Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Falcons!
Falcons Class is Upper Key Stage Two with Year 5 and 6 children. This year Falcons will be taught by Miss Williams with the support of Mrs. Hateley (Teaching Assistant) for four mornings a week. This is going to be a very exciting year with lots of fun things planned as well as a great deal of learning too!
Our topic for this term is World War 2 and we have begun by looking at why the war began and which countries were involved. We are fortunate that very soon we will have a visitor in school to run a WW2 workshop for the children, funded by the Royal Mail! For our English, we are basing our learning around the text, 'Letters from the Lighthouse,' by Emma Carroll. So far this book seems to be a hit with the children and I hope they continue to enjoy it as much as I do!
Children are encouraged to read a range of texts and as often as they can in Upper Key Stage 2. They have free choice what they read and this could be books, magazines, newspapers etc. Please encourage your child in their reading as this has a positive impact on their learning in general.
Times tables and Spelling
Times tables and spelling tests will be completed on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their spelling sentences in school on this day.
Children will have PE lessons on a Thursday and Friday afternoon.
Please ensure that a full kit is in school on these days. Jewellery should be removed and long hair must be tied back. Thank you.
Children should have a water bottle, containing either water or squash only, in school each day please.
