Cavendish 2019 - 2020

Mr Crompton

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

This term our topic is "Beyond Limits".

Our topics this term will be based on two books: Shackleton's Journey by William Grill and King Kong by Anthony Browne. Both texts will drive our learning as we explore 'the extreme' in different ways.   

Cavendish PE Sessions

This year PE will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon.


Cavendish Forest School Sessions

The children will be enjoying Forest School every Monday afternoon - don't forget your waterproofs! 


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

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

Year 6 SATs Preparation

Our Year 6 children will also start getting some SATs preparation material to start working on at home - previous Year 6 groups have found these to be extremely beneficial! 

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.

The CPOW Pyramids can be found below, as can Self-Assessment sheets and Special Sentence guidance.
