We are delighted to welcome you to Falcon Class page where you can see what we have been up to in the classroom. We are a mixed year 5 and 6 class. We are taught by Mrs Sager and are supported in our learning by Mrs Edwards, Mrs Cook and Mrs Pepler at different times. We are an enthusiastic and curious class who love learning so take a look at our termly pages to see what we have been up to. Our motto for the year is "Active and Proactive" and we have set ourselves a challenge for the year ahead. We aim to complete at least a part of the daily mile and will combine the distance covered to see whether we can reach as far as Australia by the end of the year.
During our planning time on a Thursday morning, Falcon class will be taught by Mrs Edwards
Falcon Class will have PE on Thursday and Friday and should bring their PE kit to school on these days to change in to; however, in order to allow flexibility in the timetable, please ensure PE kits are brought in to school everyday. PE kit consists of black joggers/shorts, a plain T shirt in their house colour and their Paxcroft jumper. Paxcroft hoodies are also available to buy for PE and other outdoor activities.
I hugely appreciate the support you give your child in their learning and wholeheartedly believe that reading is at the heart of your child's learning. Please find below the recommended reading lists for year 5 and 6 or visit our English Curriculum page for advice on how to support your child further in their reading.
Children will be issued with a green homework diary where they can keep a record of reading or other activities they have done at home.
Welcome back to school for our first term! We hope that you have all had a very restful and enjoyable summer despite the weather. We have had a brilliant start to the year and we are all very much looking forward to another busy and exciting year ahead. We will be holding a ‘Meet the Teacher’ session on Wednesday 13th September when we hope to meet as many of you as possible
This has been a busy week in 5/6 with lots of important elections about to take place. The children will be voting for their House Captains on Friday 15th September and for the Year 5 Youth Parliamentarian next week. It is great that we have had so many children stepping up, wanting to hold important roles in the school and wider community. In our topic lessons this week we have been learning about British Values – Democracy, Rule of Law, Mutual respect and Tolerance and Individual Liberty. We have also discussed the concept of Culture. We had our first RE day on Wednesday and investigated the question Who has made a difference because of their faith or beliefs? During the course of the day we learned about many inspirational people including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Gandhi, Malala Yusufzai as well as Sir David Attenborough, Greta Thunberg amongst others. In English, we explored how the main character in The Arrival felt at significant points his journey before writing a cold task – a letter to his cherished family. In Guided Reading, we are reading the Arrival and beginning to make inferences from the illustrations. In Maths, we are all working on place value and extending our knowledge of numbers and the number system. Again, we have been impressed by the children’s enthusiasm and engagement.
