Miss Killick

Miss Killick is our Year 5 & 6 teacher.

Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

 

Homework due in Wednesday 22nd November:

Y5- pages 15, 16 and 17 (division)

Y6- Set A: Test 3 (pages 8-10)

 

 

     

Thank you for all your hard work on creating Boris, Doris and Morris! We have thoroughly enjoyed seeing your inventive robots! These are just some of the many models you have brought in. Keep your eyes peeled- the eco council will announce the winners soon.

Our topic for this term is New York. We will be incorporating this into all our learning, comparing the features of New York with Rio de Janeiro and somewhere closer to home. We will also be using this starting point to look at a range of fiction and non-fiction texts such as 'The Man Who Walked Between The Towers'.

 

Reading

Reading is a vitally important skill for your child to practise regularly. Now we are in Year 5 and 6, the emphasis when reading at home should be on your child's comprehension and understanding of the text. Reading may be from a fiction book, information text, newspaper or a magazine. I am always interested to find out what you have been reading and your recommendations are gratefully recieved as we encourage children to develop their preferences, interests and enthusiasm. Please try to read at home and question your child's understanding at least 3 times a week.

 

Home Learning

Another vitally important part of our learning in school is the recall of times tables up to 12 x 12, including the related division facts. There is also a list of words which children should be able to spell by the end of year 6 in order to meet the required standard. We aim for children to accurately spell at least 50% of these by the end of year 5 and 100% by the end of year 6. This list will be sent home in September with children's homework books. We would greatly appreciate your help at home with practising these spellings and times tables!

 

Homework

Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (SPaG), Reading comprehension and Maths homework will be issued weekly on a 3 week rota. Homework will be given on a Friday and expected to be handed back in on the following Wednesday. These will be specific pages to be completed in your child’s own individual work books. Information and extension activities will be posted on the pupils class homework page for reference.

 

Science at Middlewich High School

We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend some afternoons with the science department at Middlewich High School completing work and solving problems linked to our science learning in school. The resources and equipment available under the guidance of subject specialist teachers will provide a wonderful opportunity to inspire children.
