Year 5 - Mrs Whittle and Mr Macbryde

What we have been learning Important Information and Letters Useful Links
Last half term we focused on William Shakespeare’s production of Macbeth. In this we studied the plot, characters and underlying themes. We looked at various ways in which the text has been presented and used drama and writing activities to deepen our understanding of the play.

In maths, we worked on improving our knowledge of the four operations practicing a range of different methods to solve problems. We enjoyed the introduction of Singapore Maths and the children engaged well with the new format.

Our topic was the ‘Tudors.’ We focused on what life was like for children in Tudor times, investigated Tudor foods and their origins. We also researched Tudor clothes, the rich and poor as well as Tudor Kings including Henry and his six wives.

In ICT we focused on programming using Scratch and Lego Wedo to build, create and programme a range of different devices. We then tested designs to ensure that they work correctly.

The children have furthered their co-ordination, agility and communication skills whilst participating in a range of handball activities in Physical Education. We continued our weekly swimming lessons where the children have entered a ‘swimathon’ designed to improve fitness, stamina and further develop a range of strokes.

In science we participated in a range of scientific investigations to explore changes and properties of materials. Children made predictions, tested ideas and collected results to form conclusions based on practical activities.

Year 6 - Miss Toft, Miss Gee and Mr Ellis

What we have been learning Important Information and Letters Useful Links

This term, we will be busy preparing for our SATs with morning booster classes from 8:15am. These will cover maths, reading and spelling, punctuation and grammar (SPaG).

Our topic this term is 'Brave New World', which will cover the history of the Industrial Revolution. We will be looking at pre and post images of production lines, machines and transport around this time in order to make comparisons and consider significant changes.

In maths, we will continue to follow Singapore Maths. We will be studying geometry, position and movement and data handling, which will build upon our previous knowledge and require us to apply this in our work. Arithmetic performance has improved throughout the year, however we would like your continued support with multiplication and division facts, as these are vital across all aspects of maths.

On the run up to SATs we will be studying 'King Kong' by Anthony Browne, where we will be focusing on grammar, for example sentence structure and tenses. After SATs we will move onto reading 'Rooftoppers' by Katherine Rundell. We will study the book carefully to continue to stimulate our writing, as this will be an ongoing focus for our end of year writing assessments in June.

Peter and Marcus (our visiting South African cricket coach) will continue to deliver multi-sport sessions, with a focus on cricket. We look forward to entering the cricket tournaments in May and June to show off all of the skills we have learnt so far.

As the children will sadly be leaving us at the end of the summer term, staff from the local high schools will visit us to support their transition. Children will also have the opportunity to visit their new school and an outside theatre company will be coming to deliver a 'Moving Up' performance.

We look forward to all of the celebrations post SATs – party day, pound-grow, Robinwood and lots more!
