Autumn Term - September 2021

We hope you have all had an exciting and adventurous summer holiday and are ready to return to school.

I have been busy during the holidays, preparing a full, fun packed curriculum - we will be reviewing what we know, learning lots of new facts and skills, and return to having breaks and assemblies together again as a whole school.

Topic: History/Science: Famous Engineers - from Isambard Kingdom Brunel to Sir James Dyson

Maths: Place value, negative numbers, Roman numerals to start the term

Writing: The Present by Jacob Frey- story writing based on a short animated film

Science: Properties and Changes of Materials - this will link to engineering investigations

Religious and World Views: Islam - How can a mosque help us understand the Muslim faith?


Read, read, read: the more you do, the more you learn.

Please read regularly at home : come and ask if you need suggestions for a good read.

Our class read this term is an adventure story; The Orphans of the Tide by Struan Murray


The Night Bus Hero by Onjali Q Rauf will be our whole class guided reading text.

P.E. Year 6 on Monday and Tuesday afternoons: please ensure your child has their kit in school on these days.

Year 5 will go swimming on Tuesday mornings at Alderman Peel High School and have a class PE session on Tuesday afternoon. The first swimming session will be on Tuesday 7th September: remember your kit.


We will also do art, computing and spelling to name a few of our other lessons: it's a busy term ahead!

There will be lots of information and new routines to establish on Monday as the new term begins, but do not worry, we will work together and be the fabulous Golden Eagle class.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
