Bedruthan Class is a year 5 and 6 mixed aged class. Our teachers are Mrs Goulbourn (Monday to Wednesday) and Mrs Welch (Thursday and Friday). Our teachers are assisted by Mrs Medlin (Senior Teaching Assistant), Mr Barnes and Miss Baseley (mornings).
We follow the Inspire curriculum which adopts a cross-curricular approach linking learning and making it fun and purposeful. Topics last for six weeks in order to sustain interest and enthusiasm. Maths stands alone and all pupils follow the National Curriculum programmes of study. English is taught through the Inspire curriculum with an emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPAG for short!). A list of words that pupils should be able to spell correctly in their writing, by the end of upper Key Stage 2 can be found by clicking the following link: Spelling Appendix years 5 and 6 from NC 2014
Homework: At the beginning of each new topic our teachers send home a grid of homework suggestions linked to our topic. We can pick and choose from the suggestions and earn points for each piece of homework we complete. As well as earning points we also have our homework displayed on the board outside our classroom (take a look next time you pass). In addition to our topic homework there is the daily expectation to read and to learn the weekly spellings and times tables ready for the Friday test.
