High School Transition
Whitworth High School have provided this video to help you prepare for the transition from primary to secondary school. Keep checking this page as we will be adding more information about the transition to high school, which will hopefully be useful for you all, regardless of which school you will be attending.
World Book Day
In class, we shared the sashes that we all made about our favourite book(s) or our favourite author(s). We also participated in an author masterclass by Greg James and Chris Smith. which looked at their book series 'Kid Normal' and was focused around the theme of heroes. After reading extracts of their books and exploring the main character, Murph, we went on to create our own superheroes with unique powers, including making our own masks. We then planned a story based around them and created graphic novels.
Ancient Greece Day
On Friday 28th February, we had a very special Ancient Greece day. We enjoyed experiencing what life would have been like for someone living in Sparta and someone living in Athens. We also had a session where we got to try a range of different Greek foods. To end the day, we joined together and performed a play of Hades and Persephone followed by a final vote of which city we would prefer to live in - Athens won by far! It was a fantastic day, enjoyed by all!
Have a look at the many photos from the day below!
On this page you can have a look at what we are doing this term, check out important diary dates and find out important information.
This half term we will be learning:
RE - We will be continuing the focus of 'Life is like a journey', but this half term we will focus on Christianity, with a key question of ' Why do Christians believe Good Friday, is 'good?.
Computing - we will be finishing our work on spreadsheets and then applying our computing knowledge to Blogging.
Important dates for your diary:
Children MUST have their PE kits in school at all times as there will be times when we have to swap PE slots for various reasons.
Please have everything labelled so items can easily be identified if lost.
Homework and spellings:
Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings.
Learning logs have been given for this half term. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. The final deadline for these to be handed in is the last Wednesday of the half term.
Spellings will be sent home every week. They need to be learnt for the spelling tests. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts.
It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.
Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day.We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read.
Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home. At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.
Rising Stars Online Comprehension
