A big focus within Year 5/6 this year continues to be using and applying our Maths knowledge.
Below are links to two documents showing what children should know and be able to do in maths by the end of year 5 and 6:
Children should also practise their times tables using the TT Rockstars app. During home learning, children will be set 5 days of progressive learning. Each day will build upon the previous day with a video to explain each lesson.
Our Topic Work ~

Throughout this term in school we will be exploring a different theme each week:

There will be a variety of lessons to complete and enjoy.

We will look at: Beliefs and Practices Christianity
We will be sending home a range of different lessons that have built upon the learning from Terms 1 and 2.
Rights Respecting School
The convention applies to every child whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, abilities, whatever they think or say, no matter what type of family they come from.
We will spend some time in class thinking about what this means and share our thoughts in Assembly towards the end of Term 3.
