Years 5 & 6 Redwoods

Redwoods class is the home to the oldest children in our school – Years 5 and 6.

As role models for younger children, Redwoods take their whole school responsibilities seriously; they are expected to model excellent behaviour, a positive attitude towards school and learning, and take pride in their work at all times.

Learning in Redwoods is engaging and challenging. Redwoods children are exposed to a variety of teaching styles which ensure all children are excited and enthused in their learning, make the maximum possible progress while also developing independence.

Mr Abraham teaches Redwoods.

PE lessons are every Monday with Mr Abraham and Wednesdays with Mr Tanner (PE teacher).  
Please ensure that PE kit is worn to school on these days.

Homework is designed to encourage independence.  Our expectations are as follows:

- Reading on a daily basis (minimum of 15 minutes per day)

- Spellings taken from the Y5/6 and/or Y3/4 list (follow links below)

- Times Tables practice - this should include at least 15 x 1 minute sessions on TT Rock Stars (children all have their unique user ID and password which can be used to access from home)

- Project learning themed around our termly topic where the children will be able to choose from a range of activities designed to take their learning out of the classroom.


If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. The best time to speak to us is at the end of the day, but if it is urgent, please leave a message at the office and we will get back to you at our earliest convenience or email: adminbearnes@thelink.academy 

Redwoods Weekly Update - 24th May

Dear parents,

It’s the end of the half-term and we have had a really fun week wrapping up our units of learning. In English, we finished publishing our non-chronological reports as you can see in the photos! In maths, we are continuing to learn about angles and how to calculate angles around a point or a straight line.

In science, we designed our own machines using a variety of mechanisms, and in topic we used evidence to discuss what might have happened to the Maya civilization. In art, we finished creating our miniature worlds and in Jigsaw we learned how to use the internet safely and responsibly.

Well done to our star of the week, Alfie, who wrote an amazing report in English and also supported his classmates with their writing.

Another well done to Younus, who received our ‘Random Act of Kindness’ award for being an outstanding referee when he was supporting the Sycamore class with their invasion games trip on Wednesday.

Have a lovely half-term break!

Mr. Abraham
