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 Mayan Civilization and in Science we are learning all about light and how we see things.
This term we will cover:
In English our topics are:
In Spanish we will cover the alphabet, places and giving directions.
In art we are investigating the Great Artist L.S Lowry.
In DT our focus this term is food.
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.
