Year 6

We said farewell to our Y6 children and Monday 20th June sees the beginning of their new journey into secondary education.

The children shared their special memories as part of their leaver’s work and we too have many special memories of the past 4 years.

We are all thinking of you as you begin this new adventure.

Our Y6 children had an amazing time in London last week.

I think one of the main highlights for the children was seeing the Lion King at the Lyceum Theatre.

This was a wonderful visit to conclude Y6 – making fond memories to last a lifetime.

‘My child really enjoyed the visit. He will be leaving school with many happy memories but this has definitely been a wonderful end to his time at Bramley Sunnyside. Thank you for working hard to provide our children with so many opportunities. ‘ (Y6 Parent Comment)

Year 3

After the half term break, Y3 will be starting our new English based learning project – ‘Heroes and Villans’ This exciting topic will allow us to explore a range of different heroes and villains in literature both in history and more recent. We will be learning how to read for information; pick out key facts; ask and answer questions; skim and scan and how to structure answers in comprehension questions.

In writing lessons we will be learning how to describe characters as well as settings for traditional tales. SPaG bootcamp will involve us embedding conjunctions by using them correctly in our writing.

Our creative learning will still be based on Picture This. We have been working so hard to produce high quality work for this project. We will let you all know when you can view this display.

We are looking forward to seeing some amazing costumes for our dress up day on the first day back after spring bank as well as some amazing creative homework. Tweet us your masterpieces and preparations to the schools Twitter account as we would love to see them. @bramleyju

Year 4

In the first week of Summer 2 Year 4 will begin to explore the magical world of potions.

In English, we will be exploring and dissecting William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and the part potions had to play in this tragic tale. We will use storyboards to retell the story before writing an alternative (and happier) ending.

In Science will begin to explore the properties of solids. liquids and gases and the behaviour of their particles. We will examine water in its 3 different states and use marbles to demonstrate the way its particles move at different temperatures.

In maths, will will continue our learning in multiplication and division. We will be consolidating our learning of the formal written method of division as well as making sure our knowledge of the multiplication tables is embedded ready for Year 5. Keep practising them at home as often as you can.

4MW will continue with their swimming lessons on Wednesday mornings and PE for the whole of Year 4 will be on Wednesday afternoons. Please remember to have a water bottle, hat and sun cream in school as the weather hopefully becomes warmer.

Year 5

Next half term in Y5, we will be starting our exciting new topic, ‘Beast Creator’.
This will involve studying the weird and wonderful world of minibeasts and really getting to grips with the animal kingdom through the exploration of habitats and adaptation.
We will be having a fantastic start to this topic through our visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park during the second week. We are very excited about this!

We really hope that you enjoy the creative homework projects that we have set as these will really give you a head start to your learning for this half term. We can’t wait to see what you have managed to create!

During our first week back, we will be starting our maths units on negative numbers and problem solving. We will also begin to explore reflective symmetry which will link wonderfully to our work on butterflies later in the term.

Year 6

Next week we will be:
We will combining each country created before half term within our classes to create a class map and discuss the positives and negatives of working collaboratively with other countries – considering the way of life, the country’s rules and various other factors. Some children will then be heading to their own capital city ‘London’ for our year 6 residential where they will be visiting the theatre, museums and M&M world. Other children will be based in school, having lots of fun, creating their own enterprise projects.

Don’t forget:
-Remember to read at home and earn those DOJO points.
-The London residential is Wednesday 8th to Friday 10th June.
-Sports Day afternoon will take place on Monday 6th June PM.

Next week in Y3 we will be continuing with our ‘Picture This’ topic.  We are enjoying using a range of materials to create designs for the upcoming school display.

We will be learning skills in marbling, felting and silk painting.

In maths we will be thinking about the value of numbers through addition and subtraction.  Remember also to practice those times tables.

In our writing lessons we are continuing to create our Picasso information texts.  We are enjoying trying to bring our SPAG learning into this and apply it in different ways.

Year 4

In the final week before half term, we’ll be having some ”Super Fun Maths Challenges’ and showing our Spelling Punctuation and Grammar skills online. (Yes folks you’ve guessed it, it’s an assessment week!)

We’re still on the road to Rio and will be completing a daily mile if the weather holds!Remember your PE kit should be in school EVERY DAY! 4MW will still be swimming Wednesday.

Our Mountain topic continues with more learning about the people living in the Himalayas and in 4G there will be more morning map work to generate your geographical knowledge. 

All three classes will be doing a little more on our ‘Picture This’ learning, so whether its Paul Klee’s Castle and Sun or Pablo Picasso’s Weeping Woman, lets hope you’ve your abstract ideas in full flow!

Year 5

Next week in Y5, we will be finishing off our ‘Alchemy Island’ topic.

We will working on riddles, poetry and narrative as past of our last units of writing for this topic and will also be working hard to complete our artwork which has been inspired by the setting of ‘Alchemy Island’.

In maths we will be consolidating our learning for this half term. This will involve finishing our unit on shapes and their properties and then moving on to revision of the four operations.

In SPaG, we will be revising all of the areas we have been learning about over this half term in preparation for the upcoming assessments which the children will be able to complete on iPads or laptops. This is something that the children really enjoyed last term so I am sure they will do there absolute best and have fun at the same time! For those children who have already completed their SPaG assessment, there will be opportunity to look at areas of strength and those that we will need to work on during next half term.

Just a quick reminder that the letter for our Y5 visit to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in June has been sent out to you all. If you could return this by the date outlined on the letter, that would be very much appreciated.
