Cavendish 2018 - 2019

Mr Crompton

Welcome to Cavendish Class;  the home of Year 5 and 6! 

This term our topic is "Coast".

One of the most dynamic environments on earth is where the land meets the sea and we will be looking closely at how it has changed over time and is still changing today. 

With a particular focus on human geography, we will take a visit to Blackpool and see how humans have developed and evolved our coastline in order to utilised it as a tourist destination. We will also be looking at how, in other parts of the country, the coastine is used to serve different purposes. 

Cavendish PE Sessions

This year PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday afternoon. In addition, we will swimming every Wednesday afternoon for the first 10 weeks of term.

Home Learning
Not less homework. Just different homework. Times tables and reading every night as a minimum.

Additional (optional) maths homework will also be uploaded to this page each week. 

Literacy Support
Children are encouraged to 'up-level' their work by using CPOW Pyramids.The children are aware of whereabouts on each pyramid they should be aiming in order to progress.
