Y5/6: Mr Preston's Class 2017 - 2018

Mr Preston

Welcome to the Autumn Term

During this Autumn Term we have many exciting topics and projects coming up. It's a great opportunity for us to get back into routine, learn new skills and develop as learners.

What’s happening this term

During this Autumn Term we will be looking at our topic, "The Battle Of Britain". This is an exciting topic based on how this major event in history effected the people living in Britain, the children and families who were evacuated and how the Battle of Britain was won.

We will be starting Swimming lessons beginning the week commencing the 11th of September, so swimming kits will be needed in school every Tuesday.

Science lessons will begin looking at Electricity with a particular focus on writing up the method for particular experiments. We will then move on to Changing Materials.

Spellings will being with a focus on important topic words and then be split into ability groups for all children.

Class Rules

  • Listen to each other
  • Put your hand up and don’t shout out
  • Treat each other with respect
  • Take care of the school and its equipment
  • Try your best at all times



Homework will be given out every Wednesday for Literacy, Numeracy and Spellings for a test every Friday. Homework that needs to be handed in will be collected on a Monday morning.

We will be having a particular focus on Timestables each week, so any extra time spent learning these will benefit your child greatly.


Every pupil has been given a Reading Record that is to be used in school and taken home with their chosen reading book. The expectation is that they will read at least three times to themselves out of school and record this in the book. Ideally, at least one of these sessions will be to an adult at home. This encourages your child to read and also gives you chance to see what progress they are making.

Reading Records will be collected in every Friday to be checked.


Indoor PE lessons will begin with Swimming on a Tuesday and outdoor PE on a Friday afternoon (Circuit Training). Their is an expectation that the correct PE kit will be in school on a Monday ready for the week ahead.

Children not in the correct PE kit will not be allowed to take part in the lesson.
