SUMMER 2

We are writers...

In our writing lessons, we will be driven by the novel; The Last Wild by Piers Torday. We will be using this to write some interesting explanation texts about a new mechanism and some persuasive letters from the main character to his parents! This half term in writing we are covering cohesive devices, relative clauses and using colons.

In our shared reading lessons, we will be developing our skills by reading and understanding texts across a range of genres - both fiction and non-fiction based around our novel and geography topic – mountains. We will continue to secure our retrieval, summarising, inference and sequencing knowledge!

Please make sure you are still reading 3 or more times a week!

We are mathematicians...

In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about decimals including multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000, negative numbers, converting units and volume. This half term is also a great chance for us to recap and revise all of our maths learning from Year 5!

## Summer 1 - Groovy Greeks!

We are writers

In our writing lessons, we will be driven by the novel; Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief.

We will be delving into Greek myths to help further our understanding of different writing genres, writing a diary entry inspired by Theseus and the Minotaur and then our own Greek Myth!

In our shared reading lessons, we will be developing our skills by reading and understanding texts across a range of genres - both fiction and non-fiction. Our main focus will be on understanding vocabulary and improving our inference and retrieval skills.

We are mathematicians

In our maths lessons this half-term, we will be learning about multiples, factors and prime numbers.

This will increase our super number knowledge and allow us to understand times tables, multiplication and division even deeper.

We are Historians, Artists, Scientists and athletes

In History are are diving into the world of the Ancient Greeks! We will be learning how to study artefacts, how they impacted our world today and what life was like for them.

Our Art lessons will be all about sculpture. As well as looking at different forms of sculpture and practicing our sculpture skills, we will be making our own Greek sculpture using recycled materials!

In science, our topic is working scientifically, where we will be practicing and consolidating all the skills needed to become a brilliant scientist.

Our PE lessons will be based on striking and fielding games - PE is Mondays and Thursdays this half term :)
