What we will be learning…

Reading...Our reading sessions this half term will be linked closely to our year 6 show. The children will be given a range of opportunities to explore different adaptations of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’ including moments to explore their own lines and singing parts within the production.

Home Learning Top Tip – Mrs Farmer says “Now is a great time to start selecting the books you would like to enjoy over the summer; remember you can find suggestions on our website.”

Maths...This half term, we will be focusing on our maths reasoning and problem solving skills in order to help us get ready for our maths learning at secondary school.

Home Learning Top Tip- Miss Upson suggests “Why not get ahead for secondary school by consolidating your times tables knowledge? There are so many fun online games out there!”

GRAMMAR – In our last half term, we will be consolidating our SPaG knowledge and focusing on applying our understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar carefully and consistently in our own writing.

Home Learning Top Tip – Mrs Forsey advises “Remember when you do any writing to try and maintain the high standards you have achieved this year…capital letters, full stops and beautiful joined writing all the way!”

Writing…We have composed diaries and biographies in role as Emmeline Pankhurst or Molly Brown as part of curriculum week. Come and check them out at our open house tomorrow!

Home Learning Top Tip-There are so many amazing women from the suffragette movement that you could find out about – why not create a fact file on Emily Wilding Davidson?

Throughout CURRICULUM WEEK we explored the 1910s and 1920s focusing in on two key female figures: Emmeline Pankhurst and the ‘unsinkable’ Molly Brown. We considered how views towards women differed between the 1910s/1920s and now as well as learning about the Titanic and Molly Brown’s story. In addition, we were inspired by the artist Picasso to create some abstract portraits of one another and got stuck into some jazz dancing too!

General information

Please make sure that all school uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled. Normally we have PE on a Tuesday and Friday but we advise your children to have kits in school throughout the week as this sometimes changes according to the timetable. Please include joggers and a sweatshirt for outdoor PE and a spare pair of socks. Roll on deodorant is also permitted (no spray deodorant please!) PE is a compulsory part of the curriculum. In encouraging the children to take greater responsibility for themselves, and in getting them prepared for secondary school - if your child does not have their PE kit in school when we have sport, they will complete an activity related to their learning in a class in school. If this happens 3 times, Mr Cox (our PE Leader), will be contacting parents. Please support your child in having their kit ready and in school. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

Please let the school and the teacher know if your child has any allergies (that we do not already know about) or needs to take any medication.

Please remind your child to bring a coat every day in the winter months.
