Welcome Year 5/6 children and parents to our class web page.

Thank you to all the parents who made it to our Show and Share on Thursday. It was a great opportunity for the children to share their learning and build their confidence in performing. 

Every week we will post what your child is learning and also add any important information.

This Week(29/11/21): 

Maths: We will be finding factor pairs, highest common factor and lowest common multiple. We will continue to work on our daily practice revising the four operations, our knowledge of rounding, Roman Numerals, halving and doubling and finding fractions of amounts. Please continue to use Doodle Maths and TT Rockstars to practise number skills at home. Doodle Maths is an excellent resource and when used regularly, it can have a big impact on your child's progress. 

English: We will be writing our own non-chronological report based on the Miptor. We will use the key features of a non-chronological report in our writing and edit referring to these.  Our guided reading text is Wonder. Our focus will be on retrieval, explanation, inference and prediction questions this week. Our SPaG focus will be paragraphs, subheadings and hyphenated words. Our spelling focus will be the etymology of words and we will focus on the root word 'sign'. Our key spellings will be consignment, signature, reassignment, designation etc. We will also revise key spelling patterns taught last term and learn new common exception words from our Year 5/6 word list. Please continue to read every day at home because this will help you to make progress in your reading. We check reading records daily to monitor your reading at home and please ask a parent/carer to acknowledge any reading at home with a signature. 

Topic: We will be exploring the United Kingdom's weather and climate.

Maths: We learnt formal methods of division. We also solved problems involving division and multiplication. We worked on our daily practice revising the four operations, our knowledge of rounding, Roman Numerals, halving and doubling and finding fractions of amounts. Please continue to use Doodle Maths and TT Rockstars to practise number skills at home. Doodle Maths is an excellent resource and when used regularly, it can have a big impact on your child's progress. 

English: We looked at a non-chronological report about the Miptor. The children carried out a text analysis, learnt new vocabulary and explored the key features of this text type. Our guided reading text was a biography about Mae Jemison which linked with our science work on space. Our focus will be on retrieval, explanation, inference and prediction questions this week. Our SPaG focus was use of the correct tense and paragraphs. Our spelling focus was homophones. We also revised key spelling patterns taught last term and learnt new common exception words from our Year 5/6 word list. Please continue to read every day at home because this will help you to make progress in your reading.
