There are 30 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Davies and our teaching assistants are Miss Stopps and Miss Easey
Hello and welcome back to another school year!! We will begin our learning by looking at 'The Groovy Greeks'. We have launched out topic by looking at the story of Apollo and Daphne and creating our own laurel wreaths which we will wear when we are being historians. This topic will take us through a range of areas looking at what life was like in Ancient Greece. We will find out about democracy, education, the culture, the Olympics and of course some myths along the way.
Please find below the children's topic web and homework grid which is also in their homework books.
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:
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.
