Hello and welcome to our class pages! Mrs Tester, Mrs Rolfe, Mrs Roberts and the children in Rousham class are excited to share with you all the work they have been completing in class along with news regarding clubs, extra-curricular opportunities and much more!
This term we launch our new topic: ‘Much ado about the Tudors’ which will see us delving head first into this important aspect of British History. We will be learning about the famous monarchs who reined at this time, visiting Sulgrave Manor (a local Tudor Manor), making Tudor recipes and finding out about Crime and Punishment during this era!
We will be working hard all year to add work to the ‘Golden Peg of Pride!’ Mrs Tester is always on the look out for pieces of work to display for everyone to see!
Just a few reminders:
We expect children to be reading at least four to five times a week at home from a variety of text types and discussing what they have read with an adult at home. Please note down any reading completed at home in the reading log. Please do not hesitate speak to me about advice on appropriate reading books or visit our reading page of the website to see our ‘100 Great Books to Read at Tackley’ for more inspiration.
It is also important that children in Rousham know all of their times tables. The children will be tested once a week as part of our 100 club- so any support you can give them at home in continuing to practice their tables is much appreciated.
Children will continue to receive spellings each week; they will learn spellings throughout the week in school with a list of words being sent home to work on before an in school spelling test. Although children will have spent time working on their spellings throughout the week it is important that they have time to reinforce any words that they might find tricky at home.
Each week the children receive a piece of either English, Maths or Topic homework based on work covered during the week in school. This is to be completed in their green homework books.
Most children go to The Marlborough School for Year 7. Should you be going to another school at the end of year six we will ensure that your transition to your new school is as smooth as possible.
For more information about the transition to Marlborough please see their website.
