This half term we shall be reading the novel Everest with AJ by Matt Dickinson and exploring and writing adventure stories based in different locations around the world. We shall also be creating travel reports based upon different biomes around the world.

In our spelling/ vocabulary sessions, we investigate spelling rules and patterns. Spellings will continue to be sent home as a new rule if investigated; please ensure your child practises these and applies them in writing. 

In addition to our English sessions, we have a daily whole class reading session. Reading fluency and stamina is vital in Y5 and 6, and we strongly encourage the children to read daily to continue to improve this and further expand their vocabulary and understanding.  We will visit the school library once a week to change books.

We also have daily arthmetic sessions which focus on basic number and calculation skills,including TT Rockstars.

Please check out My Maths tasks which are set weekly and relate to current learning. TT Rockstars is also a fantastic website to practise times tables.

In the first half of this term we shall be revisiting concepts of geography- locating the equator, Northern and Southern Hemispheres, and learning about longitude and latitude lines.

We shall then begin to find out about biomes around the world and their locations and key features, before completing more indepth research on a biome. 

In art, we shall be working on our colour skills to create collages using a range of materials.

In music, we shall be focussing on the work of composer Jean Sibelius using the BBC materials 'Ten Pieces'.
