The Red Kite class is now taught by Mr Aspinall and our wonderful teaching assistant: Mrs Livesey.
We are looking forward to seeing everyone back at school ready for our second term. This term the topic for Year 5 and 6 is the supernatural. We will be spending a lot of time focusing on our writing and writing some spooky stories to go with the chilling scenes from our play: The Tempest, which will be performed at the Cornerstone Theatre.
In maths, we will be finishing off our addition and subtraction work and moving onto multiplication and division. The children will learn the short column method of multiplication and short division (bus stop method) as well as learning about multiples, factors, prime numbers, square numbers and how to use these to solve practical problems.
Much of our topic time will be focused on our play, but we will also be: learning about British history, doing experiments in Science and focusing more on our SPaG (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) work.

Swim caps can be bought from the school for the cost price of £1.50.
Homework will consist of spellings, the reading record challenge and MyMaths. These will be set every Friday and expected to be completed by the following Friday.
Please feel free to pop in either in the morning or after school if you have any concerns. We will be more than happy to help in any way possible.
