English

We are looking forward to sharing more of our favourite texts this term. Year 5 will be reading the non-fiction text ‘Curiosity’ while Year 6 study for the SATS to start the Summer Term. This information book explains the intricacies of the famous Mars Rover. We will also read the classic narrative poem: ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes.  

The main narrative text this term will be’ Stormbreaker’. ‘Stormbreaker’ is the first book in the bestselling Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. A fourteen-year-old, Alex, is recruited into MI6. Armed with secret gadgets, he is sent to investigate Herod Sayle, a man who is offering state-of-the-art Stormbreaker computers to every school in the country. However, the teenage spy soon finds himself in mortal danger…

Reading

In KS2 we follow a programme called Reciprocal Reading. This is an activity that takes the form of a dialogue between teachers and children as they read as a whole class or in groups. A reciprocal approach provides our children with four specific reading strategies: Questioning, Clarifying, Summarizing, and Predicting. When you listen to your children read, we encourage you to discuss the story lines, plot, characters and the meaning of unfamiliar words.

Reading Homework: we expect daily reading at home. We ask that at least three reads are from the teacher directed ‘book banded’ book and two are from an online reading program (Reading Plus or Reading Eggspress). ALL reads should be recorded in the yellow reading record books to allow staff to keep a record and celebrate success at the end of each term. 

Maths

At Cinnamon Brow we use the Power Maths scheme as the main part of our teaching and learning plan. 

In upper KS2 we are deepening our mathematical knowledge we have learnt during our time at primary school. 

This term we will be working on:

  • Measure, area and perimeter
  • Position and Direction
  • Shape
  • Fractions
  • Percentages
  • Decimals
  • Ratio and Proportion (Y6)
  • Problem solving and reasoning
  • Algebra and pattern (Y6)
  • Over-learning and recapping of the four operations
  • Multiplication and division facts x2 – x12 to be learnt at home

Maths Homework:  In UKS2 we ask that you continue to support us with multiplication knowledge by using TTRockstars on a daily basis. We recommend 10 minutes each day. 

Science

Pupils will be taught to:

  • describe the movement of the Earth and other planets relative to the sun in the solar system
  • describe the movement of the moon relative to the Earth
  • describe the sun, Earth and moon as approximately spherical bodies
  • use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky

Properties and Materials

Pupils will be taught to:

  • compare and group together everyday materials based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, including their hardness, solubility, transparency, conductivity (electrical and thermal), and response to magnets
  • understand that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution
  • use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating
  • give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic
  • demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes

History

Crime and Punishment

 Pupils will continue to develop a chronologically secure knowledge and understanding of British history. They will regularly address and devise historically valid questions about change, cause, similarity and difference, and significance of the events during the times of change in Britain. Learning will include aspect of social history, with a key focus on crime and punishment from the Anglo-Saxons to the present time.

 

It is easy to see why the topic of Crime and Punishment is so popular. This unit of work is a good topic for examining the idea of change as well as providing many interesting sources for the children to investigate.

Geography

After locating the Caribbean and its main islands, children will explore the physical geography of the region, finding out about the diverse landforms to be found across the islands. They will also find out about the Caribbean climate, and the devastating consequences the hurricane season can have. Children will also explore the human geography of the region and explore how the colonial history of the region has affected the culture of the Caribbean today. Finally, children will look at the Caribbean as a tourist destination.

How you can support us.

Reading - 

Reading with your child is the most important thing you can do to support their learning at home. 

Please try and read every day and remember to record on Go Read, the online reading record.  Three reads are needed from the teacher directed book-banded reading book. We suggest that in UKS2, children should be reading approximately 10 pages per night to increase reading stamina. Two reads should be from the online reading platforms. 

Your child's Reading Plus and Eggs passwords are in their reading diary.  If you have any trouble signing in online, please ask one of us.

We are all taking part in the Round the World Reading Challenge which allows your child to 'travel' to new world destinations each time they read at home at 5 times a week for ten weeks.  Don't forget, Reading Plus/Eggs will count as a read and make sure you record these! Let's get reading!

Maths - please help your child learn Times Tables. TTRockstars is a brilliant app to help with this.  Additionally, children need to complete online maths learning using Doodle maths and Numbots for at least 10 minutes each day.

Please feel free to contact and talk to us in regards to any of your children’s needs.

PE

Cape Town’s PE day is Monday

New Dehli and Canberra’s PE day is Wednesday. 

Children must come to school dressed in school PE kit on their PE day. Black joggers, black jumper or school jumper and a white T Shirt or school polo top. 

Key Information

Please ensure that you bring your child's school reading book bag back into school daily as this will be used to bring home important letters and it will keep our reading books safe.

Your child should bring in a water bottle that is sent home to be thoroughly cleaned each evening.

 

 

Homework

Reading

In UKS2 we expect 5 reads per week to be completed. Three of these can be from the teacher directed book and two from the online reading. These all need to be recorded on Go Read, the online reading platform. Login details will be shared with all families. 

Spellings

Spellings are very important in UKS2. A spelling list will be sent home each week. This will be words that have the spelling patterns we are learning, plus a short list of statutory words. We suggest the children write out the spellings in a list, in sentences, in rainbow colours and in pictures. These different methods, support the child to remember the patterns and spellings. We also suggest pointing out the spelling patterns in daily reading.
