Are you fed up with asking the question 'How was school today?' and getting the response 'fine'?
Our new weekly blogs will give you more information about what your child is doing in school. This will mean that you can ask meaningful questions to find out about their learning.
Week commencing 18th November 2019.
In Maths this week Year 6 will be learning to multiply decimals, Year 5 will be continuing their learning on time tables and starting to look at multiples . During English Year 6 will be consolidating their learning on Remembrance and will be creating their own World War 1 poetry. Year 5 will be busy publishing their work on newspaper reports linked to the Percy Jackson text. Year 6 were lucky with the weather last week, during their outdoor science lesson, all the children worked well as a team and were able to enjoy the practical side to our learning about plants, Year 5 continued to learn about reproduction in plants in class. In topic lessons this week we will be learning about map skills, in particular identifying and understanding lines of longitude, latitude, equator and meridian. We are continuing to concentrate on improving our reading skills across the phase and we would welcome support from home to ensure that children are reading daily and being provided with opportunities to discuss what has been read. If you feel as a parent or carer, you would like further insight into how to engage in reading effectively with your child, watch this space – parent sessions to follow! We would like to thank you for your continued support.
