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

Mr Preston

Welcome to the Spring Term

Welcome back after Christmas. During this Spring 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, "Rivers". This is a great Geography topic looking at the formation of and path taken by rivers. We will be studying their features and looking at how they effect the land around us.

We will be continuing our indoor PE sessions with our gym coach.

Science lessons will begin looking at Changing Materials with a particular focus on analysing the results of our experiments.

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 our gym caoch teaching us Gymnastics on a Monday.

Our second session of PE will be on a Thursday, also indoors with Dance being the focus.

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