A big welcome to our classroom. We have a daily routine of teaching both Maths and Literacy in the morning sessions. We have weekly topics in Maths which through the academic year, covers the Year 5 National Curriculum .We have recently introduced ‘TT Rock stars’ initiative to support and get out children buzzing about their multiplication tables, the root to all maths.
In Literacy we use ‘Power of Reading’ texts to support the teaching of the required objectives in the National Curriculum to include grammar, punctuation and spelling. The books we use are ‘Kensuke Kingdom’, ‘Cosmic Disco’, ‘Boys in the Girls Bathroom’ and ‘Storm breaker.’ All amazing books that inspire the learning of our children.
Afternoon sessions consist of RE, PSHE, Science, Humanities, PE, French, Art and Music.
In addition to these subjects, we have daily Guided Reading sessions, which are focused around a class text, which includes’ Varjak Paw’, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Carrie’s War’. All fabulous books which motivate the children. They are set four tasks at the beginning of the week to complete centred on the specific book.
Science is taught throughout the academic year covering Earth and Space,( includes a trip to The Winchester Science Centre and Planetarium )Materials, ( includes a trip to our local brick factory) Forces, Circle of life which includes Growing up and Growing old and finally, a very keen favourite with the children ‘Super Scientists’. ‘Super Scientists’ enables the children to become Forensic Scientists for the day and they have to solve crimes and mysteries. Such an exciting day.
Humanities involves the teaching of History, We cover The Tudors, The Anglo Saxons and The Mayans. In Geography, we cover Settlements, Locational Knowledge and Human and Physical Geography.
Every term we celebrate the children’s achievement and success’s with an Enrichment afternoon. This in the past has included a whole school pantomime, visiting sportsman and woman, working with children on a specific skill and charitable organisations. All this, as well as children taking part in their chosen activities each term.
As well as this reward, within school and class we have a praise point system, where children are awarded with daily praise points for great work, conduct around school, helping each other and just being a good friend.
We often have visitors to the classroom, talking to the children about safer use of the internet, how to keep safe outside of school, all very worthwhile visits.
As a church school, we have daily assemblies, one afternoon a week we have our own class assembly which is themed around our school values.
