Aqua 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Aqua Class
We are a mixed Year 5/6 class who are taught by Mrs Lawton and Miss Bell, supported by Mrs Chadwick, Mrs Inskip and Mr Richards.
This is what we will be learning about in the Summer term:
Maths: This term we will cover the following
Fractions, decimals and percentages, properties of shape, position and direction, converting units, and volume.
English: We will develop our literacy skills across a range of genres and text types through the use of the following texts
The Hobbit by JRR Tolkein, Tales from Outer Suburbia by Shaun tan, The Convergence of the Twin by Thomas Hardy, Sensational! Poems inspired by the five sense chosen by Roger McGough, and, various collections of reports and persuasive texts.
Topic: The Maya
We will study the fascinating Maya in the vigorously researched topic. We will discover where and when the Maya built their magnificent civilisation as the children develop a range of skills across the curriculum. We will also investigate how they lived, their culture and their legacy. Then we will compare their lives to our own as we bring the learning together.
ICT: We Are Bloggers
During this unit, the children will work together to communicate and collaborate through sharing experiences and opinions through the use of a blog.
ICT: We Are Architects
They children will be creating a virtual space to investigate productivity.
Science: Living things and their habitats.
The children will look at a range of different animal and plant life cycles. Once they have gained a good insight in to the Scientific processes, they will learn more about the human life cycle.
RE: Enquiry and Islam
Our focus this term will be on the children’s own line of enquiry that they will select themselves and they will learn about the 5 pillars of Islam .
This term will see Aqua Class continue to build upon their knowledge of musical genres and experiences using instruments (including their voices).
This will usually be set on a Friday to be handed in the following Wednesday. Presentation expectations are the same as those for classwork. At times, homework may be set on the learning platform or small projects will be given that will last over a longer period of time. Please remember to access Times Tables Rockstars and Bug Club on a regular basis.
Outdoor games lessons, which include athletics, will be delivered on a Tuesday, depending upon weekly weather conditions. It is therefore important that in addition to school PE kit (navy shorts and light blue t-shirt), the children have pumps or trainers and a track suit in school AT ALL TIMES so that they are prepared for an outdoor lesson.
Swimming sessions will take place on a Thursday mornings for the Year 5 children. The children will need to wear the appropriate swim wear.
