Hello and welcome to our class
We are a mixed year 5 and 6 class
Spring Term 2020
English: Our English work in the first half term will be based on stories from other traditions and cultures, including 'Tales from the Arabian Nights' and 'The Pearl Diver'. We will continue to use the 'Talk for Writing' process this term to help pupils develop their writing skills in a range of text types, which will include narrative and poetry writing, using dialogue, explanation, recounts and information writing.
Maths: Area & perimeter; angles; multiplication & division; fractions, decimals & percentages. Reasoning & problem solving using number, shape, space and measures will be ongoing throughout the year.
History: Early Islamic Civilisation
Science: Earth in space; Forces
Computing: design, write and debug programs that accomplish specific goals, including controlling or simulating physical systems; solve problems by decomposing them into smaller parts
Music: Exploring rounds and learning about sound sources; using ICT
Year 6 will be working towards their end of KS2 tests (also known as SATs) during the Spring term, so they are ready to take the tests early in the Summer term.
This year, test week is from Monday 11th May - Thursday 14th May (there are no tests on Friday 15th May - we will be having a well-earned class visit to the Heart of England Forest!)
Parents will be able to look at sample papers and ask any questions during our two parents evenings in March - we will also have an information pack available.
