Here are some useful websites for you to look at over the next few weeks

Summer 2 in Class 9WM!

Welcome to our fabulous class!

Teachers are: Mrs Wormstone, Monday - Thursday morning and Mrs Marshall, Thursday and Friday 

 

We hope that you have had a lovely break and that you will find the overview for the next half term helpful.

 

 

 Summer Year 5/6 Theme:

Creative Curriculum Theme

 

Will we ever see the water we drink again?

In this theme we shall explore the importance and many uses of water. To help answer the theme learning question, we will learn about the water cycle. We will then go on to explore the ways that water reaches our homes and what happens to the water we have used.

This learning will also lead us onto questions regarding water sustainability and how the power of water is harvested through constructions such as the Aswan Dam.

Helpful websites to look at this half term!

P.E. Kits

Here is a reminder of the items that children need in school for this statutory lesson.

Indoor - white t-shirt, burgundy shorts and indoor pumps.

Outdoor - a warm tracksuit (preferably dark in colour) and outdoor trainers. School shoes are not allowed as the field can be too wet and muddy and can ruin them.

A letter will be sent home when children forget their kit to inform parents and ask for support to ensure that their child brings the correct kit for all future lessons.
