In Maths Y5 will be continuing to follow the White Rose scheme of work.
Y6 will be revising for SATS for the first 2 weeks. They will then have investigations to explore after SATS week.
Booster classes will continue until 9/5/19 on Thursdays 315-415pm with Sat questions linked to a theme.
Times Tables Olympics 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 will continue to teach writing with a range of genres.This incorporates topic learning & understanding as well as the focus on writing skills for Y6, including complex sentences, use of speech to move a story on and better punctuation such as commas for clarity and using semi-colons. We are also doing a shared write for all of the Y5's in the cluster of schools which we are excited to be part of.
Writing will continue to link to topic work, including PSHE and Science.
Grammar is taught as an integral part of English sessions. Spellings are practised during the week and are tested on Friday.
