Year 5/ 6 Overview

At Caen we have two Year 5 and two Year 6 classes. Year 5 are taught by Mrs Rivenberg and Mrs Lapish/ Mrs Braund; and Year 6 are taught by Miss Hockin and Mrs Robinson. Mrs Arnold teaches in Mrs Robinson's class on a Monday. The children will also be taught weekly by Mr Harvey for computing and Miss Fogarty for PE. Y5 and 6 also benefit from specialist French teaching on a weekly basis from Mrs Reed. You can download the current term's learning overview below.

For maths the school is planning using the White Rose scheme of work ( https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ ) and teachers also use a variety of other resources such as Nrich ( http://nrich.maths.org ) and the National Centre for the Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics ( http://www.nctem.org.uk ). These sites all have free to download resources and materials should parents be interested and all the White Rose Maths materials are free to download. On the Nrich site you can search by maths topic or age. Furthermore all children have their own Times Table Rock Stars login - please do use daily. We also have access to My Maths ( https://www.mymaths.co.uk/ ). The school login is: Braunton1 and the password is: tangent296. There are lessons and games for all stages and levels - just ensure that the curriculum drop down menu (left-hand side) is set to 'English National Curriuculum'.

For reading we encourage children to challenge themselves with the Pie Corbett Reading Spine. Pie Corbett is recognised as one of the pre-eminent educationalists with regards to literacy and he has selected appropriate books for every age group. These can be found on the Scholastic site here: https://www.scholastic.co.uk/piecorbett/resources . Below we have also included recommended reads for each year group - these are all high quality texts that will give your child a rich and varied diet. Oxford Owl have opened up their online reading platform for all here: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/ . Devon Libraries has a a welath of ebooks and they can be found here: https://librariesunlimited.overdrive.com/ .
