Welcome to the 5/6K webpage.
This half term our topic is called 'Heroes and Villains'. We will be looking at a selection of famous people and characters including Ernest Shackleton, Kehinde Wiler, Mary Anning, Macbeth and Charles Darwin. For more information, take a look at the Autumn term curriculum map.
PE will take place every Monday afternoon with Mr Leyland. At the moment children just need to bring in a change of footwear for their PE lessons. Each week, we will send home spellings to practise. Children can now also access their spellings through the online game Spelling Shed - see the link below. Homework will be sent out every Friday and should be returned by Wednesday - 20 table points for all homework brought back in on a Monday!! Most of the homework this term will be basic maths skills. Everyone will be expected to read at home as often as possible - they can read their reading book, a novel, a comic, the newspaper or a magazine. Reading is the key to everything at school and is a vital part of our school curriculum. The more reading children can do at home the more benefit they will see in the classroom. We have an extensive library in class and everyone is welcome to borrow, read, enjoy then return them. I am happy to recommend books if they are stuck for ideas of what to read.

Jingle Bell Journey - A Race to Lapland
We are now taking part in a festive race organised by the Burnley Schools Partnership. As a school, we are aiming to cover the 3,227 miles during our Daily Mile sessions but you can help at home too. You can add any miles you walk by following the link below. Let's get walking!
In our English lessons, we have been reading the book 'Shackleton's Journey' which is all about Ernest Shackleton and his quest to bring his crew home safely from Antarctica. Our class turned into journalists this week reporting on events from the book and celebrating the safe return of the Endurance crew. We wrote and performed news broadcasts including interviews with crew members about their time in Antarctica. We are now writing newspaper articles about the events. Videos and photographs of our amazing writing coming soon...
