Our Class Saint

St. Nicholas Owen

 

When children were deciding upon our Class Saint, they wanted one of the English Martyrs, representing our parish church.

When we looked at their stories, the children wanted to choose St. Nicholas Owen as they believed him to be often overlooked for his incredibly brave work constructing the priest holes to hide Catholic priests when it was still illegal to be Catholic. His level of bravery in the face of certain persecution, and faith in God, struck a chord with our class, and that is why he is the Year 5 & 6 class saint this year.

Homework

 

All children in Y5/6 will receive a piece of Maths and English homework each week. These should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. These will be given out on a Thursday and are to be returned on a Monday. This work will be based on what we are covering in class.

 

Daily Maths – Your child will be set 4 questions a day (one addition, one subtraction, one multiplication and one division appropriate to their year group) which will be copied down in morning task time. The children will complete these at home and then mark the questions together as a class in the morning.

 

Daily English - This year we have made changes to the Daily English homework to help focus on extending the children`s vocabulary. Please note that this is revised from information provided at the induction sessions.

 

On Mondays your child will be given a set of 5 words to find the meaning of (appropriate to their year group). They must then use each word in a sentence to demonstrate their understanding.

As previously we will go through one word and sentence per day; the children could choose to do all 5 on the first night should they wish.

 

Reading Diaries

 

Please ensure that reading diaries are sent into school every day. We encourage our children to read at home with an adult at least three times a week, please can we ask that this is recorded and signed off in your child’s diary. Not only does this benefit children`s reading, but also their writing and vocabulary - incredibly important in Year 5 & 6.

 

 

Spellings

 

 Children will receive new spellings on a Monday and will be tested on these the following Friday.

 


 Thank you for your consistent support with your child’s learning journey!

Class Focus

 

It is imperative that children know Times Tables to 12x12 and the division inverse.

 

Learn Spellings from the Y5/6 spelling lists

Please ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school at all times.
