Year 5 /6 M 2019 - 2020

Mr MacDunne

Welcome to Yr5/6M class page. Firstly I would like to say 'Hello!' It is really exciting to be a part of such a family feeling and friendly school. If you have any problems please do not hesitate to speak to me.

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 Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar task and a Maths activity. Regular practise of x tables should be done at home as well as daily opportunities for your child to read for twenty minutes. Reading should be 25 minutes daily.

****All children are now fully registered on our TT Rockstars programme which is designed to improve their rapid recall of all times tables and the linked inverse division calculations. Children across the whole school have been getting very competitive, even the teachers are getting involved in challenges with pupils and other teachers!*****

If you have any problems with logins then just let Mr MacDunne know.

We do Accelerated Reading every afternoon from 1:20-1:45'. The children 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 during the first half of Autumn term, our focus is Place Value. We will spend all of this half term looking at this topic.

Year 6 children should have now ordered their Revision books.

In Literacy, we have been reading several non fiction texts and will eventually be reading the novel 'Carrie's War'. The children have loved researching about WWII so far and we have completed a wide range of written pieces like reports.

In History, we have benn looking at WWII. Children have been asked to carry out a project at home around a chosen subject of their choice. Please have a look at our pictures. We have been researching areas of World War 2, we have found this ectremely interesting and valuable to our learning. We will write a non chronological report using our research. Also take a look around our room, we have started writing and learning from our working walls and displays.

In Science, children are looking at 'Habitats' . They will have the opportunity to carry out investigations.
