What we will be learning in this term:

Summer 1


A few things to remember:


Eagles have PE on a Monday/ Hawk and Kestrels on a Tuesday.  We all have an additional PE session on Thursday.  Children to attend both days in their outdoor PE kit.

-  Remember to wear the correct kit to school- black leggings/ jogging bottoms or shorts.  White or house t-shirt.  Wheelock fleece/ jumper or cardigan or house hoody for outdoor activities.  

- Spare outdoor footwear must be brought into school to ensure footwear is changed and inside school remains clean 


Home Learning - this term

Children in Year 5/6 are given their homework weekly on a Thursday or Friday.  It will consist of:


Year 5:

Maths - A maths worksheet will be set each week linked to the work completed in school. The children are also expected to spend time on TT Rock stars. We will set regular battles between the class and you may find your class has their own leaderboard.

Literacy - A SPAG worksheet will be given each week.

Reading - Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week and record this in their planner. It would be great to see a mixture of parent/guardian comments as well as children’s comments in their planner. Planners are collected each week and checked by the teacher.

Spelling - Children will have a weekly set of spellings and this can be accessed through Spelling Shed. The children are expected to complete 10 games on Spelling Shed each week.  You have been sent your child's login via email. Spellings will then be tested in school on a Thursday or Friday. The children are also tested on their step tricky words throughout the year. A copy of the ones they need to practise can be found in their planner or homework book.


Year 6:

During spring 2 and summer 1, children in year 6 will be provided with revision workbooks.  They will usually be given two weeks to complete a section, but these will overlap so we would encourage children to begin their homework on the day it is given out. During half-term, children will be expected to complete two sections.

Please ensure a parent helps to mark the section before it is returned to school to allow us to use our time to address misconceptions or errors.  Some children will be provided with additional supports to either extend or support their learning.
