'To learn you must want to be taught' Proverbs 12:1

 

Mrs Summerton and Mrs Tickle are pleased to welcome you to Year 5/6.

Here are a few points to help you during the year:

  • Homework, usually a piece of English and a piece of Maths, is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in on Monday morning
  • Spellings are given out every Monday and are the tested the following Monday
  • Reading books are collected on Mondays and Fridays. Children are expected to read each night at home. The reading record should be signed to say that this has been done
  • P.E kits should remain in school during term time. P.E days are Monday and Friday

 

Autumn Term

R.E will focus on family and also on belonging. We will look at inspirational people and organisations as well as thinking carefully about marriage and commitment.

In English we will be studying a range of genres and will be using several different texts to help us. These include Skellig by David Almond and A Christmas carol by Charles Dickens

In Maths we will be working hard on the four operations addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning about fractions, percentages and decimals.

We will be learning all about the Ancient Greeks this term. This will include writing a playscript and making a Greek tragedy/comedy mask using mod-roc.
