This term we will be taking a journey through our rainforests to discover where they are, what they are like and who lives in them.
Where are rainforests located and what are their main features?
Can we create a class rainforest?
Why is the Amazon so important to the South American rainforest?
Why are rainforests often in the news?
Can you make some large leaf art?
What can you find out about the endangered species that live in the rainforests?
In numeracy this half term we will be looking at nets (a 3D shape folded out into their flat shape). We will also be working on percentages and how they are linked to fractions and decimals.
Keep working on strategies to help you problem solve.
Don't forget to keep revising the mental maths strategies we've already worked upon for our weekly numeracy tests.
Practice your times tables in readiness for our weekly challenges.
Literacy this term will focus upon poetry. As a class we will be looking closely at the Dr Seuss' poem The Lorax.
In S.P.A.G we will be looking at modal verbs; what are they and how are they used in our writing.
Pssst Don't forget you will still need to use all of your other SPAG learnings to work your way up to the top step of the literacy success ladder.
Spelling is important too and the 5/6 spelling list can be found at the foot of this webpage.

We will be reporting our weekly reading score here so you can see just how well (or not) we are doing as a class at completing our 4 weekly reads challenge.
A magical moment is a special event that you experienced in your life. It could be funny, thoughtful, simple or heroic, but what matters is that special feeling you experienced.
There can only be one moment to talk about this week and it is the performance of our very own JakeZ
Fantastic rapping of the poem you and Louise created in our literacy lesson.

Millie your Roman Numeral numeracy presentation was fantastic .
Louise you showed a great depth of understanding in your RE work.

We will be learning our brass instruments on Monday afternoons.
PE will take place on Monday afternoons and Thursday Mornings - It is beginning to get colder so I recommend that you have trousers and shorts in your PE kit. Earrings must be removed prior to lessons. Staff can not remove earrings but can offer tape to cover the earring. Children who are not able to remove their own earrings or have tape applied will not be allowed to participate in PE lessons. *
