Welcome to Gold Class

Teacher: Miss Noble

We are years 5 and 6

 

On this page you can have a look at what we are doing this term, check out important diary dates and find out important information.

 

This term we will be learning:

  • Science - Properties and changes of materials
  • History - Anglo-Saxons, Scots and Vikings
  • Computing - Coding
  • RE - Christianity
  • Music - Classroom Jazz
  • PE - Swimming

 

PE

Indoor PE will be on Thursdays and Outdoor PE will be on Tuesdays. Children MUST have their PE kits in school at all times as there will be times when we have to swap PE slots for various reasons.

Please have everything labelled so items can easily be identified if lost.

Our class will be swimming every Wednesday until Christmas, please make sure your child has their swimming kit every week. 

 

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings. Learning logs have been given for the first half term. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. At the bottom of this page you will find the copy of the learning logs for the half term. 

 

Spellings will be sent home every week. They need to be learnt for the spelling tests. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts.

 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.

 

Reading

Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day.We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home. At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.
