I hope you've all had a good weekend. On Friday 8th May, we will be celebrating VE Day. In preparation for VE Day, I would like you all to research what it is? Why it is celebrated, What do we remember on this day and why is it so significant? Create an informative and vibrant poster with everything you have learnt. Include pictures too. I will look forward to receiving your posters via our class email. They can be hand written or created on a document.
Happy Friday Class 56B!

Our New School Year Autumn 2019
Welcome back to a new school year full of exciting activities. My name is Mrs Billam and working alongside me this year is the wonderful Mrs Darbyshire.
Our topic this term is Faster, Higher,Stronger. We will be researching a number of key areas: everyday life in Ancient Greece; the Olympics; famous Greeks and their achievements; and how Ancient Greece influenced the rest of the world. In English, we will be reading a range of Greek myths and using this as a basis for creating our own stories. In every aspect of our learning across the curriculum, we will concentrate on improving our spelling and grammar knowledge. In our Art lessons, we will be designing and making Greek vases from paper mache.
In November, we have a cinema visit planned to Accrington Vue to watch The Grinch
Our Money Skills for Life training will begin again this term for Year 5 and Year 6.
PE this year will be on a Thursday afternoon. It is an important part of the school curriculum and all children are expected to take part so make sure you have your full PE kit in school.
Two pieces of homework are sent out on a Friday (English and Maths) and should be returned at the latest by the following Wednesday so that homework can be marked. New spellings to learn will be sent home on a Friday and there will be a spelling test on the following Friday. Weekly arithmetic tests also take place on a Friday, focusing on multiplication tables and basic mental maths calculations.
Reading is at the heart of our curriculum and we encourage our children to read as often as possible so please remember to bring your book into school every day if possible.
