In line with government guidance, from September we will be welcoming all registered pupils to our schools.

Y5 & 6 - Caradon Class

Welcome to

Caradon Class 

About us:

There are 29 children in our class. Our teacher is Miss Davies and our teaching assistants are Mrs Sandercock and Mrs Worth.

Welcome back to the new school year. What a time it has been, we will be taking our time to ensure that all children are well settled back into class and our new routines whilst also keeping the day to day of school life consistent for them. In this first half term we will be learning all about British Kings and Queens. In particular we will be focusing on Henry VIII and Queen Victoria. This will include a look at Tudor and Victorian life and how these differed.  

 

In science the children will be completing their unit on materials. They will be investigating thermal and electrical conductors, reversible and irreversible changes in materials and soluble solutions. There will be lots of practical experiments and testing in this unit. 

 

Please find below the children's topic web and homework grid which is also in their homework books. They have also received a 'knowledge organiser'. This is a document which has a range of facts and vocabulary the children will be coming across in the coming weeks. 

 

 

Reading challenge.

Listed below are the top fifty books that are recommended that your child reads. Have a look and see how many of these you can read this year. If you click on the link you can also download a checklist too. Happy reading!  

 

Year 5

Year 6

Spellings: We will be continuing using MrN to teach out spellings. The children will return home with 3-5 spellings to learn each week. It is important that they practice these to build their skills.

Look out for weekly home communication letters, these will have updates about our learning and any events for the coming week. This will be given out on a Monday.

We are also learning: 

  • DT
  • RE
  • Geography
  • Maths
  • English
  • Computing
  • PE
  • PSHE
  • Music
SATs week - 

These tests in English and maths will reflect the new national curriculum.

At the end of Year 6, children will sit tests in:

  • Reading
  • Maths
  • Spelling, punctuation and grammar

These tests will be both set and marked externally, and the results will be used to measure the school’s performance (for example, through reporting to OFSTED and published league tables). Your child’s marks will be used in conjunction with teacher assessment to give a broader picture of their attainment.

The previous national curriculum levels have been scrapped, and instead children will be given scaled scores. You will be given your child’s raw score (the actual number of marks they get), alongside their scaled score and whether they have reached the national average. The score needed to reach the national average has yet to be announced.
