easter pack, please help them get this as near to completion as possible- it really well help them in the upcoming exams.
Most pupils read every day in Copper Beech!
We are hugely passionate about reading and believe it supports every aspect of your child’s education, which is why we are setting the challenge of at least 5 reads per week (signed off by an adult in their reading record) and reading at least 3 of the ten books on the Summer Term Reading challenge.
