Information for parents - Welcome to Years 5 and 6.

Maths' Workshop for parents - Wednesday 28th September

During the maths' workshop we discussed how the lesson progressed and the activities that are asked of the children. 

These included Times Tables Rock Stars, SATs questions, the Power maths' text books and the practice books. 

We also discussed the build up to SATs and how we prepare the children for this.  Questions were asked and responded to regarding expectations and calculation methods.  

It was very well received by the parents that attended. 


As part of our study of the book Holes, we wrote a set of instructions on how to dig a hole. 


Pictures were drawn by following instructions to build a scene using lines and colour.  Whilst looking at perspective, we used a central point to make our names and ourselves 'pop' out.

Year 5/6 have carried out 2 Missions - 'Image is everything' and 'Food for the body is not enough: there must be food for the soul'. Working together in teams, children had to create a 2D astronaut big enough for their whole team to sit in and a 3D rocket to take supplies to the Space Station.  Would they succeed? 

Knowledge Organisers: History and Science

Children are studying Crime and Punishment and Earth and Space this Half Term.

As part of our English book study, we are reading Holes by Louis Sachar.  

It is about a boy called Stanley Yelnats and his family who have a history of bad luck, so he isn't surprised when a miscarriage of justice sends him to a boy's juvenile detention centre.  Stanley must now dig up the truth.

Welcome to Year 5/6

It has been lovely to welcome the children back into school.  They look great in their uniforms and have all settled well into their new classes - Shakespeare, Cadbury and Cousteau.
