Mrs Symons, Madame Price and Mrs Halfpenny will be working with and helping the children in Amethyst with their learning this term.
For the first few weeks of the Summer Term we will be focusing on preparation for the SATs test which take place during the week beginning the 14th May. The children will be completing work to address any gaps in their learning and revise work taught during Years 5 and 6.
Following the SATs, in English, we will begin by looking at the layout and features of instructions and will be writing leaflets focusing on formal and informal language.
In Maths, we will be focusing on applying mathematical skills to complete cross curricular challenges including work on Mosaics linked to our topic.
In Science, we will continue with our work on Inheritance and Adaptation and will be looking at the similarities and differences of humans and animals.
The children will be studying the City Of Bath and taking a look at how the Romans influenced life today!
We will also be looking forward to the Key Stage Two production in the second half of the Summer Term- it is set to be a spectacular event!
Children are expected to read at home regularly with an adult and to have a book ‘on the go’ that travels to school and home again every day. It is an essential element of a child's development and has a positive impact on your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum.
PE kit is needed in school every day but our specific PE days are Thursday and Friday in Summer 5 and will be on a Monday and a Wednesday in Summer 6. The requirement for kit is a white t-shirt (not polo shirt), black shorts and trainers.
Children are expected to read daily and practice times tables and given spellings.
Before the SATs, the children need to continue to complete their Maths, reading and grammar revision books each week- returning them to school on a Wednesday.
I have been very impressed with the commitment to complete these as we move towards the tests in May- Well done everyone!
Thank you for your continued support
