Learning Together

Class 5

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.

 

 

Happy New Year! Welcome back to our class page for 2022. It is so good to have our whole class in school, fit and healthy. We might have only been back at school for a few days, but already have done some excellent work around friendships and online safety. This was after writing about our hopes and fears for 2022.

 

We have continued our work on fractions and started work on the circulatory system. We also met up with our buddies again. Today we helped them to play a variety of games. It was great fun. Check back soon to see some pictures of things 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. 

Homework:

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.

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 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.
