Curriculum –

This year, we will continue to work within our Cornerstones Curriculum.  We will be covering four topics over the course of the school year. Our topics for this year will be ‘Hola Mexico!’, Blood Heart’, ‘World War II’, and ‘Darwin’s Delights’. Any interesting artefacts/information about these topics would be very welcomed into class.  We have already embarked on our first journey to explore the Wonders of Mexico!

Home Learning

The pupils will be provided with topic based projects to complete each term.  These will be marked in terms of effort and shared with the whole class as a way of celebrating and sharing the learning.  The children must complete at least one task from the list but they may complete them all if they so wish! The list of tasks have already been stuck into their planners so please check this with them and encourage them to be working on this at home. The deadline for the first project based home learning task is Monday 21st October.

Mr Civil and Mrs Davies will also give out Maths and Literacy home learning tasks alternately each week.  The children will have one whole week to complete these and they will be marked on return. Please ensure that children bring in their fabulous planners every day.  We really would like to see them taking responsibility for their homework and organisation in general.

Spelling

Spelling tests will be every Friday. Please help your child learn their spellings for the tests in order for them to know and apply these words to their work.

Guided Reading

Guided reading sessions will take place every Monday afternoon in Term one.  Please encourage your child to bring in a reading book of their choice.

P.E. 

P.E. takes place up to twice a week. These sessions will usually be on a Thursday and Friday for Year 6. Children should have their full PE kit in school available for gym sessions. Weather permitting, we will be outside for at least one of these sessions so outdoor trainers are advisable. Plain, suitable kits are required for PE sessions (school or house team colours are always preferable.
