Welcome to our class page!
Having worked with the class last year we are looking to hit the ground running. They know me and I know them!!
In numeracy we are revising the four operations with the intention of mastering column addition and subtraction up to four digits (including exchanging- you may know it as borrowing or carrying,) We will also understand column multiplication of up to four digits multiplied by one and using the bus stop method to divide four digit numbers by one digit with remainders. After half term we will be learning about fractions, decimals and percentages. Everything we learn in numeracy will have problem solving and reasoning running through it.
Literacy will be linked to our topic- ‘Meet the Artist!’ We will begin the term learning about the life of Frida Kahlo- a famous Mexican painter and using her life we will revise the genre of Non Chronological Reports. We will also undertake creative writing using her paintings as a stimulus. After half term we will write a biography on the life of Henri Matisse.
Through the first term we will work hard in our guided reading focussing on inference and deduction and sharing our thoughts and opinions within our group. For the whole year we will learn the Year 5 and 6 spellings word list (see link below: page 23)
Miss Jones will be teaching Sikhism to the class and we will also investigate living organisms in Science.
I am looking forward to a busy first term and watching the children progress their knowledge.
* Reminders *
- – PE kits for Tuesday and Wednesday each week.
- – There is no need for your child to bring in a pencil case as we will provide your child with all the stationary and equipment they need.
- I appreciate life is hectic but ten minutes reading with your children can make a huge difference.
