Gold 2023 - 2024

Miss Noble

Welcome to Gold Class

Where only our best is enough


Teacher: Miss Noble

We are years 5 and 6

I cannot believe we are starting the summer term - our last term together and the final exciting term for our year six children - let's make it our greatest term yet! 😊

Important information


In Gold Class, our PE days are Monday and Thursday. 

This is the day that the children can attend school in PE kits. Please make sure the children have appropriate clothing to be doing PE outdoors as they will be having their lessons outside as much as possible.

Please still have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given online homework. This homework is on top of the children learning spellings, accessing Times Tables Rockstars and reading. The online homework will usually consist of maths homework on and grammar homework on Homework will be set on a Friday and needs completing by the following Wednesday. 

The children will also have a spelling task sheet from which they can select a task that they feel helps them to learn their spellings. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts. There will no longer be weekly spelling tests however children must continue working on their spellings each week at home and will continue to do so every day in class. 

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.

What are the advantages of your child learning their multiplication tables?

The key advantages include:

  • Application in daily life.
  • Integral to developing basic mathematical building blocks.
  • Building confidence with more complex tasks.
  • Gaining a conceptual understanding of multiplication and deeper thinking process.
  • Improving problem-solving abilities.
  • Developing key skills and 'number sense'

How can you help?

Regular practise on TTRockstars or the below sites with games to help with their learning.



Reading Dr Suess.jpg

The power of reading holds the key to success – it not only underpins everything we learn about but it also stimulates curiosity, intrigue, an active imagination and helps us to think critically and analytically so let’s work together to make your child be the best reader they can be! You can help by listening to your child read and by reading to your child (bedtime stories are a wonderful way). Don’t forget to sign your child’s reading diary too – extra credits are given for this😊.

Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day. 

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. The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too. 

At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.


Attendance matters and everyday counts!

Please ensure your child arrives on time and is ready for the school day ahead. If you have a problem, please let me know as soon as possible.

Missing school means missing learning and learning builds from one day to another.

Reward System

Credits are given to your children for their efforts, attitudes and behaviour. All credits earned go towards your child gaining their Bronze, Silver, Gold and Honours certificates, and finally the prestigious Badge (this is a special achievement, which is presented at the end of the year in our end of year assembly if enough merits are gained). 

Early Help 

Early help and early intervention are forms of support aimed at improving outcomes for children or preventing escalating need or risk. If for whatever reason you and your child are struggling and feel you need help, please do ask. School staff may be able to advise, offer support or signpost you to the people and agencies who can.

Important information

Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school except for stud earrings and watches.

Children MUST have long hair tied up - this is both boys and girls and includes fringes over the face.

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.
