Physical Education:

Class 6 PE days are Monday and Thursday. PE kit should be worn to and from school on these days to prevent the need for changing. Please make sure that tracksuits are worn in cold weather and that children have suitable trainers which support their ankles. Long hair must be tied up, earrings will need to be removed or taped up and nails must be kept short to avoid injury to themselves or other pupils during practical sessions.

 

 

Homework:

Homework will be set via Purple Mash, BugClub, Timestable Rockstars or SATS Companion on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday. Children will write their homework in their planner (Year 5&6) or a note will be sent home giving details of the homework set, plus your teacher will update Class Dojo with a homework message each week. If you cannot access any of these online platforms, you will need to inform your child’s teacher asap who will arrange for them to complete their homework in school on their class' ‘Homework Club’ day. On this day, technology will be available for children to complete their homework in school. 

 

 

Spellings: 

Each week, children will learn a new spelling rule during our Read, Write Inc, spelling sessions. The children receive their individual spellings each week from their Read Write Inc teacher and will be tested on these the following week at the beginning of a new spelling rule. Children will be rewarded with a dojo point for full marks on their spelling test (and an extra golden token if they beat their personal best score). Children will receive a new set of spellings on a Monday and will be tested the following

Monday.

 

 

Times tables:

It is essential that children practise their timetables regularly. We will complete an arithmetic quiz each week on a Tuesday and homework will be set on Timestables Rockstars each day. Children will be expected to get their planner signed to show they have used Timestables Rockstars and those who do will be rewarded with dojo points. 

 

 

Reading: 

The children are expected to read their school reading book every day for at least 15 minutes. This will need to be recorded in their planner. When your child has completed their book they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher, who will then allow them to change their reading book. Children will have regular opportunities to change their reading books. No library books will be available initially. 

Our topic this half term is:

Being Me In My World

 

 

 

 

Age- appropriate texts

 

Across the whole of Renhold Primary School, we encourage the reading of age-appropriate class texts to inspire the imagination of the children and to create high quality writing opportunities. All books that we have chosen are recommended by literary persons, who deem them age-appropriate.

In Years 5 and 6, this can sometimes mean that some language within chosen texts needs further explanation to the children. As teachers, we would explain the use and appropriateness of some language we come across in our texts to allow the children to understand why it has been used and in which context it is meant.

As we continue to learn remotely, as parents and carers, you may wish to explain the use of this language to your child before completing an activity. If you need any support with doing so, please contact your child’s teacher who will be happy to help.
