Timetable

Home Learning 

Every pupil is expected to read at home daily for at least 10 minutes.  We would encourage your child to read as many different genres as possible.  Please sign the reading records to indicate that this has been done each day.

Grammar activities are provided in the home learning journals; these reinforce the learning done in weekly grammar lessons.  Your child may wish to do one of these each week once the lesson has been completed.

All children in Year 5 and 6 are given a selection of words to learn and practise at home.  These can be found in their small yellow spelling journals.  Please, encourage your child to practise these regularly.

We would strongly encourage every child to practise their times tables regularly (at least 3 or 4 times per week) using Times Tables Rock Stars.  There is a weekly tournament set up against our sister school (Puller) and every time you use TTRS, your score counts towards our school’s score!

 

Please find brand new Maths calendars for April and May (reproduced with kind permission from https://alittlebutalot.com/). The aim of these calendars is to give a Maths question a day for every day of the month.  Please discuss these with your child every day.

 

Highlights of the term 

Class Reader

Starting 5th grade at Beecher Prep, Auggie wants nothing more than to be treated as an ordinary kid—but his new classmates can’t get past his extraordinary face. Wonder begins from Auggie's point of view, but soon switches to include the perspectives of his classmates, his sister, her boyfriend, and others. These voices converge to portray a community as it struggles with differences, and challenges readers, both young and old, to wonder about the true nature of empathy, compassion, acceptance, friendship, and—ultimately—kindness. Auggie is a hero for the ages, one who proves that you can’t blend in when you were born to stand out.

Educational Visit

This term, we are planning an educational visit to Walton-On-The-Naze to compliment our Geography unit of work: Fieldwork Coasts.

End of year production

Happily, we have had the go-ahead to mark the end of the school year in our traditional way, with a special show. 

Where to start? Home-schooling, empty supermarket shelves, social-distancing, bubbles, tiers, facemasks, not being able to hug our grandparents…these have been extraordinary and challenging times! But through it all, heroes have emerged and with a strength of spirit, hope in our hearts and a sense of humour, we are coming out the other side. So, what better way to commemorate our place in history than with a bloomin’ good sing-song!

Bikeability

Last month, the majority of the Year 6 children took part in Bikeability Level 2 training. The Bikeability Level 2 course aims to develop riders’ skills and confidence for cycling on single-lane roads and simple junctions with mostly moderate motor traffic flows (where riders encounter vehicles with progressively greater frequency in each module). It also prepares riders for cycling on more complex, often busier or faster roads and junctions. Bikeability is government-recognised, practical and professional training; cyclists are definitely more skilled and confident once they’ve taken part. Well done to all the children who have successfully completed this training. We hope you have found it helpful and worthwhile.
