Rhinos

Rhinos’ Class are in the final year of primary school. Working in the class are two teachers, Ms Rogers and Miss Brear, as well as being supported by Ms Wood and Ms Ramsden.

Our doors open at 8.50am, though morning sessions begin at 9am and finish at 12.30pm. In the mornings the class is split into two separate groups (Javans and Sumatrans who take turns being taught Maths and English in two smaller groups). Aftaernoon sessions start at 1.15pm and end at 3.15pm. In the afternoons upper key stage two (year five and six) split into three groups to be taught topic related work, science, computing, modern foreign languages, art, design technology, music, religious education and physical education and change on a termly basis. These sessions are led by a member of the teaching staff from year five/six while the other teachers work in smaller groups to accelerate learning in the core curriculum areas.

Rhinos have two PE sessions a week and these take place on either Monday, Tuesday or Thursday afternoons. Please ensure children bring a PE kit: a plain white t-shirt/top and plain black shorts/tracksuit trousers/leggings as well as a pair of suitable trainers.

Maths and English homework is given out on Fridays and expected to be completed and returned on the following Monday. In addition, each Monday a list of differentiated spellings are given out to be learned before a spelling test on Friday. Children are expected to read daily and return their completed reading diary each morning, this is monitored by the class teacher.

During the second full week of May 2019, Year 6 pupil will participate in the Government Statutory End of Year Stage Tests (SAT’s).

At the end of the year, Year 6 plan a full day trip out as a reward to all children, who have worked hard, been responsible and demonstrated good behaviour throughout the year. Although we ask for a relatively small contribution from parents/carers, children are expected as part of their enterprise work, to plan and fundraise for the trip (raising the majority of the cost themselves).

In the last half term, children will spend time planning, rehearsing and producing an end of year performance that parents/carers will be invited to watch in the last week of term.

Throughout school, each year group have a set of English and Maths non-negotiables (which are targets that are based on basic skills relative to the year group of the child). These are a key focus designed to ensure that your child can readily access more challenging work. These are assessed regularly and changed termly. Your child may be given some of these non-negotiable targets to consolidate at home.
