St Nicholas C of E Primary School East Challow

A caring community where all pupils are valued and achieve well.

Panther Class Year 5 and 6

Panther Class


As the children come towards the end of their primary education, Panther class offers

many opportunities for them to continue to develop their academic and life skills.


Opportunities such as a 5 day outdoor adventure residential,

cycle proficiency training, visits to IMPS and Junior Citizen

complement Academy-wide opportunities such as the Mini Speaks competition.


Alongside all of this the children explore a variety of

History, Geography, Science and D&T focussed topics as well as

strengthening their maths, reading and writing skills in order to be well prepared

for their transition to secondary school.

Term 5

This term, Panther class are finding innovative ways of continuing our learning at home.  We are travelling (virtually) of course to other countries via our geography project, consolidating our learning about animals and plants, and allowing our minds to expand by pondering questions set by an ex-NASA employee! 

We are continuing to develop our writing expertise by trying different creative writing techniques for writing setting descriptions that transport our readers to our imaginary worlds. We are testing that we are understanding what we've learned by doing Accelerated Reader quizzes, TTRS practise and reading comprehensions too. 

We have lots of maths activities to do as well, some are practising facts that we need to remember and others are problems which mean we need to think about how we can use what we know to solve them.


Keeping connected to our school community is really important to us so we are sharing our learning with our teachers, and we have the opportunity to take a planted flower to decorate the outside of our school so that people on their daily walk know we're thinking of others.


Remember, all activities on our home learning page can be done at your, and your child's pace and you are free to pick and choose what you would like to get involved in.  There are many different activities just to give a variety but it is not the expectation that you complete them all. The priority is well being for everyone during this challenging time!   


Take care and stay safe at home.
