Foxes - Yr5/6
Welcome to Foxes Class
Welcome to Foxes class. This is the home of the year 5 and 6 children.
Currently we are taught by Mrs Papandrea ( Mon, Tues) , Mrs Thomas (Wed)and Mr Batty (Thurs , Fri).
We are supported in class by Mrs Cattell and Mrs Cartwright.
Homework will be sent home every Friday and should be returned by Wednesday. For P.E. we would advise children to bring indoor and outdoor P.E. kit (including trainers) to be prepared for any weather, bringing their kit in on a Monday and taking it home on a Friday. Regular P.E. sessions with a coach are on Wednesdays and the additional P.E. will vary.
Currently we are studying 'Our World'. We have already begun to find out more about plastic pollution.
Our unit this half-term is Evolution and Inheritance. We will be looking at how living things(including humans) have evolved over time; how Charles Darwin and Alfred Wallace developed their ideas on evolution and how fossil evidence supports their ideas.
This half term, the children will be looking at writing to persuade, writing their pieces about persuading others to act to preserve our world. We will continue to focus on handwriting and spelling. Children will read daily as part of whole class and independent reading.
This half term, children will focus on developing and securing their methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They will also secure their knowledge of place value before beginning to look at fractions, decimals and in some cases, percentages.
The children will learn about how the borders in Europe have changed over time. Also, they will look at how the UK landscapes have changed over the decades.
The children will look at computational thinking and breaking down a large problem into manageable tasks. They will go on to coding tasks using Discovery coding.
This half term, the children will be looking at a unit called Journeys. It will look at call and response songs and identifying rhythms in music.
Art and D.T
Linked to our topic theme, children will design and make a globe from different materials. They will also look using perspective to create differing street scenes.
