Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6.

Year 5/6 Summer Term 2018

Welcome back everyone. We are excited to start our final term of the year and what will be, for some of you, your final term of primary school! Our learning this term will be linked to all things weird and wonderful in the World. We will explore natural disasters, extreme weather and climate, habitats and life cycles. You will also enjoy a carousel of lessons on an afternoon with the different teachers leading street dance or tennis, topic and computing. (We will let you guess who!). Can you also remember to have an indoor and outdoor P.E. kit in school at all times.

Home Learning

We would like to say a massive well done to you all for continuing to produce creative home learning projects. You are learning so many new skills and never fail to impress us with your imaginative approach to the tasks. Your new task is to explore what makes Earth extreme. We can’t wait to see your discoveries in our next home learning gallery!

Super Learners

In the next few weeks, we will be working flexibly in different groups to help you prepare for the challenges ahead as best we can. Remember to ask if you are unsure of anything and be proactive with your independent learning. You will be given a maths file that can be taken home daily. You can share your learning and practise more examples if you feel you would like to.

We already know the interest you take in your child’s work. If you can, please discuss with your child the work they have done as the term progresses and let them teach you if they can! Please continue to share your child’s reading with them on a daily basis.

Mathletics/Home learning

You should be completing your Mathletics tasks every week and a home learning task fortnightly. Remember that in Y5/6 we have resources to loan and a homework club in the ICT suite to help you with these.

Spelling lists for the whole term will soon be in your child’s planner and will be tested on Tuesdays. Just to remind you that pupils are asked to spend 20 minutes per week on Mathletics. The Y5/6 teachers run a home learning club every Thursday lunch time where many pupils enjoy using the ICT suite and school resources to work on their home learning tasks. If you have any questions regarding your child’s time at St Oswald’s, please don’t hesitate to contact a member of our team.

Many thanks for your on-going support.

The Year 5/6 Team.
