Welcome to Class 10
Spring (1) 2020
In English, the children will be exploring the use of persuasive devices and making a leaflet persuading people to visit Wilmslow. The children will be inspired by the Apollo 11 moon landing to write historical fiction from two different perspectives on this event. the children will also be exploring and writing limerick poetry.
In Maths, the children will be learning about multiplication and division and continuing to practise times tables.
Multiplication times tables will be a focus throughout the year! All children will be given access to Times Table Rock Stars. A fantastic game in which children can practise their Times Tables which is fun and challenging.
In Science, the children will be studying electricity and answering questions, such as 'how can we stay safe around electricity?' and 'why aren't wires made form wood?'.
In History, the children will be studying entertainment in the 20th Century. The children will be looking at major events, style, culture and inventions in each decade.
In PE, the children will have two PE lessons per week. Indoor PE will consist of gymnastics. Outdoor PE will have a focus on orienteering.
Our P.E. days are Monday for outdoor P.E. and Wednesday for indoor P.E. Please make sure your child has appropriate kit, including trainers, in school at all times. For safety please ensure children with long hair have it tied up and if they wear earrings these are removed if possible. Thank you.
To develop into fluent, confident readers it is important for children to read at home with their parents. they could read their reading book, a library book, the newspaper or a magazine- it is all good practice! Please listen to your child read as often as possible, talk to them about what they have read, and enjoy reading together. Please sign their reading diary as a record of what they have done at home.
