Good luck to Y6 with KS2 SATs                 Welcome to Cummersdale Primary School                

Summer Term 2017

     This term, year 5 and 6 will be learning about living things and their habitats in their topic work. They will describe how living things are classified into broad groups according to common characteristics, based on similarities and differences. They will carry out observations and discuss why plants and animals are put into one group rather than another.They will carry out research into plants and animals from a broad range of habitats and look at the work of Scientists involved in developing the system of classification.

     In English the children will continue to read a wide range of texts including, poetry, fiction , plays and non- fiction.  Its is still very important that your child continues to read at home both independently and to another adult.  This improves their fluency accuracy and confidence when reading aloud to an audience and most importantly develops a love of reading. The writing activities will be linked to the text being studied in class .  They will write for a range of purposes including narrative, poetry and information writing.  They will also be taught spellings following the  Read Write Inc Spelling progamme and will continue to develop an understanding of grammar.

     In mathematics the chidren will continue to develop their understanding of number and place value, including fractions, decimals and percentages. They will also learn about position and direction in geometry and the properties of shapes.

     In Computing the children will be taught how to use technology safely and they have recently had a visit from the NSPCC which made children aware of using technology safely.  They will also use technology to carry out research , use word and make power points.They will also develop sequences using Scratch.  Their art work will be linked to areas of learning across the curriculum and the children will look at paintings from famous artists.
