Autumn Term Themed Learning - 'Out of This World'
We are the oldest class in the school (years 5 and 6). Our teachers are Miss Buckle and Mrs Thompson, our Higher Level Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Harding.
This half term our themed learning is 'Out of This World' which is mainly science based. We are going to be finding out about the Solar System. In October we will be visiting the National Space Centre in Leicester to help us with our themed learning.
In English we are reading The War of the Worlds based on the novel by H.G. Wells. We will be exploring this science fiction text and then producing lots of writing related to the book.
In Maths, we are following the Maths Mastery approach and are learning about place value and number.
