Welcome to 5/6K's webpage - over the year we will post regular updates on here about all the fantastic learning we have done. The theme for the autumn term is Heroes and Villains. Our work will include: looking at the work of famous scientists, writing a biography, reading older literature and developing our drawing and sketching skills. Take a look at the autumn term curriculum cloud for more details.
PE will still be on a Tuesday afternoon with Miss Starkie. PE is an important part of the school curriculum and all children are expected to take part. Everyone will need to have their full PE kit in school to make sure that they don't miss out on any of the fun.
Homework is sent home at the end of the week and is due back on the following Wednesday; homework will be linked to our work in class and will alternate between English, Maths & Topic work. We will also be using our new online tools as part of our homework tasks- MyMaths, Doodlemaths, TTRS, Read Theory and Spag.com. Spellings will also sent home each week and there will be a spelling test every Friday.
If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to come and speak to me at the beginning of the school day and remember to keep checking our website for all the latest information and photographs.
Before half term, we held our annual Autumn book week. The theme for the week was 'Magic, Monsters and Mystery'. We spent the week reading and exploring the book Tuesday by David Weisner. Our week concluded with our dressing up day and I think you will all agree that we looked fantastic. Everyone was very impressed with the effort we had all put into our costumes. A special well done to our competition winners John and Kadie who were dressed as Rocket Rabbit and a Zombie schoolgirl. A great day was had by all!
Many thanks to the Padiham Rotary Club who came in last week to present all of our Year 6 children with a dictionary. This is something that they do each year and we are very grateful for their kind donations.
We were lucky enough last week to visit the newly re-opened Padiham Archives. We were able to find out about life in Padiham during the First World War and completed some research about the 320 soldiers from Padiham who died during the war.
Whole Class Reading
In 5/6K we believe that reading is the key to everything. We have an expansive collection of books for the children to read in our Reading Corner but we also enjoy reading and exploring books together. Our first class novel is Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy - it's an exciting adventure story about a sky-ship race to South Polaris.
