Welcome back Falcons!

Ready, Respectful, Resilient

 

Our Christian values for this term are friendship, thankfulness and koinonia.

10 If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Ecclesiastes 4:10

In class 4 there will always be someone to help when you are stuck, feeling sad or just need a little pick me up. Being kind and there for each other is the easiest thing we can do for each other.

 

Autumn Term

Beowulf- Michael Morpurgo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

English

Our English work is going to be based around Beowulf. We will look at different writing features and genres including:

Letter of advice

Diary entry

 Dialogue

 Character and setting description

 Action scenes

With each writing piece we will be focusing on the features that are included as well as working on our presentation of our work.

 

Topic

Our topic for this term is Anglo-Saxon VS Vikings. We will be looking at both Anglo-Saxon and Vikings and the struggles they went through. We will be looking at what life was like, as well as the laws that were around. As our class book is based around the same topic, we will be making lots of links that help us with our learning. We have some amazing art and DT links too.

 

Maths

This term we are going to be focusing on place value, roman numerals and the four operations. Our first focus is place value, within this we will be accessing a range of materials and activities. We will be working on representing numbers in a variety of ways, comparing numbers, ordering and numbers and rounding. Year 5 will be working with numbers up to 1 million and Year 6 will be working with numbers up to 10 million.

During the second half term we will be moving on to statistics and then fractions.

We will have a focus on our times tables throughout the whole term to make sure they are secure.

 

Science

Our science work will aim to develop our knowledge and understanding, scientific skills and measuring and recording abilities. For the first half term we will be exploring materials and their properties. We will then be moving on to evolution in the second half term.

 

PE

Our Pe sessions this term will be focusing on hockey and tag rugby. We will be working on developing our skills personally and for also playing in teams. We will hopefully be taking part in tournaments for both hockey and tag rugby.

PE is planned for a Monday afternoon; however, this will depend on the weather. With us being Year 5 and 6 the hall is slightly on the small side for us and with us playing larger games and using equipment such as hockey sticks, we will need to be outside. Please can PE kits be in all the time and then it is easier for me to choose when to do it on the day.

 

Homework

Homework will be based on our recovery curriculum and key skills that we need. Homework books will be given out on Friday and then collected on a Wednesday. Please can you ensure your child is doing their homework and it is ready to be handed in.

 

General Information

Please and thank you…
