Welcome to Class 12
- Miss Wood
Please check Class 11's page for work to do whilst at home. It will be updated regularly.
In English we will be focusing on poetry. We will be using the poem 'Jabberwocky' by Lewis Carroll to learn, plan, write and perform our own imitation poems. We will then use the Jabberwock as a stimulus to write non-chronological reports.
In maths we will continue to solve calculations that multiply and divide decimal fractions by whole numbers. We will then combine multiplication with addition and subtraction. We will also spend time finding equivalent fractions and simplifying fractions.
Our science topic will be 'Living Things and Their Habitats'. We will learn about the process of reproduction and life cycles of plants, mammals, amphibians, insects and birds.
In history we will be answering the question ' What affects did the Anglo Saxons have on British history?' We will learn about the invasions of the Scots and Anglo Saxons in the fifth century. We will also go on to investigate how life in Britain changed as a result.
In art we will be focusing on street art and the artist Banksy.
In music we will continue to have our wind instrument tuition on Wednesday afternoons.
In French we will be using 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears' as a stimulus.
In outdoor PE we will be focusing on orienteering. In indoor PE we will be learning different dance styles that were popular before and during World War Two.
Outdoor PE will be every Tuesday and indoor PE will be every Friday. Please ensure you have your PE kit in school at all times. Girls can you also please remember to tie your hair back.
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.
We will send homework home on a Friday. The children will have a new spelling list and a maths book each week. They will also have a grammar and comprehension homework on alternate weeks. Please ensure their completed homework is returned for marking by the following Friday.
Our weekly spelling test will also be on a Thursday.
Please encourage your child to visit the website Times Table Rock Stars whereby they can practice their times table skills. Their login details are in their green reading diary. Your child has access to MyMaths too. They can practice a range of mathematical skills. Also please listen to them read everyday. Thank you.
