Eagle Class Y5 & Y6
Welcome to Class 5/6 Eagle's page
In Class Eagle, our team is made up of 27 children with Miss Arnold as our teacher and we're very lucky to have help from Mrs Breckon and Mrs Easton.
As our topic is all about the world, we will start the term by developing our descriptive vocabulary and techniques to immerse our readers in our settings and characters through our class book, ‘Trash’. We will also be focusing on poetry and non-fiction texts about different places, alongside developing new grammar terminology.
In maths, we will focus heavily this term on securing our written methods and mental calculation skills at the start of the year. We will also be exploring decimals, fraction and percentages in-depth. Our maths work will link into our topic when possible and we will complete regular maths challenges looking at solving maths problems in real-life contexts!
This year, our science topics will be Living Things and Their Habitats, Forces, Earth and Space, and Light.
Our work on physical and human geography will extend into exploring mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes from around the world. During DT, we’ll look at recipes from different locations and in computing, we’re looking out our digital footprint. Jumping back in time to look at the Mayan civilization will be a great opportunity to develop our history knowledge too! Within PE, we’re improving our skills linked to basketball. We will also develop our football techniques and look at team work together.
