Class 4 – Year 5 / 6

Teachers: Mr Torrie, Mr Gibbons & Mrs Spencer

Welcome to Class 4!

As we embark on the final stretch of the summer term, all three Class 4 teachers would like to say a huge WELL DONE to all children and parents for doing a superb job at home schooling!

It's not been any easy task but the work you've done to date is fantastic and we hope you can keep it up for a few more weeks (or until we get back to school and back to normality).

We are continuing to upload a 'Home Learning' sheet each week which has a range of core subject and foundation subject activities along with website links. These sheets are updated weekly and set out what we would like you to do in your home learning. If anything on there is unclear or you need any help, please get in touch straight away.

If you need to contact us or share work with us or show us what you have been up to, don't forget our class email is – calveley4@actonceprimary.net

If you wish to access our Maths No problem Singapore Maths scheme, please email our class email and we will create you a login.

Year 6: You may wish to complete some of these practice SATs papers that are available online – please only do the 2016 Sample and onwards as these are on the new curriculum. Year 5, please do not complete these as you will be doing these next year!

Here is the link: SATs Papers

Topic work: Our topic this half term is going to be 'Run a Restaurant'. Please see below for the suggested projects and activities to complete at home over the coming weeks. Some of these are going to take a longer period of time and will therefore need to be spread over a number of days.

  • Investigate and decide if Fair Trade is a good thing for buyers. Does it benefit everyone? Children could complete a PowerPoint presentation on this, or do it on paper.
  • Study where our food comes from – try and plan a meal that is totally from the UK or even harder, from Cheshire!
  • Look at what is grown where around the globe, looking at main livestock and crops of a country from each continent.
  • Study main imports and exports of UK – why do we have too much of exports and not enough of our own, so are forced to import others?

Ideas for keeping active

It is really important that we are all staying active in this difficult time. We hope your still getting out for some daily exercise with your family. There are a number of other ways to stay active – Joe Wickes has a 30 minute workout each day from 9am on his youtube channel. The Crewe and Nantwich Sports partnership are uploading a daily challenge on their twitter feed which is @candnssp. We have attached a couple of files with nice activities to try at home. There is also a really nice set of videos on Youtube created by PE teachers across the country for families to try at home under the hashtag #thisispe – We'd love to see some videos of any of the things you've been doing to stay in active during 'lockdown.'

Important Notices:

  • Please encourage your child to read at home regularly and write what they have read in their diaries. If they are unsure what to read, come and speak to us and we will recommend something! Reading at home makes an enormous difference to their comprehension and writing work in school.
  • Short arithmetic problems and spelling activities will completed each morning
  • We will also add interesting websites linked to our topic where appropriate.
  • Active 30 is continuing at the usual time – please ensure your PE kit is in school each day and is suitable for wet weather too!
  • Year 6s – Please bring your grey revision guides each Friday so you can review set homework and record new revision tasks. If you have any questions about your work, speak to us in the week and we will help you.
