Welcome to the EAGLES' page!
WELCOME TO TERM 2!
The children have already begun using their written method for long division and I have been so impressed with their determination and success so far.
We have also started our study of non-chronological report writing which has also linked with our continuing study of climate change in geography.
In science we have started our study of 'electro-magnetic radiation'. If this sounds scary or dangerous our year 6s will put your fears to rest when they tell you that this is a scientific name for LIGHT! We have started to learn about how light behaves and how we can work scientifically to investigate it.
Below I have uploaded our weekly timetable alongside an overview of what we will be studying. I have also put up the year 5 / 6 spellings (which I am sure you are very familiar with by now).
A few reminders:
Reading: you will still be expected to read 5 times a week and to have an adult sign your reading off.
P.E. kits: please come into to school wearing an outdoor PE kit on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please bring spare shoes and socks for going out onto the field.
Homework: we will be doing things a little differently with our homework in September. Homework will be given out in dedicated workbooks on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and childen will have a week to complete each piece.
Well done Eagles!
