Our Weekly learning:

Our learning: Week commencing the 18/11/19

English: This week we will continue to use the storybook The Bear and the Piano to support us in writing our own diary from the perspective of Bear. We will retell the main events of Bear's amazing trip to the city using emotive language, rhetorical questions and after thoughts. In our Grammar session we will look at how parenthesis are used.


Maths: This week we will be comparing fractions and converting improper fractions to mixed numbers and vice versa. Friday's maths lesson will be mental maths and timetables practise.


Autumn Term:


Topic: Our topic for the first term will be the Tudor Explorers. We will begin by looking at who the Tudors were, the time period they lived in and specifically who the Tudor explorers were and how significant some of their discoveries have been. We will further be looking at some map work to help us understand where some of these discoveries have been made.


RE: In RE our topic will be Sikhism, we will be looking at the core values of this religion whilst also reflecting upon our own values. We will be learning about important aspects of the religion such as the holy book and places of worship.


Science: Our first science topic is 'light' we will be learning the difference between artificial and natural light sources, how light travels and carrying out a range of investigations to look at shadows.





PE - Outdoor PE is on Friday afternoon (weather permitting), children need tracksuit bottoms, white t-shirt, a jumper and trainers.  Indoor PE is a Thursday afternoon. For this children need black shorts and a white t-shirt. For health and safety purposes, all jewellery and watches must be removed. There will also be opportunities for outside learning on a Thursday (again weather permitting) in which the children will need suitable outdoors and a warm coat for when the weather becomes colder.



Homework will be 30 minutes on TT rock stars over the week and reading 3 times a week (Reading logs must be brought in on a Monday to be checked).

Spellings will be handed out on a Friday in preparation for the spelling test the following Wednesday.

Topic homework is linked to our Science topic (Staying Alive) and must be completed no later than the 29th November ready for a Year 6 Showcase event.

All children must read at least three times a week at home.


TT Rockstars - I hope to have many TT Rockstar champions in our class: in order to stay on top of the leader-board, children should try and log on to their Time Table Rockstar account as much as possible.
