Chameleon Class : Mr Cowie
Welcome to the Year 5/6 Class of 2020/21
This year the class will be taught by Mr Cowie. Mrs Gerrard will be helping with Maths groups. Mrs Yakoob is our class teaching assistant and Miss Ashworth will also be working with the children on Thursday afternoons.
This term, P.E lessons will be on a Friday afternoon and all the children will need to come in their PE kits every Friday.
Maths and English homework will be sent home every Friday via Microsoft Teams. There will be a range of activities to complete, linked to the learning taking place in class. New spellings will be sent home every week and will be tested on a weekly basis as we develop our understanding of different spelling rules. All homework needs to be handed in by Thursday and answers will be sent over/ feedback given.
We read frequently throughout the week, whether it is individually, shared reading or in a guided reading group. So reading for at least 10/15 minutes every day would be very beneficial. Books can be changed in school any day of the week; please ensure book reviews are completed in order to receive another book. All children must complete an 'Accelerated Reader' quiz after they have read each book.
If you ever have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask, I am always happy to help.
Each term we will study different topics. Here is the Autumn curriculum overview:
We are enjoying our new spelling scheme 'No Nonsense Spelling'. Here are some top tips to help you to learn your spelling rules at home.
