Welcome to Falcon Class page.!

We are a mixed Year 5 and 6 class.

Our teacher is Mrs Sager and we are supported in our learning by Mrs Evans.

We are a lively, active and curious class. 

On our term pages you can find out about all the fantastic things we have been doing and learning about, as well as see the class in action through photographs of some of our more hands-on sessions.

Best regards from 

Mrs Sager  and Mrs Evans

 

News Updates

W.B 9.5.22

This has been an incredibly busy week for everyone in Year 5 and 6. Our Year 6 have been working hard on their Sats tests during the mornings, whilst Year 5 have been working on an exciting project with Mr Farrell and Miss Wyatt.  In Computing, the Year 5s have been learning about different computing platforms and networks, investigating how computers communicate with each other. Year 5 have also been learning programming skills using the programme Scratch.  Linked with our Science topic of Darwin and Evolution, Year 5 have been learning about the Galapagos Islands; how the animals have evolved and adapted to the prevailing conditions of each unique island.  Year 5 went on to imagine the discovery of another island in the Galapagos, what its flora and fauna would be like and how the animals are adapted to their habitat. The children now know what their end of year production will be and auditions will be held next week for Year 6. We are sure it is going to be an amazing show.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

WB 3.5. 22

We hope you had a fantastic Bank Holiday Weekend !  Mrs Shaw will be accompanying    children from the choir to perform at Young Voices  in Birmingham on 3rd May and we  hope they enjoy the experience immensely. Back in Falcon, this week we will be checking up on the biodegradability experiment we set up  during Stem Week in Term 4.  We have already been surprised by some of the changes we have noted in the specimen jars. An update will follow later.

W.B  25.4 22

Welcome back! We hope you have all had a lovely Easter break. The children have come back  refreshed and raring to get stuck into the new term's learning and our first topic is Evolution and Inheritance. From this term onwards, we will be reverting to  changing for PE at school, so it would be great if PE kits come into school at the beginning of the week and can be taken home to be washed when required. Many thanks for your help with this. In Friday's Celebration Assembly, we all enjoyed watching the recording of Paxcroft's Dance Festival entry. It was great seeing the dancers' skill and enjoyment as they performed. Very well done to all  who took part in that!

 

 

Home Learning

All the children have green homework diaries (planners), which also act as a record of their reading and general home learning.  They can also be used as a quick way of sending a message or a note into school. 

I have asked the children to make sure that these are in school every day and they are monitored on Mondays and Fridays. This is to help the children to be more organised in their approach to their learning, which will help them when they move on to Secondary School.   The children are encouraged to use the planners to record their reading, any spelling practice they do as well as any time  they spend on TT Rockstars, Spelling Frame or Mathletics. 

The children have Mathletics and TT Rockstars log ons for maths activities, as well as a Spelling Frame log on so  they can also practise at home. 

All  children  have individual spelling lists to learn from the statutory words. Every other week, we investigate a spelling pattern or rule. 

Thank you for your continued support with home learning

 

At Paxcroft, we firmly believe that reading fundamentally important to children's development. Regular reading with your  child is a great way to support them with their fluency and comprehension skills. Please find below recommended book reads for the two year groups  as well as some suggestions to help develop your child's comprehensions skills.
