Summer 2 2024

Welcome back! We hope that you had a lovely rest over the half term break and are ready to get on with lots of exciting learning. We can't wait to get started!

During this half-term, our English will once more be based on a high quality text. We don't want to spoil the surprise and reveal the title just yet, but once more, we are sure that you will enjoy it.

In Maths we will be focussing lots on multiplication and division of fractions, as well as decimals, percentages, area, perimeter and volume.

For our history focus we will be considering 'Why did Britain once rule the largest empire the world has ever seen?'  The history Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below.

In Science, we will be working on the theme of 'Changes of Materials.' The Science Knowledge Organiser contains more details in the link below. 

In Art, we will continue to focus on craft and design with a focus on architecture.. In music, we will explore a new unit of singing and composition.  In Computing, our focus will be on concept maps. 

P.E. for Class 5 will be each Wednesday and Friday and the children should come into school wearing their P.E. kits on these days. 

Homework Timetable is attached below..

Please check the class page regularly for updates and photographs of what we have been getting up to in class.
