Faith - Year 5/6

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.

Summer 2
 
Welcome back everybody, we hope that you've all had a lovely relaxing half term break. For our Maths this half term, we will be delving into the mathematical world of Geometry where we will be learning how to use protractors to draw lines and measure angles, learning about angles on a straight line, at a point and those that are vertically opposite as well as looking at angles in a range of shapes including triangles, quadrilaterals and polygons. In addition to this, Year6 will be developing their mathematical reasoning through themed projects which will consolidate our learning throughout the year. 
 
For our English, we will be watching a short film called ' The Ridge' focusing on the purpose of ' writing to entertain'. This will tie in nicely with our topic learning for the half term which is titled 'Magnificent Mountains'. The focus for this will be Geography and Art. In our Geography lessons, we will be learning about the different mountain types and their formation and the impact of tourism in this environment. In our Art lessons, we will be focusing on developing our sketching techniques and applying these to observational drawings. 
 
For our RE, we will be looking at Humanism and answering the key question, ' What matters most to Humanists and to Christians? For this unit, we will be exploring what people believe and what difference this makes to how they live. This will enable the children  to gain the knowledge, understanding and skills needed to handle questions raised by religion and belief, reflecting on their own ideas and ways of living.
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:
 
-Knowledge Organisers
This explains the key information and facts your child needs to know by the end of their topic unit with some visual aids and key vocabulary we will learn too.
 
-Calculation Policy 
This provides you with information about the key mathematical concepts and how these are taught during this Key Stage.
