Year 5 & 6 2016 - 2017

Mrs Bebbington

This half term our topic work will be based on the the theme  'Saltcape'. Over the coming weeks the children will learn about the history and geography of the Weaver valley surrounding Northwich, which will will culminate in a three day hands on project working with the Lion Salt works in Northwich and the Cheshire Wildlife Trust at the Anderton Nature Reserve. Our science work will be based around the theme of reversible changes, evaporation and condensation and later in the term, habitats. We will be doing some investigations with salt and some interesting art work too.

Our PE day continues to be Thursday. We will be working on modern dance this term. Swimming also begins this term for a series of 10 sessions. Please come and see us if you have any concerns regarding this.

As usual spellings and tables will come home on Thursdays. The children will be tested in school on Mondays. The children will also bring maths homework home on Thursdays, to be handed in on a Monday. Please encourage your child to read at home too as part of their home learning and just for sheer enjoyment and to keep practising their x tables!!!

Its going to be a busy half term for the whole class but especially for the year 6 children who  will be taking their key stage two tests in a few weeks time. Extra time will be dedicated to maths and English lessons to ensure the children are fully prepared for what they are expected to do. Please do come into school and see me if you have any worries/ questions about these tests.
