Charles Darwin’s Voyage of Discovery!

“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”

 

Welcome back to Summer term! This term we will be basing our learning around the theme of 'survival'. The children are already enthused and I cannot wait to see what they think we are going to get up to! We will be basing some of our learning on a book called 'The Explorer' and delving deeper into the different environments and settings within the book (the rest of the story will remain a secret... for now). We will be learning about the survival of many creatures as well as humankind, including how different people around the world survive and thrive in circumstances very different to our own. On top of this, our learning about evolution and inheritance will take us back millions of years to investigate how - and why - life has changed.

As always, our school life is jam-packed! I am really looking forward to this last term of school. The effort all the children have been showing is fantastic - I can't wait to see it continue.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Homework Club:

For this term, I will be running a homework club on a Monday lunch time. This is not compulsory, but is available for those children who would like some help with their homework. All they need to do is bring their homework to me and ask for help! I hope this helps with any homework difficulties you may have been experiencing. 

 

Reading

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.

 

Home Learning

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!

 

Homework

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.

 

Science at Middlewich High School

We are lucky enough to have the opportunity to spend some afternoons with the science department at Middlewich High School completing work and solving problems linked to our science learning in school. The resources and equipment available under the guidance of subject specialist teachers will provide a wonderful opportunity to inspire children.
