Welcome to Nu!
We are a year 5/6 class, consisting of 7 boys. Our class teacher is Mr Darkins, and we are very lucky to be supported by Miss Gomes and Miss Massey, they support us with our learning, and supports us with both academic and social intervention.
In Nu we work hard to develop a calm and positive environment where everybody feels safe, happy and can learn in a way that suits their needs.
Mr Darkins' email address is email@example.com. Please do not hesitate to contact him, should you have any questions.
In English this half term we will be learning to create formal persuasive texts, whilst in Maths we will be learning about Multiplicative and Geometric reasoning.
Within Geography, we will be exploring why people may choose to live in one place rather than another, whilst in History, we will be researching what it was like for children in a given period of history and present what we discover to an audience. We will be developing our speaking and listening in Spanish through short performances and small writing tasks. In RE we will learning about Buddhism and considering our own beliefs and how other people express their beliefs. Our PSHE topic will revolve around our rights and responsibilities, and how to care and support others as well as looking at our role in the world. We will learn to present data in Computing and looking at protecting ourselves online. In DT we will be learning about hygiene when cooking and planning and making healthy lunches.
On a Wednesday we will be taught by Chole, the dance and acrobatic teacher, and Mr Marsh.
Homework will be given out every Friday and although homework is not compulsory, there are fantastic benefits to learning at home. Homework is expected to be returned by the following Wednesday. All pupils are also expected to keep a record of how much time they spend reading at home. This can be a reading book from home or school, or even a magazine or newspaper! Please aim for your child to read at least 3 times a week.
