Avengers Assemble! Year 5/6 will be taught by Miss Whittle and will be supported by Miss Cowen, Mrs Wood and Mrs Morgan.

 

This autumn term our history topic is ‘Medieval Monarchs’ where we will be learning about the middle ages and Tudors including the infamous King Henry VIII, our VIPERS book (Divers Daughter) is also set in the middle ages and share important insights to different voices throughout history. Science lessons will be led by Mrs Morgan and will be full of experiments surrounding properties of materials. We look forward to a range in new knowledge during maths and English, including writing our own newspaper articles! In RE we are learning all about Sikhism and the different commitments that Sikhs make for their religion. In art we will be focusing on levelling up our drawing skills influenced by the artist Sarah Graham and her hyper-realistic, colourful sweet drawings.

 

Homework – Every week there will be class homework set online for your child to access – this will be set every Monday to complete for Friday (when we have our spelling test). Your child will be given login details for a website called Edshed (Spelling Shed and Maths Shed). With this login your child will be able to access their homework tasks. Tasks will include weekly spellings which children learn by playing fun games and maths-based challenges. The homework tasks will reflect our learning in school so please ensure they are completed on time, and supported by a parent/guardian or older sibling if needed.

 

PE – The Avengers have P.E every Tuesday and Thursday so PE kits should be brought in for these days. Pupils can keep their PE kits on their pegs. Any children with long hair should come to school with a bobble to tie it up. If your child wears earrings and cannot take them out on their own, please can you put tape on their ears before they come to school to prevent any accidents.
