After half term, the children will take part in our school Spelling Bee competition. As part of their homework, they have been sent home a list of Yr5/6 spellings taken from the National Curriculum. Please also see a link below for the list.
What we have been doing this week.
This week, we have been busy designing, creating and constructing Biomes of Mars. The children researched planet Mars and using their knowledge and imagination, created a biome of Mars using Modroc. Once they had been constructed, the children then painted them by mixing colours and using different techniques to create different effects.
This week we have innovated our story in English. The children have come up with some fantastic ideas and used some great language features to write some creative pieces of writing.
In Maths, we have been looking at multiples and factors. We can not stress the importance of the children learning their times tables which is why this week, for their homework, we would like them all to practice all unfamiliar tables.
Penrice Taster Day
Today, we had a fantastic day at Penrice enjoying a range of different activities. We made some lovely lanterns in Art/DT, completed a range of Science experiments to find out if reactions were exothermic or endothermic and took part in a variety of sport activities.
During the week in Maths, the children have revised the four mathematical operations and applied them in word problems and investigations.
We have started to innovate our class story of 'Dr Who' with some very imaginative ideas. We look forward to reading the finished stories.
Thank you to the parents that came along to Meet the Teacher, it was lovely to see you, show you around and have an informal chat.
This week, the Year 6 children attended a taster day at Poltair. We enjoyed a range of activities from English to Science.
It's lovely to be back and to see the children settling in so well, we hope you had an amazing summer break. This week we have already seen some great learning taking place, from space activities and Art to place value in Maths.
We would love to add some photos of your children so please remember to send back the 'home school agreement' forms as soon as possible.
