Years 5 and 6

A creative timetable has been developed and as many cross curricular links are made as possible.

The National Curriculum for Mathematics and Literacy are followed, and the pupils are regularly assessed against the new curriculum standards. Targets are discussed with individual pupils.

The class has a two year curriculum map so that topics will not be repeated during the time the pupils are in this class.

 

 

The pupils are encouraged to be independent in their learning and take a pride in their work.

Homework is set weekly and is mainly linked to Maths or Literacy learning objectives for that week. A Literacy focus is usually used when a themed piece of homework is set on a half termly basis.

We expect the pupils to read each evening (building fluency and understanding in reading is vital to ensure children are able readers) and to learn spellings and multiplication tables. We have taken pride in using the Tackling Tables Scheme so lots of practise with times tables is key!

Often homework may involve research, and support from parents is valued.

Pupils who need extra help with their work are supported in the classroom whenever possible.

We also put on annual Summer Productions in which the children have opportunities to have key acting roles and perform in front of their friends and family. Previous productions we have done include ‘Minibeast Madness’ ‘Dick Whittington’ and ‘Robin Hood’.

Cross Country November 2019

@ West Norfolk Rugby Club

On Tuesday 20 boys and girls, from years 2-6, took part in this event alongside children from 17 other schools. On arriving it was dry though cold but once the intructions for the morning were out of the way the rain began and the wind got up. It proved to be rather unpleasant and conditions underfoot slippery but the children carried on racing, producing some good results, all finishing in the top 25 for their respective group. The races for year 2 were more for fun but places were given out and they all finished in the top 20 which was a brilliant result. For the other year groups, only the top 10 placed children go on, to the next round in January. Elliot finished 10th and goes forward but there were several children who finished very close in 11th, 12th and 13th places.

Despite the awful weather they said they had enjoyed taking part but were glad to get back in the warm after, I was too! Thank you to Mrs Day for coming along.

Well done!

Elliot, Lilly, Kaden, Henry, Elizabeth, Tabitha, Leyla, Sally-Louise, Cole, Dexter, Joshua, Harriet, Harry, Charlie, Max, Karlya, Neve, Lenny, George and Foster.

Eight boys and girls took part in this multi-cluster development festival and tournament event; it was the first time the event had been held in this way. Nineteen teams took part in the tournament, covering five pools; Sandringham’s included the eventual Plate, Necton and Cup, South Wootton winners. It was a hard group and on finishing our matches ended up playing in the Plate competition. As the competition progressed so did our play, in our final two matches, we drew and won which meant we finished joint 9th.  It was a tough but thoroughly enjoyable day in the autumn sunshine where our children tried their best, were good sportsmen and grew in confidence. Thank you to Mrs Massen and Mrs Collison for accompanying them.

Well Done! Kaden, Elliot, Henry, Tabitha, Chloe, Ella, Lilly and Clara
