Welcome to Year 5/6 LB
Hello and welcome to Year 5/6 LB. Mrs Bee and Miss Lee hope you all had a lovely half term break and look forward to another busy half term.
Our topic this half term is The Solar System. The children will be learning about how our solar system is made up, the planets, night and day and the moon.
In English we will be reading the novel The Jamie Drake Equation by Christopher Edge which links to our topic.
Our mathematics focus will be:
Y5: Swimming Monday am.
Y5 & Y6: P.E. Tuesday
Y6: P.E. Thursday
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.
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.
Children are encouraged to take their book home regularly and read it 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.
