Lest We Forget: World War One Centenary
“They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”
Welcome back to a new school year! This term will be based around the topic 'We Will Remember'. In Year 5/6 we will be learning about World War One.
During the Autumn term, we will be using a range of texts linked to our topic to write in different genres and for a variety of audiences. We will write a narrative, poetry, persuasive texts and recounts whilst using other key texts as inspiration. In our maths lessons, we will start with looking at place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Through our geography and history work, we will investigate a variety of themes, from the causes of The Great War to famous battles and the role of women and life at home. In science, we will investigate the human body, looking at diet, exercise and the role of the digestive system.
Our topic web and overview are available to download and give an idea of what we will be learning across the curriculum.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
Reading is a vitally important skill for your child to practise regularly. Now we are in Year 5 and 6, the emphasis when reading at home should be on your child's comprehension and understanding of the text. Reading may be from a fiction book, information text, newspaper or a magazine. I am always interested to find out what you have been reading and your recommendations are gratefully recieved as we encourage children to develop their preferences, interests and enthusiasm. Please try to read at home and question your child's understanding at least 3 times a week.
Another vitally important part of our learning in school is the recall of times tables up to 12 x 12, including the related division facts. There is also a list of words which children should be able to spell by the end of year 6 in order to meet the required standard. We aim for children to accurately spell at least 50% of these by the end of year 5 and 100% by the end of year 6. This list will be sent home in September with children's homework books. We would greatly appreciate your help at home with practising these spellings and times tables!
Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (SPaG), Reading comprehension and Maths homework will be issued weekly on a 3 week rota. Homework will be given on a Friday and expected to be handed back in on the following Wednesday. These will be specific pages to be completed in your child’s own individual work books. Information and extension activities will be posted on the pupils class homework page for reference.
