A Message from the Class Teacher, Miss Graham

Term 6 2017

In Maths, we are looking over our mental and written methods for calculation, before focussing on problem solving, including with fractions, decimals and percentages.

In English, we are finishing our Arrival unit, writing a migrant’s story using the book’s pictures for inspiration. We will then be moving on to looking at The Highwayman poem, using this to inspire some of our own writing.

During our Science sessions, we will be looking at Light: how it travels, what it can travel through and much more.

In our afternoon Topic sessions, we are moving on to our “Ice and Fire” topic, where we will be looking at the story of the Titanic initially, before moving on to Geography-based objectives focussing on icebergs and volcanoes.

During RE sessions, the class will focus on ………

PE sessions happen on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and both sessions will focus on Athletics in preparation for Sports Day.

On Friday afternoons, Year 5 will continue to do some gardening, whilst Year 6 take time to prepare their goodbye speeches for the Leavers’ Service on the last day of term.

Lastly, several Year 6s will also be going away on their Residential trip to Torquay and the whole class will be preparing for our end of year production: Shakespeare Rocks!
