Maths

This term we are learning all about place value and using the four number operations. Please help support your child by giving them lots of opportunities to practise reading and writing numbers up to 10 000 000. Testing your child's times table knowledge will also be very beneficial - they should know them all up to 12x12 including the inverse. 

 

English

We are writing stories this term for our Epic Citadel topic. We will also be utilising our upcoming residential trip to inspire us to write a variety of non-fiction texts.  

 

Reading

We are encouraging the children to read as much as possible at home starting now!  This week, each child should have brought home a blue reading diary.  If they can read on at least five out of seven days of each week, they will receive a merit.  Reading is the cornerstone for so much of a child's learning and it is vitally important that your child reads as much as possible.

Our class reader will be Wolf Brother, a tale of a boy caught up in a battle with a mystical wolf.

If you haven't discovered Bug Club yet, then make sure you have a look.  All the children have their login details and it is a great, fun way of moving on in their reading ability.

 

Spellings

These are the National Curriculum spellings for year 5 and 6 - we will be working on these throughout the year alongside other spelling patterns.
