Year 5 & 6

Welcome to our learning in Year 5 & 6 - Summer 1


Welcome back for the warmest third of the year – and the busiest on the top floor, particularly for the Year 6s!

This term in Year 5 and 6, we are continuing with our topic of Global Goals, and we will be focussing particularly on our role as citizens in the wider world, as well as thinking a lot about Global Warming and what we, as individuals as well as a society, can do to improve conditions.  We will be taking inspiration from the Climate  Change strikes like the one we here at Halstow had in the small playground last term.  We will also be looking at Greta Thunberg and her work towards climate change action, and linking this into what we can do especially for those of us leaving for Secondary School in September.

In Numeracy, we will be looking mainly at exam technique, and revising how to answer all different kinds of problems; we will also be doing lots of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar learning  and revision!

In Literacy, our focus will be on poetry; we will be linking this into our topic with lots of eco poetry – beginning with The Rainforest, by Judith Wright.  We will learn inference skills and use our own art and pictures to help us to understand the poems’ messages.  We will also learn about the language of poetry, figurative language and tools, and poetic devices.

In PHSE we will be learning about citizenship, and Science will be about evolution.  In PE, we will be continuing with our Weekly Mile, as well as learning the beginnings of tennis, and in DT we will be building the land yachts we worked on designing last term.

After a fantastic - and close - match for the staff vs Year 6 rounders this morning, it was another victory for the staff. Better luck to Year 5 for next year! And a big thank you to Year 6 for such wonderful sportsmanship, and for losing so graciously
