Welcome to Class 11 & 12

Miss Needham & Miss Wood

Thank you all for working so hard on your home learning last week. We have loved reading your reports that you have sent to us. We hope you are all staying safe and have been enjoying the lovely weather. 

We have been in school every Monday and it's really not the same being here without you - we really miss you all!! Hopefully, it won't be too long until we are all reunited. 

Please see this week's home learning resources below. There is also a list of websites for additional learning. To access this, click on the home button and then additional work. 

Don't forget to keep reading and tweet your recommendations to us. Now is the perfect opportunity for us all to enjoy reading a wider variety of books. :-)

 

Thank you to all the parents for being so supportive with home schooling.

In Science the children will be learning all about 'Living Things and their Habitats'. They will be learning all about the processes of reproduction and the life cycles of plants, mammals, amphibians, insects and birds. They will 'bridge back' to their knowledge about the reproduction of plants and learn about pollination and asexual reproduction. They will have the opportunity to take cuttings from plants to create clones from the parent plant. Additionally, they compare the life cycles of different mammals, birds and amphibians. 

 

History 

In history we will be learning all about the invasions of the Scots and Anglo-Saxons in the 5th century. We will find out where the invading troops came from and where in Britain they managed to settle and then we will go on to investigate how life in Britain changed as a result.  

Art

 In art we will be focusing on street art and the artist Banksy. 

Music 

In music we will continue to have our wind instrument tuition on Wednesday afternoons.

French

In French we will be using Goldilocks and the Three Bears as a stimulus. The children will use their knowledge of food and drink from last half term to support them with the story.  

PE 

In outdoor PE we will be focusing on orienteering. During our indoor session, we will be exploring different types of dance during and after World War 2. 

 

 

On Monday 16th March Year Five will be visiting the Clonter Theatre in Congleton. Both classes will be learning about different aspects of working in theatre and will also be performing a short play on the stage. Parents will be invited to watch. 

 

On Wednesday 25th March Year Five will be taking part in the Wilmslow Music Festival at the Wilmslow Leisure Centre. A letter will be sent home with all the details.
