Year 5 and 6 – Summer Term 2019
As we start the Summer Term, we would just like to thank everyone for supporting our school motto:
‘Together with Christ Everyone Achieves More’
Welcome to the Summer!
Our Topic this term is "Revolutions!"
As part of this topic we will be investigating revolutions that happened during the Victorian Era. We will be looking at the industrial revolution and also the revolutionary social changes that have helped shape the way we live today.
As usual, we will continue to provide quality first teaching in the core subjects of English, Maths and RE in the morning sessions as well as all other subjects during the afternoon sessions. We will continue to have Mrs Earnshaw supporting the music curriculum (ukulele) this term and Mr Gaffney will be working with the children in PE.
Please make sure that your child has the correct PE Kit - black shorts, pumps and a plain white t-shirt. All kit needs to be labelled clearly with your child's name.
We will be organising educational visits this term - after the Year 6 assessments, so keep an eye out for the letters in reading packets.
The Year 5&6 Learning Leaflets have been sent home with your child. It contains the curriculum outline and also a list of dates for your diary for the first half of the Summer Term. Check the diary on the school website for further updates.
The first half of the Summer term is especially busy for the pupils in Year 6 as SAT week is from May 13th - 16th. The children in Year 6 will sit assessments in Reading, Grammar & Spelling and Mathematics over the 4 days. We ask that to help ensure your child is thoroughly prepared that they have plenty of sleep, eat a good breakfast and arrive at school for 8.30am during SAT week.
In the run up to this week, please help your child:
* Learn their spellings - the Y5&6 list - which is at the back of the reading diary.
* Listen to them read daily - at least 30 minutes - and ask them questions about the text - this helps them process information and engage with new vocabulary.
* Test them on their multiplication knowledge to ensure quick recall of facts.
* Revisit their revision books
If your child is in Year 6 and you require any SAT Information, please ask any member of Year 5&6 staff and they will be able to help you.
Year 5 parents, if you could also help your child with their spellings, listen to them read and test them on their quick multiplication recall, this will assist them on their journey to Year 6.
This will be a busy term, so we thank you in advance for your continued help and co-operation.
