Welcome to Year 5 and 6.
This term we will be studying the Ancient Egyptians and making comparisons between their way of life and ours today. Our class book is The Storm Keeper's Island and the children will have a copy that they can bring home to read on with as directed - please don't let them read to the end just yet! We will be working towards writing an opening chapter of a sequel to the story.
This term we are also looking to develop problem solving and reasoning in mathematics.
There are further details about the curriculum on our termly curriculum map.
The children have spelling and comprehension reading weekly and should be reading for at least 15 minutes every day.
Year 6 will start to bring home additional maths homework. Year 5 need to ensure their times tables and number facts are fluent.
We are entering the Sumdog challenge again this term, so the children should know their logins.
Our termly challenge is also available and we look forward to seeing the exciting and creative responses.
Please feel free to contact me on Dojo if you would like to share some of the children's achievements or if you have any concerns.
