Year 5 and 6 Summer term 2022 Our topic for this term will be ‘Wales and Welshness’. The learners’ voice and ideas are at the heart of the learning. We encourage you to discuss the class activities with your child and to bring in any relevant pictures, books, artefacts and ideas for guest speakers. Below are the themes we will study within the different subjects: Languages, Literacy and Communication: We study Welsh and English in alternating blocks of a fortnight each. Our literacy work will go hand in hand with our topic work as well as our class novel ‘Twm bach ar y Mimosa’ by Sian Lewis. The writing genres for this term are: personal letter, diary writing, story, poem, a review and an advert. Read Write Inc: The children will have a 20 minute Read Write Inc session daily to teach English spelling patterns. The children will change their books once they have finished reading the previous one. In addition, the class teacher will be reading with the children, therefore it’s important that they bring their reading bag every day. It is very important that you read with your child every day and discuss or ask questions about what they have read. Reading records will be sent home, therefore when you read with your child, could you please note down in the reading record. You are welcome to read other books, magazines, newspaper with them, as I strongly believe that a child should enjoy what they are reading. Mathematics and Numeracy: The main aspects we will be studying this term are: movement, expression and formulae (Year.6), area, volume, angle, position, capacity, probability, collect and record data. In addition to this, we will be practicing mental maths and developing our ability to reason. Science and Technology: This terms unit of work will be based on forces, including friction and force meters. In addition, we will be having a coding workshop, planning, designing and building a Welsh bridge and also planting and gardening in our garden. Humanities: This term we will be learning about the history of the Mimosa voyage and the Welsh settlement in Patagonia, some of Welsh heroes, the importance of the Bible including the story of Mari Jones and the Bishop William Morgan. In addition, map work identifying and labelling the main geographical features of Wales, e.g. rivers, mountains, towns. Health and Wellbeing: Every Monday we will be doing physical activity or sports. The children will need to bring their PE clothes in a bag which includes: a white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. A pair of socks is advised if a child wears skirt and tights. They will need to leave their kit in school for the half term. We will hold daily 'PausePoints’ sessions to develop learners' wellbeing, as well as completing the daily mile, twice a week. This term's PSE lessons will focus on sex and relationships education. Expressive Arts: We will be emulating the work of the artist Rhiannon Roberts, learning a folk dance and listening and evaluating Welsh music. Homework: The children will receive Mathematics homework every two weeks and in the other weeks the children will be asked to complete a themed task. Homework will be set on a Friday and is due in on the following Friday.
