Teacher : Mrs Dickson
Dear Parents/ Guardians,
Welcome to year 5/6. My name is Mrs Dickson and I am an experienced UKS2 teacher. This year I will be working alongside Miss Roberts, the TA in the class.
Our topic for the autumn term will be Right or Wrong. During the topic, we will be; comparing Texas (USA) and Wales, the habitats of animals and how animals have adapted, race and influential people, what makes us healthy and crime and punishment. Our focus book for the term will be ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar. In line with the new curriculum for Wales, all our topics this year will be child led, with the hope that children become more independent and tailor their learning to their own interests.
During the spring term we will investigating ww2 through the book ‘The boy in the striped pyjamas’. The children will find out what live was like during that time and how it has affected how we currently live our lives. In the summer term our topic will be ‘Survival’ during this we will be looking at how humans can survive in extreme environments.
The children will do PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure children have the correct kit with them on this day. We will also be doing the daily mile as often as we can, for this reason, it would be handy if the children could have their trainers in school with them each day.
Each child in the class has now been given a new reading book and record, please encourage your child to read each day and bring their book in with them every day – practise makes perfect! Alongside this, your child will also have times tables to practise as part of our current challenge. I do not set homework but if you would like your child to do some work at home please do one of these two things.
Towards the end of the autumn term, the children will be going swimming for a 2 week block each morning. The children will need their swimming kit with them every day for this period. I will let you know of the dates once they have been confirmed.
If you have any queries or questions please feel free to pop in.
