We have produced 'Knowledge Organisers' for some of our projects this term. You can find the links to them below.
Please use these to revise key knowledge with your children at home.
To start off the term, we'll dive into 'The Caravan' by Pie Corbett, exploring its themes and elements. Afterwards, we'll get creative and craft our own warning tale, drawing inspiration from the text. Additionally, we'll switch gears and delve into 'The Giant's Necklace' by Michael Murpurgo, where we'll put our journalistic skills to the test by writing a newspaper report on the disappearance of the girl in the story.
In the first week, we will focus on Division. The second week will cover Multiplication and Division for Year 5 and Number and Fractions for Year 6. Week 3 and 4 will be dedicated to Fractions. In Week 5, we will continue with Fractions for Year 5 and Fractions and Measurement for Year 6. Week 6 will be all about Properties of Shape. Finally, in Week 7, we will have an Assessment.
You can support our learning at home by encouraging us to access Times Table Rockstars and helping us learn our KIRFs.
