Termly Learning Focus

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

What a term 5 we have had! Firstly, we would like to say a huge well done to all of the Year 6 children. They were amazing throughout the SATs and we are extremely proud of them all. The residential came as a perfectly timed reward; the children had some incredible experiences and really impressed us with their bravery on some very tricky challenges. Mrs Duncan had a brilliant time with the children who stayed at school, going out and about, baking, bowling, programming, den building and much more. We loved every minute. Finally, we finished it with a great jubilee celebration. Such a great end to a term of hard work.

In our final term, we will be focusing getting ready for Year 7. In literacy, we will be extending our knowledge of writing across a range of genres and will be learning to write and perform a speech. We will be looking at the work of Greta Thunberg as our inspiration. In maths, we will be applying our knowledge and skills to problem solving activities. We will be learning about the town’s history of shoe making and will be practising our performance skills in music ready to share with you at the end of the term.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:

Science

RE

Music

Computing

PE

Electricity

 

Courage and Encouragement

 

 Performance

Programming- variables and sensing

Outdoor: Athletics

Indoor: Bootcamp

How can you help with your child’s learning in school and at home?

  • Listen to your child read aloud at home. Can you ask them some questions such as: How was the character feeling? How do you know? Where is the story set? How do you know? What were the key events?
  • Research about the town’s history of shoe making. What can you find out together which you didn’t know before?
  • Hold a discussion with your child about climate change. Can you build on each others’ ideas or respectfully challenge each others’ perspectives to support the development of our debating skills.

To share in our learning, please follow us on twitter to keep up to date @CroylandKS2

Thank you for your continued support.
