Welcome to 5/6K

2020/2021

Welcome to the 5/6K webpage 

This half term our topic is called 'Super Sleuth'. We will be searching out clues to tell us more about the lives of Anglo-Saxons and how they lived. Our topic also includes looking at the Viking and Norman invasions. In English, we will be reading and writing detective stories and our science topic focuses on examining animal and plant classification. For more information, take a look at the Spring 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!! 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. 

 

Mrs Bracewell

Our Reading Journey

 

This half term our class novel is Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver

Survival

 

To conclude our English work on the Brightstorm novel, Antarctica and Ernest Shackleton, we wrote non-chronological reports about the imaginary Third Continent. To begin our work, we create mini biomes to show the flora and fauna found there. 

Evolution and Inheritance

 

In our science work, we have been looking at how animals have adapted and evolved to survive. Our final lesson focussed on inheritance. We created our own Mr Men characters thinking about what features our new characters had inherited from their 'parents'.

Shackleton's Journey

 

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...

Learning from Home

 

Listed below you will find a selection of website links and worksheets for you to use with your children if they are not attending school due to quarantine, isolation or illness. If you would like some printed worksheets too then please send a message to the class email address or contact the school office.
