Y5/6: Mrs Ashdown's Class 2020 - 2021
Welcome to the Spring Term
Welcome back to school for the start of 2021! We're looking forward to seeing you all settle back and continuing to be the best you can be.
What’s happening this term...
During this Spring Term, we will be looking at our new topic: 'Anglo Saxons'. During this topic, we will be looking at how the Anglo Saxons lived, what they were like as people and what they did that changed history!
Science is - Forces and conducting our own experiments.
Spellings will be focusing on specific patterns, words from the statutory spelling lists and also some WOW words to expand vocabulary. These will be introduced each week on a Monday and the children will be tested on a Friday. A letter containing the spellings for the half term will be sent home and a copy has also been added to this page.

Homework for now will be focused around: spellings and their Year 5&6 grammar homework books (where the set pages are to be uploaded on to teams via a photo every week).
Timestable and division practise is to be completed weekly also using Timestable Rockstars in order to maintain quickfire recall (which is essential for a whole range of numeracy topics such as fractions and measurements).
Any parents wishing to complete additional learning at home are of course welcome to do so.
