Hello and welcome to Class 10! I am really excited to begin this school year with the children in Class 10 and I know we are going to have an amazing year together. Below is some information on what we are covering this term that you might find useful.
Our main priority is children settling back into school and to help them understand and talk about their feelings. As a school, we will be looking at different aspects of well-being at the beginning of each week (in the form of a short story) to discuss as a class and to reflect on later in the week.
This term in maths, we are going to be focusing on Place Value with numbers up to 1 million (Year 5) and 10 million (Year 6) as well the Four Operations following the White Rose Hub scheme and embedding the learning further with plenty of opportunities to reason and problem solve. We will also be practising times tables regularly using Times Tables Rockstars and Superhero Times Tables.
Our fabulous novel this term is Kick by Mitch Johnson. It is about a young boy who lives in Indonesia (Jakarta) who has a real passion for football and a world of dreams. We will be looking at many devices that the author has used in the book and the children will be producing many different pieces of writing related to Kick, such as setting descriptions, diary entries and newspaper articles.
This year, we will be doing P.E. on Monday and we will be doing the P.E. sessions outside as possible. The children will be required to come to school in their P.E. kits (white plain t-shirt and dark shorts/joggers and trainers). In cases of bad weather, we will be doing P.E. in the hall. Children are not allowed to P.E. barefoot therefore we have asked children to have a pair of plimsolls in school for indoor P.E. We will also be doing the daily mile on Wednesday and Fridays so children will need to come into school with trainers on these days.
Our science topic this term is Living Things and their Habitats. We will be covering how plants and some animals reproduce as well as the life-cycles of different mammals, birds, amphibians and insects.
For Autumn 1, our topic is Asia. Within our topic, we will be looking at mountain ranges within the world and then more specifically around Asia in geography. In history, we will be exploring the significance and influence of the Shang Dynasty.
This term, we will be focusing on e-safety within our computing lessons and how whilst the internet can be a wonderful place, there are also some dangers that come with it. We will also be using the iPad to research within computing lessons and other lessons.
R.E. this term is all about Freedom and Justice. We will be exploring what the two terms mean and applying them to different religious teachings and beliefs.
