Years 5 and 6
Class Teacher: Miss Rosie Ashton
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Julie Tebbutt
Welcome back to another exciting new term in Copper Beech Class!
Miss Ashton and Mrs Tebbutt are very excited to be working with your children as they take their next step on their educational journey.
Our learning journey this term is Conquerors’ Castles, in which we will study castles through history, how their uses and significance has changed through time from 1066 to the modern day!
For information about curriculum coverage, trips and events, please see the linked PDF document.
Homework is set weekly; the children have their weekly spellings and maths task stuck in their homework books which must come into school every Tuesday. Once marked, they will be returned to the children on Wednesdays ready for them to learn their new spellings. Children also have a multiplication grid in their homework books and I would encourage you to practice and test these at least once at home each week too!
Year 6 children will have additional ’10 Minute Test’ homework books with tasks to complete to support their preparation for SATs.
I am hugely passionate about reading and believe it supports almost every aspect of your child’s education, which is why we are setting the challenge of at least 5 reads per week (signed off by an adult in their reading record) the children will be rewarded by an additional 10 minute break time!
PE kits will be needed in school on Thursdays and Fridays.
I am more than happy to speak to parents at the end of the school day, so if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Here are some websites that your children could use to help with their times tables.
