All the tests will be in the morning with normal lessons in the afternoons.

We had a fantastic 3 days at PGL - all the children participated fully in the activities on offer and PGL staff comented more than once how well behaved our children were - a big thank you to all! Have a look at our revised (again) timetable to familiarise yourself with the changes. Mornings now include daily revision sessions to allow us to consolidate preparation for the SATs tests in May, but for some afternoons Y5 will join Y6 for lessons. We have had to move subjects around again to ensure all pupils access all areas of learning.



What are we learning about this term?


Topic: Local Famous people - after your recent exploration of the local area, you will learn about a whole variety of local people who have had an influence in all areas of life.




English: Until the SATs tests are completed, lessons will be used to prepare for both reading and grammar. After this, we will be doing lots of writing - whenever possible linked to science and topic.




Maths: we will be revisiting all topic areas in maths  and will work on our problem solving and reasoning techniques using past SATs paper questions to test ourselves.



Science: 'Human Body'. You will be building on prior knowledge of the digestive and skeletal systems of the body to find out about the circulatory system including the heart and lungs. We also have puberty talks booked that will help you to understand growing up.






Computing: 'Stop Motion Animation', 'Code' and 'Programming'; you will be continuing to aquire the knowledge and skills needed to keep safe on the internet as well as create fun comics and fabulous artwork. 



RE / PSHE: RE work will focus on Identity, Diversity & Belonging. Mrs Fish will help you to develop your understanding of religion through learning about key religious festivals & lifestyles. You will study Islam this year as your focus set of beliefs. PSHE will consider Moral Values as well as Knife Crime.



Other subjects will be taught by the following:

Music: Mrs McAllister

Spanish: Congleton High School

PE: Sports Coaching North West 



What do we need to remember to bring to school?



Our PE days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure you bring your kit (white T-shirt, black shorts / skirts/ jogging bottoms and trainers). PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL ITEMS ARE COMPLETELY PLAIN; NO LOGOS/ MOTIVES. All long hair should be tied back and under no circumstances should jewellery be worn.



Homework tasks  will be given out almost daily in small amounts to address individual gaps in understanding.



Please remember to bring your reading book and reading record every day in order to read in class and to an adult if necessary.

You are responsible for changing your reading book on a regular basis, so please remember to use the chart on the wall in the classroom for me to keep track of your reading. Please remember to ask an adult at home to sign your reading record each week.



Finally, if you should have any questions about our class, don't forget to ask!
