This half term we are focusing on Mexico. We will look at both the human and natural geography of the country. Ask your child what they have learnt. You may be surprised to discover that Mexico City is the largest Spanish-speaking city in the world-they certainly were.
Post SATs, we will start rehearsing for the year 6 production. It promises to be a lot of fun.
We will continue to focus on spellings. Please do encourage your child to use Spelling Shed. However, the best way to learn how to spell is by reading, so do ensure your child is reading everyday.
We are also practicing relaxing activities as we want the next few weeks to be as stress-free as possible.
Many children are doing extra groups to help them prepare for Sats. Do ask you child about what they are learning. If you have any questions about these groups, please do ask me.
In addition, many children tell me that they are working their way through the Sats revision books, so well done to them. It will be helpful.
We will carry on learning about electricity and electrical circuits after SATs. Practical work will include building simple circuits and carrying rudimentary fault-finding.
All children have log -ins for Spelling Shed and the Times Tables Rock Stars. Both are fun, excellent ways for the children to learn spelling and their times tables so please encourage them to play these games at home.
In maths, we are learning about statistics and geometry. The children are revising arithmatic and are working at an impressive level.
Things to Remember
Every day - Reading books
Wednesday - P.E. kit
The children have individual maths homework, aimed at their level of progression. Do ensure it is done and let us know if they are finding it too easy or difficult.
As ever, I am always keen to hear any news or concerns you may have; it's important to me that your child feels happy so please catch me at the beginning or end of the day if you need to speak to me.
