Let's Learn Together

Year 3

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.

Year 6

Next week we will be:
Completing our sewing and textiles projects – focusing on London and Rio. Furthermore, we will also be continuing with our end of year performance and finally continue to up-level our writing of the different genres.

Don’t forget:
-Remember to read at home and earn those DOJO points.

We are looking forward too:
-Our visit to London.
-Our end of year ‘Leaving Assembly’

We would like to share with our families:
-Thank you once again for your continued support. We are exceptionally proud of how each and every child approached their end of KS2 assessments.

Let's Learn Together

Year 3

Next week year 3 will be continuing our Picture This project. This week we have completed some outstanding learning for our display. We are proud of what we have achieved so far and are looking forward to finishing our display.

The children in Y3 have completed some amazing homework based on this project too so well done!

In numeracy we will be exploring addition and subtraction problems and extending our written method learning so we can apply it.

In writing lessons we are continuing with our biographies based on famous artists.

We are working hard with our times table practice and need to remember to practice these at home too.

Year 4

Next week in Y4, we’re continuing our fabulous fact finding about mountains and the people who live in them. As this week was so busy, we’ve moved our learning about the Adi people to next week.

We’re still walking a mile a day (weather dependent) so make sure you have your PE kit in school every day. If you’re in Mr Gill’s class, bring a coat, as he’s likely to have a walk round even if it is raining! 4MW also need to remember their swimming things on Wednesday. 

Maths in 4MW will be looking at continuous data, in 4D and 4G will applying mathematical skills to a range of puzzles and problems. Remember to practice your multiplication and division facts until you know them inside out!

In RE, we’ll be studying the 5th pillar of Islam, the Hajj. Perhaps you could think of any places you think are important to visit in your life time?

Year 5

In the penultimate week of this half term (hasn’t it gone fast?), we will be continuing our theme of Alchemy Island through poetry and narrative writing in English. Linked to music we will start to look at song lyrics and how they compare to poetry and their use of language. We will be discovering gemstones hidden on the island and writing mysterious cinquain poems to describe them and what power they may hold!

In science we will, as alchemists, be growing our own crystals and learning about dissolving and evaporation along with related science vocabulary.

In mathematics we will be moving on from fractions to working with decimals to 3 decimal places and solving problems that require knowledge of percentages and decimal equivalents. 

Year 6

A huge well done to our Y6 children who worked tremendously hard last week during their SATS.  They should all be very proud of themselves.

Next week the children will be working creatively on a range of projects including focus work on the Olympics.  Some children will be researching and working statistically in preparation for the upcoming residential visit to London.

To link with the Children’s Festival – Y6 will be beginning their work on the ‘Picture This’ project.
