Term 6

Welcome back after the recent May half term. Wasn’t it great to see the sunshine for a few days! Let’s hope a few more are booked for the summer holiday at the end of this term.

This term brings lots of exciting learning opportunities. In the second week of this term we are very privileged to have Henry 8th joining us for a day. It is always such an enjoyable day filled with laughter, and at times disgust, as the children get taken back to the Tudor Dynasty. A huge thankyou in advance for all the hard work that goes into finding, making or borrowing costumes for the day. We hope to get some pictures up on the website for you to view soon after the day.

In science we are dipping into the world of plants, understanding all vocabulary relating to parts of the plants and how seeds are produced. In ICT we are using a program called scratch and using this to design our own game. In DT we are studying motion through the use of CAMS and designing our own CAM toys. Music continues to develop our skills of performance through singing and playing the glockenspiel. Literacy this term revisits traditional stories and fables, considering how they can be adapted. We also look further at improving sentence structure and vocabulary choices. Numeracy focuses heavily on shape and space, ratio, proportion and percentages. PE is swimming on a Wednesday and rounders on a Thursday along with a touch of athletics. We are looking forward to seeing lots of parents at both the gala and sports day. Please do check the calendar for important dates such as this.

In French it’s full steam ahead as we gear up for the Spelling bee and Languages festival at Norton Hill on 2nd July.  We will be out of school all day on that date, but it doesn’t make any difference to normal start and finish times here at Paulton. Norton Hill kindly send a coach to pick us up after registration and we are back in school before 3pm. All children will, however, need a packed lunch!  We will perform a song with live accompaniment for the first time (many thanks to Mr Hawkings), it’s called ‘J’adore jouer au football’.

We will also be reviewing our café dialogues and practising our French numbers 1 – 50 with some mental maths. Bon courage!

 

 

 

Term 5 and 6 TARGETS

* ** ***
Literacy I can make varied and effective word choices that create a desired effect.  I can join clauses through the use of connectives such as:  however, meanwhile, although, despite I can use a semi colon to link clauses.
Numeracy I can find missing numbers in a number line or number sentence. I can recognise equivalent fractions, decimals and percentages. I can securely use a written method for all 4 number operations (÷×+-)
Reading I can gain meaning from text I read and explain this in my own words. I can work out how a character is feeling based upon their actions and words in the text I can make comments that show I understand what the author is aiming to achieve eg The way she describes him as ‘ratlike’ makes you think he’s disgusting.
