Gorefield Primary Academy

Caring, sharing, thinking, learning


The final term...and what a fantastic term it will be!  Year 6 get to show off how fabulous they are during Sat's weeks, there is the King's Coronation party, the leaver's party and loads more.

In Samoa Class Miss D Freeburn, Mrs J McHaffie, Mrs M Hewitt, Mrs F Bullard and Mrs C Stott, work with the children.

On our class page you will find Knowledge organisers and an overview.  These documents are intended to give you an insight as to what your children will be learning.

There is also a Home Learning (homework) attached below which looks specifically at our current topics.  This has changed slightly this year and is now in the form of a project that can be done weekly or all together over a weekend - whichever suits!

Children also have the opportunity to earn rewards for reading every day, at home, for 20 minutes.  We call this The Wacky Races - the children's contributions to their reading journey here are also acknowledged by a certificate.  Whilst we continue to encourage 20 minutes, the children have the option to read more or less and cash in their minutes for rewards - ask your child about this.

Although we no longer have spelling tests the children are working through the Year 5 and 6 Statutory Word list as well as have weekly spelling lessons based around spelling patterns.  They are encouraged to use these words, alongside the powerful vocabulary of Mrs Wordsmith, in both their English and cross curricular work.

 The rapid recall of the multiplication tables, and their inverse, is really important in our Math's work so rehearsing them will really help.  The children can all access TT Rockstar's at home with their own log on and also access to enjoy math's games and a Multiplication Times tables check.  Every day the children will attempt to progress on their times tables journey, please help them to do this by encouraging them to practice.

PE will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Children should come into school in their uniform on these days as normal and bring their kit with them to change into.
