Welcome to Year 5/6
Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. McCarthy
This week we have been looking at poetry. We have continued on from our WWI war poetry, commemorating the end of the Great War and we are now looking a poem called The Spider and the Fly, absorbing its rich language.
In maths, year 5 children have worked on square and cube numbers and have been learning different methods of calculating multiplication. Year 6 have been finding the lowest common multiple which will come in very handy when adding or subtracting fractions which have different denominators.
Year 6 children have had some tests to see where there are areas to spend more teaching time and we have all been putting ideas together for our class assembly which will take place on Friday 23rd November - all parents welcome.
Children have designed their Lunar Buggies and will now be making the first prototype before assessing its feasibility.
We also have our trip to Leicester Space Centre to look forward to in December. Our Christmas carol service, to which parents are invited will also take place in December; dates will be announced via our school newsletter.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries.
