PE is on a Thurday afternoon with our coach from Sports Plus. All children will need to have a P.E kit in school throughout the week as we are offering a range of lunchtime clubs.
In English, we begin with an exciting narrative unit focused on the book 'The Ghost of Thomas Kempe'. The children, as always, will be working on improving their ability to use exciting Vocabulary, Conjunctions, Openers and Punctuation (VCOP) in their writing across the whole year, and we look forward to some more opportunities for experiential writing.
In Maths, children will begin the term looking at fractions, decimals and percentages. As always, children will continue to be mastering the four calculation skills by solving problems and proving their answers. Please continue to help your child with times tables and number bonds as these skills are always beneficial with all the units we will learn throughout the year.
Throughout the term, topic work will be based on 'Exciting Explorers.' This will include studying exploration, why people decided to explore and significant people from this time.
Finally, in Science this term, children will be developing their scientific enquiry skills by studing 'Evolution and Inheritance.'

Year 5 and Year 6 are very important years and we hope children will be enthusiastic, well-organised and determined to succeed. We look forward to getting to know our new classes and thank you in advance for your continued support outside of school.
Thank you for your support,
