Buzzards - Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Buzzards Class!

 

Hello, my name is Mrs Sissons and I am Buzzards class teacher!

 

Our teaching assistants are Miss Tubby, Miss Treleaven and Mrs Olver.  Mrs McDowell is our PPA teacher and Mr. Jones teaches us P.E. on a Thursday.

 

This term we plan to be exploring the following elements and subjects:

 

Design Technology: Food - What could be healthier?

Art & Design: NA

Science: Light and Shadow

R.E.: Why is the Torah so important to Jewish people.

P.E.: Thursday with Mr. Jones

History:  NA

Geography: Enough for everyone - world's resources and types of energy

Computing: Programming Music

PSHE/RSE: Relationships

MFL: Fruits & Animals

In English, we are reading and writing persuasively.

In maths, Year 5's are looking at area and fractions. Year 6 are consolidating topics ready for their KS2 assessments.

 

Homework will be set on a Friday and will include weekly spellings and an additional learning task. Spellings and K.I.R.F.S will need to be learnt weekly and the tasks completed and handed in by Wednesday of the following week at the latest.  

Additionally, children need to be reading frequently (ideally daily) and consolidating their mathematical skills on Times Table Rock Stars and Mathletics each week. Please have a look in the weekly home communication section for details of each week's homework.     

 

If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

 

Mrs Sissons
