Autumn Term 1 2016

 

Welcome back to our first term in Year 5/6.

 

Topic

Our current topic is ‘Time Traveller’ which is history based.

We will also be incorporating Art and DT lessons linked to the topic.

 

ICT

We will be using ICT in a range of subjects across the curriculum in our topic work and we will be continuing with ‘I-Jam’ the ICT specialists, on a Wednesday afternoon.

 

Maths

We will be following the Year 5/6 curriculum for maths and we will be having a real focus on our times tables, arithmetic and developing reasoning skills.

 

Literacy

This term we will be looking at poetry, non-chronological reports, explanation texts and writing instructions -all linked to our Curriculum Theme. We will be reading extracts from The Time Machine by HG Wells and Tom’s Midnight Garden.

 

Spelling/Handwriting

Our focus in spelling will be the Year 5/6 key words. Each week there will be sessions to improve our handwriting.

 

Grammar

We will be using Kung Fu punctuation to help focus on our punctuation. We will also be looking at

Grammar Hammer Activities.

 

Home Reading

Children should read at least three times a week at home. All reading needs to be recorded in reading diaries with the date to enable participation in the school’s reader leader competition.

This will be set on a Monday and is to be completed by the Friday morning. It will consist of spellings to learn, a maths task, grammar and home reading.

Children will also be able to work on their extended termly homework. This is to be brought back into school during the week beginning Monday 17th Oct.

Year 5 children will also take part in a swimming session at Thorne Leisure centre.
