Welcome to Year 5 & 6!
We are made up of 22 pupils, 2 teachers called Mrs Sayer and Mrs Love, and Mrs Martin, our Higher Level Teaching Assistant.
We will use our class page to keep you updated on activities and news throughout the school year…so watch this space!
Autumn term focuses on the book ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ which provides a fantastic array of cross curricular links. The children will learn about island life, studying the island of Japan for Geography, World War II for history links and Japanese calligraphy/art styles in Art. Using our Design and Technology skills we have been busy planning and designing models of storm shelters to put into practice by making a full size model up in the woods! Haikus, explanation texts, adventure story writing and more form our literacy ‘spine’ of work whilst maths incorporates everyday settings and contexts for problem solving with decimals and whole numbers. Alongside our varied and exciting curriculum we will be inviting in visitors from the Police and Fire brigade as well as completing our ‘Bikeability’ road safety training and swimming course.
