Y5/6: Mr Preston's Class 2018 - 2019

Mr Preston

Welcome to the Summer Term

Welcome back! During this Summer Term we will be looking at new and exciting topics, checking out our Learning Logs from the Easter Break and getting ready for our SATs!

What’s happening this term

During this Summer Term we will be looking at our topic, "The Mayans".This is a brilliant History topic looking at this wonderful, ancient civilization. We will be focusing on their culture, beliefs and practices and completing some exciting Art projects!

We will be continuing our indoor PE sessions with our gym coach, looking at Athletics and Striking and fielding.

Science lessons will begin looking at Living Things which follows on nicely from our work on Evolution in the previous term.

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

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.

Reading

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.

PE

Indoor PE lessons will begin with our gym coach teaching us Atheltics on a Monday.

Our second session of PE will be on a Thursday which is outdoors - striking and fielding

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