Miss Howson's Class
Miss Howson’s Year 5/6 Class
Miss Howson teaches Mondays to Thursdays, Mr Shoesmith teaches every Friday. Mrs Radmall is our wonderful TA. She is in class all week and teaches PPA.
In our Year 5/6 class, we strive to work really hard whilst also having fun – this is the way, we hope to achieve fantastic learning and progress!
We have aspirational class targets for reading and Maths and all the children have their own personal learning targets which we review and update every half term.
Our mission statement is: 'It is our choices that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities'.
Lesson start and end times are 8:55 am to 3:30 pm:
Our Entrance and exit
Children will enter the main school gate and immediately turn left through the 'tractor gate'. Then they will enter the school building through the year 5/6 door. At the end of the day, children will leave through the same door. Parents of children in my class should wait around the perimeter of the school playground.
We set homework each Monday to be completed by the following Friday.
This will include:
- One doodle maths added extra task. (Children can still access the Doodle 7 a day as many times a week as they would like if they wish to.)
- Two Reading Plus 'reading assignment' sessions of approximately 30mins each per week.
- Spellings, which will be posted on the school website for children to practise. They will be set on Monday and tested the following Friday.
We strongly recommend that children also practise Timestables Rock Stars – as regularly as possible please.
Our PE days are Tuesday and Friday and children are required to come in their PE kits on those days.
Autumn term Topic
In the first two weeks back, as part of our whole school theme ‘Around the World in 8 Days’, Year 5 and 6 will be focusing on the country Madagascar, where they will have the opportunity to screen print, cook a range of Madagascan dishes and challenge any misconceptions they may have about the country. Later on, the children will be transported back in time to the Ancient Egyptian Era. By the end of the term, the children will have learnt about how important discoveries were made, such as the Tomb of Tutankhamen, the hierarchy of Egyptian Life, farming methods, their beliefs and rituals, before evaluating the legacy that this amazing civilisation left behind on the rest of the world
