It has been great getting to know the children over the last week they have started to settle into their new routines and all the changes this year brings.
Over the past two weeks, the children have been writing descriptive and imaginative letters, postcards and setting descriptions based on our English text: Tom’s Midnight Garden. In maths, they have been looking at place value, focusing on numbers up to 100,000.
In the afternoons the children have started to read our guided reading text: Street Child. The children have really enjoyed learning about what life was like for children during the Victorian era. In science, the children have been learning about different forces, specifically: gravity, friction and air resistance. The children have conducted a range of different experiments in groups and as a class, testing out their theories.
Our P.E day is on Monday, please send your child in wearing their P.E kit.
Homework will be coming home this Friday (11th of September 2020) and is due back in on Monday the 19th of October 2020. It is important that the children are learning and practising the Year 5/6 spelling words and also the Key Recall Facts.
Children need to bring in a named water bottle everyday.
We will be keeping our web pages regularly updated with all the exciting learning will be doing this term, so please come back and check to see what we have been up to.
If you have any questions, please do speak to the office about making an appointment to see me.
