There are 29 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Davies and our teaching assistants are Miss Stopps and Mrs Squires.
This half term the children will be learning all about WW2. We are going to do lots of cross curricular immersive learning, looking at the Blitz in London, life as an evacuee and even kick starting our topic with making Potato Bread. We will be singing war time songs and creating some really effective art work. In the run up to Christmas, the children will think about how Christmas would have been for children during the war and creating home made gifts using our sewing skills.
If anyone has any war memorabilia eg. ration books, photographs, evacuee information please don't hesitate to share it;it will be well looked after.
Spellings: Spellings will be set and tested each Thursday Afternoon. Most of the weekly spellings now follow a spelling rule, please explore and practice these with your children.
Forest School: Forest school will take place weekly on a Friday with each year group alternating. Please check the school calendar for dates.
Look out for weekly home communication letters, these will have updates about our learning and any events for the coming week. This will be given out on a Monday.
We are also learning:
These tests in English and maths will reflect the new national curriculum.
At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:
These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to OFSTED and published league tables). Your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.
The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children will be given scaled scores. You will be given your child’s raw score (the actual number of marks they get), alongside their scaled score and whether they have reached the national average. The score needed to reach the national average has yet to be announced.
