Y5 & 6 - Caradon Class

Welcome to

Caradon Class 

About us:

There are 30 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Davies and our teaching assistants are Miss Stopps and Miss Easey

 

American Adventures

This term, the children will be voyaging across the Atlantic to learn about North and South America. We will begin by look at Christopher Columbus and the trip he took, followed by what he found when he arrived- Native Americans. Our main focus will be geography where we will look at the human and physical geography of the continents comparing it to our own local area. 

 

Our guided reading book will be 'Holes' by Louis Sacher. We will be taking a trip to the Theater Royal in Plymouth in March to see a performance of the book. 

 

In science the children will be completing their unit on light before moving onto the human circulatory system. We will be looking at the make up of blood, the main organs in the body and how our heart and lungs work together to pump oxygen and nutrients around the body. 

 

Please find below the children's topic web and homework grid which is also in their homework books. They have also received a 'knowledge organiser'. This is a document which has a range of facts and vocabulary the children will be coming across in the coming weeks. 

 

 

Spellings: We will be continuing using MrN to teach out spellings. The children will return home with 3-5 spellings to learn each week. It is important that they practice these to build their skills.

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: 

  • DT
  • RE
  • Science - Animals including humans
  • Geography
  • Maths
  • English
  • Computing - databases
  • PE
  • PSHE
  • Music
SATs week - Monday 11th May to Thursday 14th May 2020

These tests in English and maths will reflect the new national curriculum.

At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:

  • Reading
  • Maths
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar

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.
