Faith - Year 5/6

Miss Moore


When I was a child, I loved to read. I can remember weekly trips to our local library and borrowing stacks of books to take home. One of the earliest authors I can remember enjoying is Enid Blyton. My grandad let me borrow his collection of Famous Five books and I loved the adventures the children would go on. I also really enjoyed Malory Towers books and I am sure I read the entire collection and even had them as audio books (which I can remember making my whole family listen to when we went on holiday in the car!). As well as Enid Blyton, I loved to read books about animals, in particular Animal Ark and Dolphin Diaries by Lucy Daniels. One final author that sticks in my mind is Michal Morpurgo. We spent lots holidays on the Isle of Scilly, and I think it is this reason that I really enjoyed his books set on the islands (in particular, The Wreck of Zanzibar and Why the Whales Came).

I love to read! My favourite book of all time is The Wind In The Willows by Kenneth Grahame. I remember loving it when it was read to me and I have read it to my own children too.

Hello everybody and welcome to our class page. In Year 5 and 6 for this half term, we will be exploring measurement and statistics for our maths lessons and in addition to this, we will be consolidating our previous learning through daily recap questions as well as weekly arithmetic lessons every Friday.
For our English, we will be focusing on the writing purpose ‘to entertain’. We will be exploring the book ‘Malamander’ by Thomas Taylor and children will be working towards the final writing outcome of writing their own invented chapter for the novel. In Reading, we will be exploring different cultures through the book ‘Journey to Jo’burg’ by Beverley Naidoo and the children will be focusing on making inferences. This links in with our history learning where we will be studying The Cornish Rebellion and the journey they made to London.
Our focus for science this half term is properties and changes of materials. During this topic, we will be comparing and grouping together everyday materials based on their properties, using our knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated and demonstrate and explain the differences between reversible and irreversible changes.
For our RE, we will be exploring the key question ‘What do Christians believe Jesus did to ‘save’ people?’ and children will be exploring the ways in which Jesus’ sacrifice can guide Christian's choices and beliefs today. We cannot wait to share with you all our fantastic learning.
We hope you find the resources below easy to access for supporting your child's learning at home and understanding the key objectives being covered. The list below includes:
