Year 5/6 - Sycamore and Oak
Spring Term 2021
Welcome back everyone! We hope you're enjoying working remotely on Google Classroom!
In English, Sycamore and Oak class will be reading Stormbreaker. This unit of work will help bridge the gap between lesson objectives missed during the lock-down period and this terms work. The main focus this term will be on Grammar and punctuation and building up comprehension skills.
We will continue to be working on our basic maths arithmetic skills. We will be encouraging the children to give reasons for their thinking and explain any mathematical concepts they have used. Through this, we hope the children will grasp the mastery elements of what we have been learning about. This term we will continue to do a lot of recapping and making sure their fluency skills are embedded.
Throughout this term we will be continuing with our topic on Earth and Space and then moving onto Animals including humans. These units allows the children the chance to promote their scientific curiosity and understanding.
We will be continuing with our topic about World War I and II and looking at how things have changed since WWII.
In Geography, we will be exploring St Lucia, looking at its climate, population and landscape and comparing that to our own locality.
In Music, we will be using Oak National Academy to explore pulse and rhythm.
Art / D.T.
In art we will be looking at the different techniques we can use to create different effects whilst focusing on Flander's Field.
In P.E. we want you to all get active by following the daily links provided by Google Classroom. This will help everyone with their Mental Health, so come on parents you can join in too!
We love exploring the units on 1Decision. They are giving the children a good insight into the world and offering advice on how to conduct themselves as good and honest citizens, whilst keeping themselves safe at all times. Our social media unit was particularly effective. We are excited to continue learning about citizenship.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mr Zaim, Mrs Foulkes and Mrs Bowen
