Welcome to Class 5/6 - Mrs Burgess

We have a busy term ahead of us! Year 5 will continue to use the Singapore method of maths teaching our next topics will be Geometry and Measures. Year 6 will be taught separately and will be completing the remainder of the KS2 curriculum in preparation for SATs. In English we are moving on comparing poetry, picture books and also reading the story of Macbeth. All writing and grammar work will be linked to these books. The Geography topic this term will be focusing on locational knowledge and skills with a focus on South America; our music will link to this theme. In DT we will be constructing our own fairground rides.

PE will be on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday (but please keep your kit in school all week in case of changes). This will be outdoors so please bring suitable footwear.

Homework: All children need to continue to read as frequently as possible. Every day is best but three times each week is adequate. Although the children are becoming increasingly fluent, they should continue to read to an adult on a regular basis. All children know which book band they are on and whilst they do still need to read from these books each week, they can also record reading from Bug Club and their own choice of book in their planner which will be checked on a Monday.

Spag.com homework will be set and checked every Friday.

Maths: Year 5 – Continue to practise times tables.

Year 6 – year 6 will be given a practise test each week. These will challenge them to begin with and we ask them just to try their best. As they cover more of the curriculum, we hope to see their confidence grow.

Each Friday we will do a times table speed test. Your child will know which tables they are practising and will be expected to complete 60 questions in 2 minutes before they move on to the next one.
