Welcome to Nu!
We are a year 5/6 class, consisting of 7 boys. Our class teacher is Miss O'Sullivan, and we are very lucky to be supported by Mr O'Neill and Mr Bishop, who both support us with our learning, and support us with both academic and social intervention.
Miss O'Sullivan's email address is email@example.com. Please do not hesitate to contact her, should you have any questions.
Our core value this half term is Gratitude, so we will be focusing on what it means to be grateful, and exploring ways in which we can show gratitude to ourselves, others, and the world we live in.
In Literacy, we will be focusing on Novels and Legends, whilst in Maths we will be focusing on larger numbers and how they are made, thinking about number patterns and relationships as well as fractions.
Within Geography, we will be exploring other parts of the world, whilst taking into account time differences and using measurements, whilst in History, we will be exploring timelines and thinking about how lifestyles have changed over time, and how this may have impacted on religion. We will focus on using the Spanish language to share our current interests, and compare these to those of our ancestors. Within Science, we will be learning about Space and the different planets, and will use our Art and music skills to represent our own understanding through our own compositions. We will also think about creating our own virtual worlds through our use of ICT.
Homework will be given out every Friday and 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.
In October, we will be visiting Space Port, Wallasey, linking to our current Science learning. You can find out more about our upcoming trip on the Space Port website; http://www.spaceport.org.uk/Pages/default.aspx
In P.E this term, we are taking part in gymnastics with Mr. Darkins. We will be working on lots of different skills like balancing and strength.
