What are we learning this half term?

 

In Y5&6 we have a history focus this half term as we delve into World War II.  We will be finding out where and when World war took place, and who was involved.  We will be finding out how the lives of everyday people were affected and how propaganda was utilised.

 

In Science we will be learning all about Earth & Space.  This will include how the Earth, and other planets, move relative to the Sun in our solar system; how the Moon moves relative to the Earth; and also how the Earth rotates giving us night and day.

 

In English we will be using the book 'Curiosity:  The Story of a Mars Rover ’ by Markus Motum as our inspiration.  This imaginative book, tells the story of the mission to Mars from the perspective of Curiosity itself.

 

In Maths, Y5 will be extending their understanding of place value up to 1,000,000 before moving on to addition & subtraction and then multiplication and division later in the half term.

In Y6 they will also begin with place value, looking at numbers up to 10,000,000 before they too move on to the four operations addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

 

Swimming this term will begin for Crich (Mr West) and Darley Dale (Mr Hunter).  We have 5 sessions this half term, beginning on Thursday the 21st of September.  A letter will be sent home with much more detail within the first full week back.  Any questions, please do ask.

Remember, when we swim, you wear uniform to school as usual and change for swimming. 

For Eyam, it will be PE in school:  so wear your PE kits on Thursdays Eyam!
