Miss Bellis

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

Our topic this term will be Imprisoned. We will be learning all about the transatlantic slave trade and exploring a range of historical sources.

In science we will learn about living things and the environment, thinking about natural selection and things that influence change.


Cavendish PE Sessions

This term PE will be on a Monday and Friday afternoon. 


Cavendish Outdoor learning Sessions

The children will be enjoying Outdoor learning every Thursday afternoon. The first session of the new academic year will be on Thursday 14th September. 

Please ensure children are bringing appropriate clothing and footwear every Thursday.


Cavendish Home Learning

Each week there will be spellings to learn and daily reading. Spellings will be available from the week beginning 11.09.23. We will have a spelling test and a 30 in 30 test each Friday.

Children are expected to read every night and are able to change their books when required. They should complete one of the reading comprehension tasks from the back of their reading record each week. Reading records should be brought into school every day and will be checked weekly.

Each child has access to EdShed, Bug Club, Times Tables Rockstars and SATs bootcamp. Children should access one of these digital resources every day in addition to reading.


Year 6 SATs Preparation

We are now using SATS Boot Camp to help our Year 5 and 6 children to prepare for SATS. Please ensure your child regularly accesses the 'Revise' tab on the website to recap a variety of Maths and English topics.
