What are we learning about in Term 6?
Could you survive Mount Everest?
Our overarching theme this term is all based around the topic of mountains and survival outdoors. The children will learn about the mountains around the world; the different mountain ranges; tallest mountains in the world; their climate and settlement, as well as their tourism and mountain climbing. Much of the learning that takes place in other subjects will be cross curricular and link to the topic wherever possible. We will also be thinking about transition to secondary school and focusing heavily on our end of term production too.
English and Maths
Our English lessons will be linked to our topic this term as always. We will be studying non fiction texts based on mountains and looking at survival in a harsh climate. In Maths this term, we will be completing statistics in more depth – revising all different types of chart and how to read them, as well as being able to problem solve with them an create our own. Each week we will also be continuing with daily arithmetic practice too
Science: Famous scientists
Humanities: Mountains Art: Mountain art
French: Le sport
RE: Kingdom of God
Homework will consist of a multiple choice grid with many different types of activities to choose from which are all based around our topic. The children will be responsible for completing a task each week and recording it in the home learning book. Photographs or any documents can be stuck into books and any models etc can be brought into school to be presented to the rest of the class if they wish.
For Maths home learning, the children have access to Times Tables Rock Stars and Prodigy, of which the login information can be found in their reading record. The children also have access to Spelling Shed to help them practise their spellings which are sent home weekly.
Remember to keep up with the reading at home in order to get through as many books as possible on the Accelerated Reader scheme and accrue the number of points needed for the term.
Home learning may also be supplemented from time to time with other activities to reinforce learning we do in class.
All homework will be awarded housepoints as well as housepoints given for reading quizzes. These will be added to each child's termly acrual in class to work towards a prize.
Any help and support given with home learning is greatly received. Thank you for your continued support.

12.11.21 - Shadufs
We were engineers and had to design and build a contraption (from natural materials outside) that we could use to fetch water from the River Nile.
15.09.21 - Aboriginal drama
In English, we retold an Aboriginal story using drama. We planned it as a group and then decided how we wanted to show it. Each group performed a different story.
17.9.21 - Maths outdoor learning
Today we revised negative numbers and how to use a number line to count across zero. We then had fun outside with a scavenger hunt – we worked with our partner to calculate with negative numbers in a real life context and the answers corresponded to clues for the passcode.
