Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Year 5 & 6
Dear Parents,
Welcome back to the new school year, I hope that you have had a wonderful Summer!
This year, we shall be exploring a number of fantastic Topics throughout the curriculum, starting with Inventions. We are starting off by looking at some famous inventors, such as Alexander Graham Bell, while in Science we will be developing our learning about electricity and circuits.  During this Topic we shall be attending the Gravity Fields Festival at Woolsthorpe Manor (26th September) and on 4th October spending the day exploring Forensic Science with some visitors in school.
Within our English learning, we are going to be looking at the use of recounts, figurative language in poetry and epic narratives such as Beowulf. This will allow us to look at our sentence structures in more depth and the effect of the authors choice of language and features.
In Maths, we are developing our knowledge and understanding of Place Value and the four operations, working on formal written methods, mental calculations and we will have a focus on problem solving and reasoning throughout.
PE this term will be on a Monday afternoon and on a Wednesday morning, with a sports coach who is coming in to work with the children.
On a Wednesday morning, the children will also have a music lesson using the brass instruments that they have been assigned!
I shall provide spellings on a Monday morning which will be taught throughout the week and tested on the following Monday.
Maths and English homework will be given on a Friday, to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.
I hope that the children are enjoying their first few weeks at school and that you all enjoy the exciting weeks to come!
Best wishes,
Mrs Kilius-Smith
