Neptune -Year 5 & 6


Welcome back to Neptune Class! We are all very excited about our learning for the final term of the year.

In English, we will be writing persuasive letters and nonfiction information reports. We will be learning when to use colons and semicolons in our writing.

In maths, Year 5 will be moving onto geometry and shape, learning about area and perimeter of shapes. They will also be learning about shapes, both 2D and 3D, before  moving onto geometry. Year 6 will continue with their data and statistics lessons before also moving on to shape.

Our first RE unit of this term is “Serving” and we will be learning about energy transformation and the Holy Spirit.

In science, we will be learning about the properties of materials and whether reactions are reversible or irreversible.

In history, we will be looking at crime and punishment throughout time. From medieval times to now, with everything in between! We will be visiting the Tower of London to see where some of these punishments took place! Following this, we will be learning about democracy in the UK. The children will take part in intensive learning sessions, comprising maths, English, history, and PSHE lessons.

Helpful Reminders: 

Your child will be having PE lessons on a Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure they come to school with the correct PE kit, which has been clearly labelled, in a PE bag on these days.

Your child will have received their reading record: this needs to be completed, and signed, every day after your child has read. All children need to read for at least 20 minutes every day. Reading records must be brought to school every morning where they will be checked by a member of the Neptune team.

Homework will be set every Thursday and is due the following Wednesday. This will be set on Google Classroom and will comprise a maths, spelling and philosophical activity.
