We are the oldest children in the school and are fantastic role models for the younger children.
Each school day starts with a maths lesson. In year 5 and 6 we love maths, especially solving complex problems and practical activities! After break, we have English! We work on our reading and comprehension skills as well as writing and grammar. Our topic this term is Ancient Greece and in Science we are learning all about living things and their habitats.
This term we will cover:
In English our topics are:
Our topic in Spanish is food/drink – healthy or not, likes and dislikes.
In art we are investigating the Great Artist, Georgia O'Keefe.
In DT our focus this term is textiles.
In computing we are learning all about coding and how to use online computer software safely.
Homework and Spellings
Homework will usually be given on Tuesday, due in for the following Tuesday. Spellings are given once a week and spelling tests are on Tuesday. Please can I stress how important it is that children in year 5 and 6 work on their times tables. Being rapid and accurate with times tables is so important for all areas of maths! Alongside this, children are expected to read either their school reading book if they have one or their own books at home.
