Forest School Dates-
No Forest School sessions due to the weather and the impact this has had on the Forest School area.
Sessions will commence after the Easter break.
UKS2 Termly Overviews
We are following the FOCUS scheme for English which is based on the in depth study of a book. Over 5-6 weeks the children will do lots of discussion, role play and writing based on this book.
This term will be reading Beowulf by Michael Morpurgo and an adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth.
We will have weekly grammar lessons to allow the children to practise the skills learned.
We would like your children to read at least three times a week at home, more if possible. We have a reward system in place where your child’s diary is stamped along with their reading card, and prizes to be won too.
Spellings rules are taught throughout the week. These are based on the Common exception word list for year 5 and 6. New word lists are sent out on Monday and tested on Friday. We will also be covering spelling rules based on the year 5 spelling curriculum.
Willow Weekly Spellings
We follow the year 5 Maths curriculum. We focus on one objective each week and the aim is that all children have mastered this by the end of the week. This will be through practise and consolidation activities including using pictures and resources such as place value counters.
Each week the children will complete a times tables test. It is expected that by the time the children are in year 5, that they all have rapid recall of ALL tables facts up to 12×12.
Please encourage and support your child with accessing TT Rockstars to help them to practise their tables facts. https://play.ttrockstars.com/
Examples of tables facts tests used
This term we will be learning about Forces.
