Welcome to Year 5/6 Topaz Class
My name is Mr Wilson and I am the teacher in Year 5/6 Topaz Class.
We are also very lucky to have Miss Emery working alongside us in class as well.
This page will include information about our class and also about our current learning.
This half term, our art topic is 'Style in Art', in geography we will be learning about 'Spatial Sense', our history topic is 'Early British Empire' and we will be learning about the 'Human Body (circulatory system)' in science.
We will be using 'The Hobbit' by J.R.R. Tolkien as our English stimulus when writing some fantasy stories.
This term, our PE sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Please make sure children have their indoor and outdoor PE kits on these days.
Reading - If pupils read 3 times a week (and this is signed in their reading records), they will be able to move their rocket through space, and will be one step closer to Earth, where they can receive a certificate and prize!
Spellings - Every Monday, pupils are sent home with statutory spellings to practise for the spelling tests the following Monday. Children will receive a certificate for being a star speller and getting full marks in their weekly spelling test.
Times Tables - To enable children to progress within Maths, it is essential that they can recall their times tables up to 12 x 12. Weekly practice, using our times tables mats, will help children to improve their recall. The websites below have a range of games that can support children with this:
Don't forget to play on Times Tables Rockstars!
Below, you can find the homework menu for Autumn one. Children complete their work and upload it on Seesaw.
