Paxcroft Primary School


Welcome to Falcon Class. We are Year 5s and 6s. Our teacher is Miss Kane and our teaching assistant is Mrs Evans.


This term our topic is called 'It's all Greek to me'. We will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks - their lives, culture and mythology. This being an Olympic Year, we will have a special focus on the Games and their links with Ancient Greece. The topic web is below.


This term is a big one for Year 6s. SATs tests will take place in the week beginning 9th May. Whilst it is important that you do your very best, we want you to remember that these tests provide simply a snapshot of how you are performing on a given day; they do not reflect all the things that make you each individually unique and talented. Please don't worry about the tests - we know you will all do your best!



Part of our spelling scheme involves learning the words from the statutory lists which can be found in the link below. Children will also have a copy of this and some tips for how to learn their spellings in their spelling folder. Children will need this in school with them every Friday.
