P.E days - Wednesday (outside) and Thursday (inside)
Class assembly - 25th January 2022
Welcome back - can you believe that you are all in Upper Key Stage 2 now?!
I hope you all had a fantastic summer break - I have been dodging the rain while looking for giant frogs in Stockport with my daughter and also enjoying the Lake District. Feel free to tell me what adventures you have been up to!
On our class page you will be able to find information about this half term's learning.
At the bottom of this page I have attached this years topic overview, homework and spelling sheets along with some useful links to help you with your learning.
Here are some useful reminders and links to web pages for you:
For English this half term, we are going to be covering a number of English skills whilst studying some different texts and genres. We will begin by reading our class book - Macbeth! This gruesome tale about a Scottish General who is greeted by three witches will have you on the edge of your seat! We will be building on our reading skills; spellings, punctuation and grammar skills and deepening our understanding of language and how to use it for a desired outcome on an audience! We will be writing narratives, letters and poems.
In Maths this half term, we will be learning about Place Value- within this topic we will be reading and writing numbers to one million, ordering and comparing numbers, rounding numbers up to the nearest hundred thousand and calculating with negative numbers. Throughout the unit, we will be recapping some key skills from previous learning, and practicing our reasoning and problem solving skills.
Don't forget a really easy way to practice your times tables at home is by using TT Rockstars. Knowing your times tables up to 12x12 helps with a lot of different units in Maths!
Here are some useful websites:
In our Topic this term, we are going to be learning all about World War Two! It is a war which changed the world forever and we will look at how it has impacted our lives today. Within this topic we will be learning about the key historical moments which led to the outbreak of war; we will understand the meaning of evacuation and look at where evacuees were sent to around Britain; and we will be creating our own Anderson Air Raid Shelters.
In our science topic this half term, we will be learning all about evolution and inheritance! We will be understanding how and why animals have adapted over millions of years. We will be learning about Charles Darwin and his discoveries in the Galapagos Island's and looking at fossils and what we can learn from them.
Our RE topic is called Loving and is all about family. We will be understanding the meaning of unconditional love and God's unconditional love for us. We will learn about forgiveness and its importance in how we love one another.
Does love last forever or does it have limits?
Do you have to earn love?
How can I love people I don't like?
PSHE and Mindfulness
PSHE and Mindfulness
Interweaved throughout all of our topics is the importance of self-care and reflection. At home we encourage you to use a journal to write down our thoughts, feelings and emotions which is key to regulating how we are throughout each day like we do in class. Additionally, we will post some online meditation and yoga you can practice at home.
