Welcome to Class 5
Class 5 is made up of 20 year 6 pupils and are taught by our Deputy Head Teacher Mr Blackburn. Mrs Oddie also teaches in our class on a Monday.
It has been a great first couple of weeks in school. It is nice to see things getting a little bit more like back to normal. Year 6 are enjoying sitting on the benches in assembly and leading by example. We have all met our buddies and really enjoyed playing with them in the continuous provision in Reception. We are looking forward to more exciting things over the coming weeks. Remember to look here for regular updates and photos of things that we have been doing.
We have a lot of responsibility in Year 6 which include:
- being a Buddy to younger children in school,
- leading School Council and the Eco Council,
- being Faith and Playground Leaders
- managing the House Point system across school.
- writing the school prospectus
As well as all the above, we also do some fabulous learning.
Please see our learning overview for this term for more information.
Autumn Term 2021
All our homework is set on Google Classroom.
There will be a mix of maths and English work set this term to help children build on the learning that we have completed in school.
A good site for spelling revision is: spelling frame.co.uk
On this you can play games, hear the words and learn or revise the spelling patterns learnt throughout KS2.
Have a go by clicking the link above.
Revision and practice sites for mathematics (all are free)- just click the links below to access the sites:
REVISION IDEAS FOR Y6
As we move throughout Year 6, children will be encouraged encouraged to undertake a regular programme of revision alongside their usual weekly homework tasks.
To help them along the way we have found some sites which they may find useful. Many of these are interactive and use brief tutorials or engage the children to use their knowledge through the playing of games. These should be used alongside Study Guides to help with their practise and revision. More details will be given on these, as we personalise learning for the children, as we move throughout the year.
Maths and English Practice- take a look at some of the sites mentioned below to help with your preparation for the KS2 SATs in May:
IXL have separate pages of skills linked to individual Year groups. The Y6 page has links to practise both English and Maths skills. Pages are then split into skills with a practise question for the children to think about.
BBC Education has produced a whole selection of materials for KS2. Follow the KS2 link and then select either Maths or English. Each area usually has an information section for reading, plus an activity and then quiz which is then marked online. Some aspects require a subscription.
A site with both Maths and English based quizzes which are marked as you go along.
A site with a range of information and questions – great for revision purposes!
A revision site based upon the old Key Stage 2 Tests but still contains lots of useful information for both Maths and English. It is also useful for homework topics.
A site with links to old style Key Stage 2 Maths Papers, Maths Tutorials as well as Maths Games. Some of these games are linked to Memory and would therefore, help pupils to retain key information.
This site has links to Maths and English revision materials, including worksheets to look at online or to print off and practise with.
Again these are “old style” Key Stage 2 test papers but are still useful for practise, and in particular, creating discussion around questions and strategies to answer. View on screen or print off for free.
Maths click on “For Kids” to access some fun games to practise speed of recall of times tables.
This site has lots of Maths games for help in practising a range of skills.
Lots of Maths games on a range of Mathematical concepts.
A range of English games and activities.
Activities to reinforce and practise a range of spelling rules.
A range of activities and games to practise a range of spelling rules and patterns.
With thanks to Alder Coppice for some of their ideas.
