Spring Term 1

Welcome back, we hope you have had an amazing Christmas and New Year. This term we will be studying electricity, looking at how voltage affects brightness and volume, learning the symbols used in electricity and exploring how different electrical components function. During maths sessions, we will be focusing on time and the order of operations, alongside daily calculation. In English, we will be basing our work on the book ‘The Peacock Garden’ and writing persuasively along with lots of reading and SPaG to prepare for SATs. Please make sure you keep up with TT Rockstars, My Maths and Spelling Shed- see if you can get a dip in that box!

Autumn Term 2

Welcome back, after what we hope was a week of relaxing, to another busy half term. We have lots of learning to do over the next seven weeks in the run up to Christmas and hope you are prepared to work hard! We will start the half term by introducing our new topic which focuses on the human body and the circulatory system. We will dissect a lamb's heart and lungs and explore the components of blood to try to understand how our heart and lungs work together to keep us alive. We will use this learning to write an explanation text during our English sessions. Other English sessions will include looking at biographies and writing about Ben Parkinson, writing a letter to give advice on how to stay healthy and we will also focus some of our writing around Christmas in the run up to the holidays.
During our maths sessions, we will be focusing on fractions and decimals, shape and  statistics. We will continue to practice arithmetic in daily calculation. Please make sure you are still using TT Rockstars and completing your MyMaths and Spelling Shed homework.

Autumn Term 1

I hope you have all had a fantastic summer break and that we are all raring to get on with the new term – the start of the final year at East Bierley!

We will begin our English lessons looking at the book, ‘Wonder’ with Mrs Moxon and, ‘The Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ with Miss Tipple. Both books explore relationships between children so for this reason these books will also be the basis for our PHSE lessons. Our overriding theme for the term in being kind.

As you were all so great at Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed in Year Five, we’re looking forward to you impressing us with your commitment to setting a great example to the rest of the school! Hope you have been keeping up with it over the summer.

Mrs Moxon is looking forward to getting you all back and Miss Tipple is looking forward to starting your Year 6 journey with her.
