This is our Y5 and Y6 class. The class teacher is Mrs Burnett and the teaching assistant is Mrs Riggs.
Welcome back! I hope you had a wonderful summer break.
In terms 1 & 2 we will be focussing our topic lessons on World War II. We will be looking at the reasons why the war broke out, the Blitz, evacuation, women in war, the Home Front and rationing.
We will be reading Goodnight Mr Tom and linking it to our English and topic lessons. As well as developing comprehension, we will be using the text to write character and setting descriptions, diaries, letters and newspapers.
In Science we will be looking at Properties of Material, which will included how materials can change state. We will be investigating and testing different types of materials and classifying them using scientific vocabulary.
Please encourage your child to read every night and sign their planner which they are required to bring in every day. Please do use the planner as a form of communication to myself and/or Mrs Riggs. Homework is handed out on Friday and should be completed and brought back to school on or before the following Friday. We will be using Mathletics for Maths homework and logins will be sent home in the first few weeks of term.
PE is on Wednesday afternoons with Hockey and Outdoor Learning on a Thursday.
It looks to be a very busy and exciting term!
