PE is on a Thursday 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 the Autumn term with the exciting narrative 'The Time Travelling Cat’ and the poem 'Macavity'. Following this, we will be moving onto 'The Midnight Fox'.
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. Spelling will focus upon the National curriculum words for Year 5 and 6- National Curriculum Spellings- alongside the spellings that are sent home weekly in RWI spellings.
In Mathematics, Year 5 and 6 will start with Place Value and developing their understanding through reasoning and problem solving. Following this, both year groups will be moving onto addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, statistics and measurement.
This year we will introducing TT Rockstars as part of our teaching of times tables skills. 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 ‘The Ancient Egyptians'. This will include studying the history of Ancient Egypt and the various roles in their society. We will contrast an Ancient Civilisation with Cannock.
Finally, in Science this term, children will be developing their scientific enquiry skills by studying 'Our Bodies.'

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