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 Ancient Greece - focussing on the legacy left by the people who lived in Ancient Greece. Our work will include: reading and writing Greek myths, writing a report about the Ancient Greeks focussing on the Olympics, European geography and human development in science. Take a look at the Autumn term curriculum cloud for more details.
PE will be on a Monday afternoon with Mr Leyland. 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- Doodlemaths, TTRS, DoodeleSpell, 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.
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 Who Let the Gods Out by Maz Evans. This wonderful novel mixes modern day life and characters from Ancient Greek myths.
