Summer RSHE lessons (RSE):

During summer term RSHE lessons, we are mainly focusing on our relationships curriculum and any remaining health lessons, that have not been taught earlier in the year. In line with government guidance, we will not be teaching separate RSE (relationship, sex education). These lessons will now be integrated into our summer relationships lessons.

 

These lessons are now statutory, and will be taught in an age appropriate, respectful way. Pupils in Years 4-6 will be split by gender for some concepts like puberty and menstruation to enable them to feel confident when asking questions. 

 

The only non-statutory element of our RSE teaching in Year 6 is the human reproduction system and conception. This will be 1 lesson which will be after our 3 statutory lessons on puberty.  As this is a non-statutory lesson, parents have the option to view the lesson resources before they are taught (we are also sharing the 3 statutory puberty lessons) and can speak to class teachers if they have concerns about their children being part of lessons. Resources that we will use in the lessons can be found below. We will start teaching these lessons towards the end of week beginning 14th June.

Remote Learning

If your child is at home self-isolating, please refer to the class notebook on Microsoft Teams to access and complete work for this week.

 

You can find your child's log-in in the 'Report Section' of MCAS. Refer to our 'How to' guides for more details.

Your child is expected to follow the class timetable and complete daily English, (phonics) and maths lessons as well as weekly lessons from our Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum. Your child class teacher will make contact through the class notebook, and Microsoft Teams each day. This may be though written feedback or a video call. Your child's class teacher will arrange times for this.

Sanitary products

Due to the Government’s period product scheme, we have a supply of sanitary towels for girls that require them. This is so girls don’t miss out on their education due to having their period. These are now available in the Year 5 and 6 girls’ toilets on the windowsill. The girls will also be told of the location as there was previously sanitary products in a different location. There will be safety information displayed alongside the products and there is a sanitary bin for safe disposal. If you have a daughter, who has started her periods, please explain that if she needs these products, she can help herself without asking and then can dispose on her old sanitary towel and wrapping in the sanitary bin. If your child is already brining in sanitary products, she can continue to do so but there are products available if needed. The make we have are Always sanitary towels. Please talk to your daughter, about how to use these safely, including that they should be changed regularly. The brand Always suggest they should be changed every 4- 8 hours for health reasons. If your daughter is ever worried about having their period at school, please encourage them to speak to their teacher or another trusted adult in school.

Fielding Learning Challenge Curriculum

 

Home learning

Top education researchers tell us that homework has minimal impact for primary age pupils, unless it requires children to rehearse and practise.  Our routines to reflect this. The routines for children in this year group are as follows:

 

  • Reading and/or talking about their reading to an adult for at least 20 minutes, 5 times a week. Complete your child’s reading record each time they read. Remember it doesn’t always have to be their school book. Reading records and reading books should be sent into school daily. Teachers will have a look at these to check regular reading is taking place at home.
  • Learning spelling patterns linked to Year Group  expectations ready for use in dictation towards the end of every week. These spellings will be on year group notice boards and should be practised at home.
  • Reciting multiplication tables to increase their fluency so that they can be applied in other areas of maths and problem solving. Log on to Timestable Rockstars!
  • Half-termly creative home learning will be set at the start of each half term and will celebrated and fed back on during our creative home learning showcases.

 

You will be able to see your child’s progress through class exercise books for English and maths being sent home at least once during every term as well as at parent consultation meetings.

 

English

 

Spelling patterns 

Please practice all Year 5 and 6 words, in Reading Journals. 

 

Reading

Children will bring home their reading book, linked to the phonics or book band they have been assessed at. They also have the choice to select a recommended reading book or library book to share at home with you. More information about reading can be found

Once the children have read a book, it would be great if they could complete one of the activities of their choice outlined below. These can be completed in the blue book that children have been given. 

 

Activity Choices (they can be completed more than once):

1. Compare the book to another book you have read. What was similar? What was different? Think about characters/setting and events.

2. Draw a picture of your favourite character and write 5 words or phrases to describe their personality and 5 words/phrases to describe their appearance.

3. As you are reading, list any unfamiliar words and write their meaning.

4. If you could make one change to the story, what would it be and why?

5. Make a note of 3 of your favourite sentences and explain why you like them.

6. Complete a 'story S' which outlines the main events of the story.

Mathematics

TimesTables Rockstars!

TimesTables Rockstars is an online programme we have introduced to encourage children to have fun with multiplication facts while improving fluency, recall and speed. Children can access it in their own time on any IOS, Android or Windows device.

What is it?

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice. 

How does it work?

Incorrect answers are always immediately corrected in front of your child so that they start to associate the correct answer to every question. The clever code behind the scenes works out which times tables facts each child is consistently taking longer to answer and then it gradually starts to present these facts more frequently until they have mastered them. It will also ask related division questions 20% of the time in order to reinforce division facts.

How do I log in?

Log in here: https://ttrockstars.com/login, use your child's details that came home at the end of the Summer Term, lost them? Speak to your child's class teacher.

Please see the sites below for other interactive games to help your children's fluency in recalling their multiplication and division tables.
