Welcome back Kingfishers’ year 5 and 6s!
Welcome back to Term 6. We hope you have all had a lovely and restful week off. We cannot believe it is the final term of the academic year, but we have lots of exciting learning planned for the children.
Our topic this term is ‘Natural resources’. We will be identifying different natural resources and explaining how they are used. Furthermore, we will look at ways in which they are used to produce energy. We will also look at clean and renewable energy and how steel, glass and concrete are produced using natural resources.
We will be having a lesson of PE with Mr Murphy. The children will be learning about different athletics skills and practising them. They will also be undertaking multi-skills sessions and track time. They will need to wear their PE kits in on a Wednesday and a Thursday.
We are moving ever closer to the year 6s starting their new secondary schools. Please see the curriculum letter above for some important dates regarding this. Year 5 parents will also see there are some key dates for open evenings for both Sheldon and Hardenhuish.
The children have their times table targets and will receive their new spellings during week 1 of term 6. Please see below the 6 week overview for each spelling group.
As ever, please keep in contact via ClassDojo should you have any questions or queries.
Ms Hull and Mrs Kay 🙂
