Term 2 Week 5 1.12.23

Lots of excitement on Friday as it snowed!! The children were so excited that we went out in it during PE.

In Literacy this week we have continued looking at poems by Karl Nova. We have explored rhythms and beats and wrote our own poems with a rhythm and beat which we could perform to.

In Maths, year 5 have been learning to add and subtract mixed number fractions by breaking down the whole number then the fraction to solve problems. Year 6 have been recapping on metric measures and consolidating our understanding of the most suitable measures to measure specific objects. We looked at converting measures, eg, km to miles and vice versa and we finished the week by looking at imperial measures.

Remember to use the link below to support year 6 learning in maths.

In History, we finalised our learning about early Islam and the influences on today's society.

In science this week we have continued to look at adolescence and puberty. We discussed personal hygiene and why it is important to keep our bodies clean and how we can do this. We created information to advertise how to do this.

In RE we have continued to explore racism and how religions encourage everyone to have equal opportunities regardless of their race, and that we should treat each other with respect and how we wish to be treated ourselves.


  • Mobile Phones – Mobile phones should be brought in by children who walk home alone, not by children who are collected by their adult.
  • The children should not be bringing their own fiddle toys to school. We have a selection in the classroom.
  • Reading books should be written in when the children have read either independently or with an adult.
  • The PE kit is their team colour T shirt and black/navy shorts NOT tracksuits.
