Welcome Back from Falcon Class

Posted on August 30th, 2017 by Falcon Class

I am really looking forward to seeing you all next Tuesday. I hope you have had a great summer and I am looking forward to hearing all about your holidays.
The classroom is all ready for you and Mrs D and I cannot wait to share and read your poetry!
Below is our overview for the term. I will keep you posted as to what is happening on a weekly basis. Our first day back we will be deciding and writing our class rules for the year. Our English will involve us thinking about what learning means to us and then comprehension skills for the rest of the week. In maths we will be looking at 6 digit number and number to 3 decimal places. See you on Tuesday have a great weekend. We will be thinking about how challenging ourselves helps us to learn- Great Growth Mind-set!

This outlines the autumn term ahead and what your children will be learning.

ENGLISH: Through our study of fiction, non-chronological report writing and poetry we will develop our writing skills, including the use of correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, vocabulary choices and text layout.

MATHS: This term number will involve factors and prime and square numbers. We will be using our skills to manipulate 6 digit numbers. We will study addition, subtraction, multiplication and division methods. We will develop our reasoning and mastery through problem solving and mastery challenges. We will begin to explain the different methods we could use to reach an answer. Times Tables and division facts up to 12 x 12 will be practised each week.
SPAG: Spellings, punctuation and grammar are of huge importance as we are now in Upper KS2 discreet grammar lessons will be taught alongside spelling rules. Suggested spelling rules and grammar skill can be found at https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/national-curriculum-in-england-english-programmes-of-study/national-curriculum-in-England-English-programmes-of-study#upper-key-stage-2–years-5-and-6 as appendix spelling and grammar files.

GEOGRAPHY: We will be learning about North America. Looking at the human and physical features of the northern states, including Mexico and Canada. As part of this topic we will spend time linked to history learning about Native Americans. A project will invite us to find out more about a different country. Watch out for this in your home learning.

Human and physical geography
Describe and understand key aspects of physical geography, including: climate zones, time zones and six- figure grid references.

ART: The children will improve their mastery of art and design techniques, including drawing and printing. They will begin to evaluate and analyse creative works using the language of art, craft and design. We will look at art through the decades since 1948

SCIENCE: Living things, habitats. Animals; including humans.
We will describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the digestive system in humans.
We will describe the simple functions of the basic parts of the circulatory system in humans and look at the effects of exercise on our heart. We will record our findings using investigative skills.

R.E: We will turn our thoughts to: What makes a place special and be comparing these.

HISTORY: We will continue to develop a chronologically-secure knowledge and understanding of British, local and world history.
We will use research and secondary sources to find out about the life and times of Britain since 1948.

MUSIC: To develop skills exploring rhythm pulse and musical elements
Link to Topics- Exploring lyrics and Melody of music through the decades.

D.T: To work to create a 3d Structure using textiles and the skills of planning consumer awareness, organisation and perseverance
To test their product against our original design criteria.

P.E:
Skills and Fitness To be physically active for sustained periods of time and
compare their performances with previous ones demonstrating improvement to achieve their personal best. Year 6 will be swimming.

COMPUTING: Children investigate the concept of “big data” and its use in the world. They review file types and protection. They explore binary form and develop understanding of computer networks. They search more efficiently and investigate their digital footprints, building safe and responsible use of online spaces. They create and search flat-file databases, developing accuracy and efficiency.

JIGSAW: Puzzle 1 (Being Me in My World), gives the class a process for everyone to be involved in the production or review of the class positive behaviour policy. Rights, responsibilities, rewards and consequences are built on the belief that each child has the right and the capacity to make his/her own
