Neptune Class Year 5/6

Welcome to Neptune Class.
Our teacher is Mrs Halpin supported by Mrs Ward.
We are a combined Year 5 and Year 6 class.

In English this term we will be looking at narrative writing, diary entries, informal & formal letters, persuasive writing and journalistic writing skills. Spellings, handwriting and presentation will be a constant focus across all subjects.  

In Maths this term we will focus on number, place value, addition/subtraction, multiplication/division and fractions. We will apply our mathematical skills within fluency, reasoning and problem solving activities. In the afternoons our Mini maths sessions will focus on essential knowledge, including times tables, measurement, formal written methods and mental maths skills. Please support your child in revising their times tables daily, Key stage 2 maths requires a secure knowledge of tables, the basis of all KS2 maths.

Science for this first half term focuses on Light before moving on to electricity.

DT will refelect our Topic this term, The Battle of Britain, we will be re-creating a bomb shelter.

Our Topic for this Term is the Battle of Britain and we hope to have a visit to The Imperial War Museum at Duxford.
