In Maths we are using Power Maths in Y5 and Y6. In our bubble Mr Moore teaches the Y5 and Mrs Tomlinson the Y6. We will be supplementing the work using the White Rose Scheme. Children will still consolidate objectives taught last year and the learning will be extended with age appropriate objectives.
Y5 will still be learning about area and perimeter, followed by blocks on multiplication & division then fractions.
Y6 will learn about co-ordinates and translations. This will be followed by a block on decimals and percentages.
Times Tables Olympics will continue in school and will be completed weekly. It is vital the children continue to learn their tables. Don't forget that there are games that they can play at home using Education City and Times Table Rock Stars. The children have individual log-ins.
In English, we teach reading and writing across a range of genres. This term these will include argument writing, explanation writing and some poetry.
This will incorporate a catch-up of grammar as well as topic learning & understanding and the focus on writing skills for Y5 and Y6.
Writing will continue to link to topic work, including Geography, PSCHE and Science.
Grammar is taught as an integral part of English sessions. Spellings are taught on Monday, practised during the week and are tested on Friday.
