History

Our main topic this half term: The Vikings

This half term, we will be learning about the Vikings. We will learn about where they came from, their invasion of Britain and the legacy they left on the country. We will also look at some aspects of daily life for the Vikings.

Please find the knowledge organiser for this topic below:

Science

In science, our topic will be: Electricity. Throughout this topic we will be looking at constructing more complex circuits and how to include different components such as buzzers and sirens. We will look at the effects of putting too many components into a circuit or not including enough energy. We will also be working to link this with our DT topic of motors later in the year.

Our class book for this half-term: Clockwork By Philip Pullman

 

Important information.

Please sign your child’s reading record each evening. Regular reading helps children to develop their fluency and comprehension skills, and  in turn helps them to access the rest of the curriculum. Children may change reading books at school when they have finished them.

Children receive spellings on Fridays. The word lists are taken from the Read Write Inc. Spelling units which the children have completed that week, so you will notice common spelling patterns or rules. Some weeks they may be taken from the Year 5/6 statutory spelling list. A copy of this can be found below. These spellings should be practised daily.
