Welcome to Lion Class
We are Year 5 and Year 6!
Our teacher is Mrs Reeve and our TA is Mrs Benson.
This term our topic is Diversity with a focus on
We have looked at the lives of British artists and the countries where they were born. This helped us to understand the importance of diversity within Britain.
We also looked at how British artists contribute to charities within Britain and how they can use their fame to help people.
During the Autumn term we are looking at the topic of Earth, light and space.
We will be learning about the planets, their distances from the sun and their orbits.
We will also be finding out about how light travels.
Our class book is 'Wild Boy' by Rob Lloyd Jones. We have been really enjoying this and are looking forward to finding out what Wild Boy gets up to on his adventures!
A few reminders
PE days are on Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure that the children have their PE kit in school at all times (especially on these days). It is also essential that the PE kit is named.
Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and will be due in the following Wednesday. This will always consist of spellings to learn and will also have a focus of maths, reading, grammar or topic.
Reader of the week is awarded on a Friday. Please continue to support your children with their reading at home. It is also important for the children to continue to practise their times-tables whenever possible (even if they have achieved their white wristband).
