Welcome to Scorpions Class

Arthog – 2024/25

Looking ahead for our biennial Arthog visit, which is due to take place in the academic year 2024/25, we have found there is very limited availability at our preferred dates – with the only suitable available date being November 2024. There has also been a significant increase in the cost of this per pupil compared to previous years – which is £373 per pupils (before adding transport costs). We have been exploring further options – but have found that these are all coming up as just as much – or, in some cases, significantly more. We are going to look into how we can, as a school, help minimising the cost of this cost for yourselves.

 

Before we make our booking official, we would like to gauge the interest level of parents of current Year 4 and Year 5 parents. If you are a parent of a Year 4 or 5, we’d very much appreciate if you could fill in the following Microsoft Form: https://forms.office.com/e/aLrS7aXjvX

Welcome to our Class: Scorpions

Our teacher is Mr Harley, and we have 26 children in our class this year – a mix of year 5 and 6 pupils. Our topic this term is VIkings.

 

Class Rules and Weekly Timetable

Scorpions will be doing P.E. on Tuesdays and Thursdays – alongside the year 5s from Bees. However, this day may change depending on certain events or circumstances.

 

All of KS2 swim in the Autumn Term.

Home Tasks

Scorpions’ home tasks are to read regularly and to practise spellings and times tables. We currently use interactive online games – which are particularly effective for helping with both practising spellings and times tables. Links to Times Tables Rockstars and Spelling Shed can be found below. See Letter outlining homework expectations for expectations and Homework Policy for further details.

Assessment

Towards the end of year 6, pupils participate in Statutory Assessment Tests (commonly SATs) for reading, maths and grammar, punctuation & spelling. These tests are simply assessing against learning from KS2. There is no need for any additional work for these – other that what goes on in normal lessons at school and home tasks (reading daily, Spelling Shed and TTRS). Here is a video to give you more information on these tests:-
