Welcome To The Y5/6 Homepage!

           Spring Term 2020                        

Happy New Year!  We hope you've had a great festive holiday and are ready to start the new term.

PLEASE DOWNLOAD OUR SPRING TERM LETTER TO PARENTS FOR INFORMATION ABOUT THIS TERM'S ACTIVITIES.

This term our topic is 'Land Wars' where we'll be exploring the Viking invasion of Anglo-Saxon England.  As part of our topic we'll be reading 'How To Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell.  See below for a synopsis of the book.

'Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero. . . .'

 

Spellings/Phonics 

It is still important that children in Year 5 and 6 work at improving their spelling which is a key part of the National Curriculum for writing.  Children will practise spellings in the mornings when they come in to school.  They also will be taught spelling in year groups as part of their English lessons. For homework, children will have the Year 5 and 6 list of spellings to learn – these are challenging spellings so will need some work throughout the half term.  They will also have spelling homework some weeks using ‘Spelling Shed’.

Reading 

As a minimum, all children are asked to read at least 3 times a week as part of their weekly homework and have it signed in their planner by an adult. These will be checked by their English teacher in English lessons.  Children should tell their teacher when they need to change their book and they will complete an Accelerated Reader quiz on an iPad before changing it.

Please be aware that revision activities may be set for children in Year 5 and 6 in addition to other homework as required. 

Topic homework

This term we would like children to complete ONE piece of topic homework of their choice about our Land Wars topic.  This can be written research, an art project, computer-based – anything which interests them.  We hope this will help children to focus on the one piece of work. Please bring in completed homework whenever it us ready and we will display it in the classroom.   

 

PE

PE sessions will take place for children in Year 5 and 6 on a TUESDAY with Mrs Wilson and Sports Coaching North West.  

Children will need appropriate warm outdoor PE kit in school on TUESDAYS as they will be outside for the afternoon.  Please refer to our PE uniform for more information. 

 

E-Safety - Who Are We Online?

This term in E-Safety we're focussing on our online presence - who we are and how we act online.  We'll be investigating apps and games to see how we interact with others and how we can safeguard ourselves using privacy settings.
