Our Long Row Hero of the week is:
For being enthusiastic, resilient, hard-working and a joy to have in the class!
Our current whole class aims:
Reading: We love reading in Year 5/6. We are 'Reading to Red' to achieve a sticker at the end of every week, but we must read at least three times, although the more times, the better! We are doing very well at the moment, lots of people achieved their ten stickers this week!
We are developing shared reading strategies.
We are focusing on the following strategies (try these at home too!)
We are becoming more confident every day!
We are learning all about Fractions, Decimals and Percentages.
The children have been adding, subtracting and multiplying fractions, mixed numbers and integers. We found it tricky at first, but are now superstars!
The children have just found out that 'percentage' means 'out of 100'
It is so important for children to know their timestables, all children have a TT Rockstars login. TT Rockstars is the key to success for multiplication, division and fractions!
Our current focus: Writing an information text
We are currently writing an information text about the heart! We have used 'The Snoozatron' to help us understand information texts and causal connectives.
Our last topic was newspaper reports and the writing produced was of an exceptionally high quality. Mrs Davies and I are very proud of you all!
We are learning all about the heart and the body!
We have dissected hearts, been the blood in the human circulatory system and painted images of the heart so far.
The children are thoroughly enjoying their new topic, we have plenty of new biologists in the making!
We are currently learning all about the human body with a focus on the heart.
Last half term we learnt all about forces,
We have had lots of fun last half term. We made parachutes to test air resistance, boats to test water resistance and looked at how a bump on the head helped everyone learn about gravity.
We have PE on a Monday and Friday, we are currently learning lots about netball.
Please ensure you have full kit in school on these days. All long hair must be tied back, and all earrings must be taken out.
