Class 10 and 11

Class 10 and 11 are mixed Year groups consisting of Year 5 and Year 6 children.                 This year is an exciting and challenging year for the Year 5 children.  The children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning.  These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons which provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the challenges of Year 6 and our Year 6 children for High School.

In Maths, the children will continue to develop their skills across the different areas in the curriculum.  They are continuously challenged throughout these topics in order to secure and further their understanding. 

In English, the children will be expected to write in a range of genres, which include diaries, letters, newspapers, arguments and narratives to name but a few.  Their writing throughout the year will be inspired by both the novel we are reading as well as the topic that we are studying that term. 

We have lots of exciting topics planned this year.  At the beginning of the year, our History focus will be World War Two, in which our educational visit to Tatton Hall Farm will help to bring this period alive with artefacts to study and being immersed in the period.  After that, we will study Ancient Greece, with a visitor who will explore Greek warfare with us.  Finally, in the summer term, our focus is Rainforests. We will be looking at both historical and geographical aspects, with a visit to Blackpool Zoo.

Our Science topics throughout the year will provide some thought provoking investigations and experiments.  These will enable children to question and wonder about how and why scientific processes occur.  Year 5 will be beginning the year finding out about forces and Earth and Space, whilst Year 6 will be taught by Mrs Fox.

Thank you for your continuous support.
