Neptune Class Year 5 & 6

Welcome to Neptune Class.
 
We are a combined Year 5 and Year 6 class.
  
Our Topic this Spring term, 2024, is 'Geography of the UK'. We will be designing and building bridges across a span, we will investigate the way major cities have changed over time, we will use our map skills to investigate the use of 'scales' and 'grid references'. We will will be writing short narratives and poems based on folktales from around the UK.
 
Please take a look at our 'Geography of the UK' document below for further information on this terms learning. 

Please continue to support your child in revising their times tables daily, Key stage 2 maths requires a secure knowledge of tables before future skills can be developed. Also RM maths is an invaluable learning source to support fluency, only 15 minutes a day will help to consolidate their learning.

 

Handy to Know:                                                                                                    Homework: Set on Mondays due in on the following Monday, this includes My Maths and an English activity set on Google classroom.  If your child cannot access their homework at home, they can choose a lunchtime during the week to complete it at school.
