Autumn half term


 Welcome back everyone! This is the very first half term we have had together as a whole mixed Year 5/6 team and so we have put together a plan to help us all even though we are working in our separate bubbles!


Our first topic of the year is 'Power In Me' where we will spend time exploring all the different things that make us the people we are. In Literacy we are beginning by looking at the book 'Can I build Another Me?' and creating a set of instructions to help a robot to survive a day in the life of a St John's child! In Science we will be looking at healthy living, focusing on the ways in which our circulatory system works to help us to exercise and the right lifestyle choices we need to make to look after our bodies. This also leads us into a DT project where we will be designing a healthy snack with hidden vegetables. In Computing, we will be looking at E-safety and how to take care of our virtual selves and our friends and families.


In Maths we will be covering all the basics to get us back into the swing of things - place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.


In RE our focus will be on exploring the idea of Jesus as 'the Light of the World' and what this means as a Christian.


PE will be on Fridays this year, so we are asking for children to come in their sports clothes every Friday. We are also completing the daily mile so children can also bring in their trainers to change into each day.


It's great to be back and we can't wait to get the year off to a flying start!
