TOPIC – Our topic this half term is ‘Being Human’, in which we're looking at each of the main body systems and how to keep them healthy. Diet and food is covered, including a special “I’m a Celebrity…” challenge, linked to English.
ENGLISH – Our focus text this half term is ‘How to Eat Fried Worms’ by Thomas Rockwell. The children have produced some fantastic work based on this book, but will any of them be brave enough to take on the challenge themselves in class?
PE – Please note that PE is on MONDAY and WEDNESDAY afternoons. Children must have their kits to be fully engaged in these sessions.
HOMEWORK – Homework continues to be handed out each Friday and is due in by the following Wednesday. Homework will mainly consist of English and Maths, with some topic work as required.
SPELLINGS – Don't forget to practise spellings at home! Each child has been given a copy of the Year 5 and 6 spelling list for ongoing practice.
Piano day is Tuesday for those continuing to learn piano.
As always, your ongoing support is very much appreciated.
