Years 5 and 6
Class Teacher: Mr Richard Grant & Mrs Judith Koral
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Julie Tebbutt
Mr Grant 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 ancient civilisations. We will be focussing particularly on the Indus Valley and the Shang Dynasty.
For information about curriculum coverage and events, please see the linked PDF document.
Homework is set weekly; the children will have their weekly spellings, reading comprehension and maths task stuck in their homework books which must come into school every Tuesday.
Once marked, they will be returned to the children on Friday ready for them to learn their new spellings. Children will be tested on their learnt spellings on a Friday.
Children will also have a multiplication grid in their homework books and I would encourage you to practice and test these at least once at home each week too!
All the children have access to Mathletics and should be aiming to complete any tasks set directly by Mr Grant or Mrs Tebbutt, as well as attempting to score enough points for a certificate.
Year 6 children will have additional ’10 Minute Test’ homework books with tasks to complete to support their preparation for SATs.
We are hugely passionate about reading and believe it supports almost 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 Autmn Term Reading challenge.
In term 2, PE kits will be needed on Thursday primarily, but as there are quite often sporting events taking place during the week your child should have their PE kit in school all week.
