Year 5 /6 M 2018 - 2019

Mrs Metcalfe

Welcome to Yr5/6M class page. Here you will get a flavour of what the children are doing in school at the moment. 

Homework is normally given out on a Friday and consists of a SPAG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) task and a Maths activity. Children are also given ten spellings each Friday and tested the following Friday. Regular practise of x tables should be done at home as well as daily opportunities for your child to read at home for twenty minutes.

We do Accelerated Reading every afternoon from 1:20-1:45 and children are now competing to get into our 'Golden Club'. In order for children to achieve this, they must be scoring atleast 85% on the quizzes completed when they have read a book. Children must also be reading 20 minutes per day if in Year 5 or 25 minutes per day for Year 6 children. Opportunities for children to practise reading their quiz books at home will improve their chances of getting into the Golden Club and receiving a treat at the end of each term.

In Maths, we will spend this half term revising calculation strategies; column addition and subtraction, short and long multiplication, grid method, short division and will be moving on to long division. During lessons with Mrs Lennon, children will be looking at Statistics.

In R.E we have been focusing on our school mission statement spending time in class carrying out a variety of activities to show how we can love, learn and live like Jesus in our own lives each day at school.

In Geography, we will be learning about the countries of Europe and using Atlas' to support this work. We will carry out a study of Chile as well as finding out more about some natural disasters and climate change.

In Science, children will study living things in their environments with Mrs Lennon. Children will be incorporating Art into this topic also. 

Children will be using lap tops to carry out research about an historical topic 'The Three Monarchs' which will be our history focus for this next term.

Mrs Kelly has got lots of fun activities planned for weekly Art lessons, giving children the opportunity to show off their creative sides!!
