There are 29 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Davies and our teaching assistants are Miss Stopps and Mrs Squires.
Earth and Space
After a history focus for the first term this year, the children will now be geographers as we explore Earth and move up to Space. The children will be looking at and creating maps, using atlas' and doing lots of investigating. After half term this will then move up to have a Space focus.
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 Thursday. Y6 will do FS every Thursday this half term and Y5 will do every week in teh second half term.
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.
