Within the classroom, we will all model and build the characteristics of good learners through developing good learning habits and through an ethos of growth mindset and the power of 'not yet'. Our exciting topic is 'Changes' linking to the environment, humans and school, as we all help Year 6 prepare for their next step in their learning. This term is due to be extremely busy with extra PE clubs after school, exciting trips and beach cleans to mention but a few things in the pipeline.
We are all really looking forward to returning to school as first week back we embark on 3 days at CRS River Dart adventures. For the following two weeks in the morning we will be preparing and revising for Year 6 Sats which start on Monday 13th May.
In RE we will be introducing the core beliefs in Islam and learning how Muslims show commitment to God and comparing this to our own values and beliefs.
In Science, children will learn about evolution and inheritance and then move on to the circulatory system thinking about life style choices.
We will also celebrate 50 years since the landing of Apollo 11 with a mini child led project lasting a week.
Children will have swimming sessions on Thursday afternoon starting May 2nd until half term. On Tuesday mornings, they will learn Rugby with Sam Teasdale a Cornish Pirate.
Our theme in IT will be coding, making an app to measure distance and amount of turn leading on to more work on e-safety.
Please support your children where ever possible by hearing them read, asking them questions and record reading in Reading record books. Times tables will be essential to your child not just in their primary learning but in Secondary education and beyond, as such - time spent learning these is never wasted time!
Home learning will be set weekly and will be a combination of Maths and Literacy plus one piece of Topic work per half term.
If you need any further assistance about the way we work in the classroom please feel free to come and see me at the start or the end of the day.
