Welcome back everybody; we hope you had a lovely Easter break. Welcome as well to our class page where you can find out about our class, what we are learning, fun activities to try at home, winners of our weekly and termly awards and much more.
Our class teacher is Mrs Willis and we are very lucky to have four lovely Teaching Assistants: Mrs Birkett, Mrs Leat, Mrs Holdway and Mr Merriman. Miss Usher is also joining us as well as a Trainee Teacher; a very exciting year for her. We are all really looking forward to a great first term this year and can't wait to get started.
I can't believe we are in our Summer term; this year is going so fast! Our final theme of the year is 'Don't Siesta, Let's Fiesta' which is going to be lots of fun. We look at the Maya in History, Mexico in Geography, Mexican festivals and craft in Art, Mexican food in DT and we may even get in some Mayan maths!
We will also be continuing to look at Sikhism in RE and A Healthy Lifestyle and the Human Digestive System in Science; another exciting term.
For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday. Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.
Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. J
Word Wonder Wall
As we are going to be using the 100 tricky words as the basis for our spellings, the Word Wonder Wall will be used in a slightly different way this term and will not be tested on separately.
Homework Challenge -Spring Term
What can you find out about the Maya or Mexico? Why not try a Mexican recipe and let us know what it is like? Or you could make a model of a Mayan temple or research Mayan Gods and create an information booklet or PowerPoint to show everyone back in class. There will be Class DoJo points for those Homework Challenges that are brought in. :-)
YEAR 6 SATs Preparation
Year 6, please continue to complete your CGP booklets. You are all at different stages now, so try to complete as many pages as you can and bring it in for marking next Thursday, 26th April 2018.
