Miss Rachel Stickley
My name is Miss Stickley, I am the teacher of Golden Eagles. I have been teaching for almost 25 Years, 21 of which have been at Chacombe. I have a 10 Year Old daughter who keeps me on my toes. In my spare time I enjoy reading, quizes, being outside and visiting interesting places.
My door is always open so please come to see me with any questions or worries that you have.
CurriculumThis term our topic is Peasants are revolting. With the focus on Anglo Saxons, Castles and dragons.
Our PE days are Wednesdays- Outside Games and Thursdays- Dance and Gym.
Swimming for Golden Eagles is in the second half of the Summer Term.
Children have a spelling book that should always be in their book bag. Their spellings will be tested in class as a formal test every Monday. Their spellings come from the new Year 5 and 6 curriculum list. They need to practice them as often as possible at home, using as many different methods as possible - these could include the look, cover, write and check method, writing them out lots of times, saying them out loud, focusing on 1 each day etc. They will have new spellings to learn each week and it would also be great if they could practise any that they got incorrect in the test the week before.. I hope you will be able to encourage your children to practise their spellings.
It is vitally important that the children are reading regularly at home to an adult. The more they can practise at home, the better they will become. The children should aim to read five times a week. If they read five times in a week they will get a sticker and for every five stickers they will get a certificate. This Year our reading certificates will follow the theme of Castle Quest.
Each week the children are expected to learn their times tables. They will progressively work through a range of different times tables- starting with learning single times tables moving through mixed timestables, to division and decimals.
Each week the children are expected to read at least five times and record in their reading diaries.
