Year 5/6

Welcome to
Year 5 and Year 6
 
Our topic this half term is:
 
To Infinity and Beyond
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
                            Newspapers Come to Life!
 
On Thursday 9th November, Year 6 had a visit from Lewis - a reporter from the Mid Devon Gazette.  He talked to us about how he writes newspaper stories, gave us some tips about how to improve our reports and explained how we can get our newspaper reports published in the paper!

This half term we will begin by developing our Science skills; we will develop our understanding of Earth and Space, Light and Forces.  Through experiments, we will develop our investigative and recording skills.

We will then investigate Electricity and use our learning to help us to create electrical Christmas decorations.

If you have any skills or knowledge that could enhance our learning, please speak to a member of the Year 5 / 6 team.  We would love you to be involved!

                Grow, Cook, Share!
 
Year 5 and Year 6 have been developing chopping, kneading and cooking skills by making bread and soup in Grow, Cook, Share.
 
                      Marvellous Multiplication
 
We are using a range of resources to help us build a visual image to support our Maths learning.  We used place value counters to support our use of the multiplication strategies.
