Mrs Sarah Hall

Y5/6LB

 

Welcome to Year 5/6 LB

 

Welcome back to Year 5/6 LB. Mrs. Bee, Mr. Taylor and Miss Lee hope you all had a lovely break and look forward to a busy new term.

 

Our topic this half term is ‘Walk like an Egyptian’.

 

English

In English we will be reading

The Red Pyramid

written by Rick Riordan

 

 

Mathematics

Our mathematics focus will be:

· Volume and capacity

· Algebra

· Ratio and proportion

PE

Y5 & Y6: P.E. sessions for both year groups will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The children will need to bring both indoor and outdoor kit as they will be working outside for some sessions.

Black shorts; plain white t-shirt; a sweatshirt (without a hood); tracksuit bottoms and trainers.

 

Homework:

In Year 5/6 we feel homework is important as it prepares the children for secondary school. Homework tasks including spellings will be handed out on Monday to be returned on Friday.

 

 

Reading

As part of their homework children will be expected to read at home at least three times each week. In Year 5 and 6 it is not expected that they read aloud to an adult but if you know they have read at home, can we please ask that you sign their reading record.
