Summer Term 2021
I hope you had an enjoyable Easter break and look forward to normality for the rest of the academic year.
In numeracy we will the begin the term by focussing on geometry and then progress to problem solving and reasoning finishing with the multiplication and division of decimal numbers, proper and improper fractions. Everything we learn in numeracy will have problem solving and reasoning running through it with a focus on conjecture and investigation.
Literacy will be linked to our topic- ‘Rainforests’ We will base our learning around the Amazon Rainforest but also look at global rainforest including those in Africa and Australia. We will use our investigations to write non chronological reports, newspaper reports and poetry.
Our science topic includes the investigation of space and planets. This will include looking at the orbit of all planets around the sun, lunar and solar eclipses and the history of space travel. We also intend to create a solar system in the classroom as part of our DT project.
Through the Summer term we will work hard on 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)
I am looking forward to continuing our hard work and watching the children grow in confidence and knowledge.
* Reminders *
- – PE kits for Monday and Thursday 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.
