Years 5 & 6 Redwoods

WELCOME TO 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.

Ms Clarke teaches Redwoods Monday - Thursday, assisted by Mrs Fraser. On a Friday morning, Mrs Hawling teaches arithmetic, PE and computing. Friday afternoons are led by Mrs Fraser.
 
Our topic for the Autumn term is VICTORIANS. Please follow the link below to our topic web.
  

PE lessons are every Monday with Coach Tayler and Friday mornings with Mrs Hawling. 
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 
The Lion and the Unicorn
 
Pupils in Redwoods have let their imaginations go wild by creating a new ending to 'The Lion and the Unicorn' by Shirley Hughes.
 
We wanted to share a couple of videos that we are really proud of!
