Our topic of Blood Heart continues this half term. We will be making and investigating samples of plasma as well as exploring the functions of blood.
We have now entered our revision period for SATs, which will be carried out in the week beginning 14th May. This will entail revisiting some work covered during Year 5 and Year 6. To make sure this time is as productive as possible, it is very important for your child to complete all homework, read and do some independent revision.
We will celebrate the completion of SATs with the residential to Northumberland, the following week.
In Maths we are focusing on the four operations, especially on working out how to complete a whole variety of problems in words. It is also important that your child fully knows their times tables and can apply these to fractions and percentages. Regular practice at home really helps.
In English we will focus on reading comprehension skills, especially explaining in detail our own ideas about the texts we are reading and giving reasons for our opinions based on the text. In writing we will be completing skills work relating to sentences, grammar and punctuation.
Thank you for your continued support,
Miss Falconi, Mr Kendall and Mrs Walton
