Welcome! We are the Y5 and Y6 pupils

This term our topic will be “I-Spy” where we will be looking closely at the history of our village and the nearby town of Marlborough.  Plus, we will be studying the history of canals.

In English we will be writing descriptive paragraphs based on “The Wind in the Willows”, create our own ‘warning’ short story, a tourist information leaflet to persuade people to visit Marlborough and have a debate about whether we should fill in the canal or not. Plus we will study and perform a play for the end of term.  Our target is to write exciting and interesting sentences using a variety of punctuation.

During Art we will be studying Claude Monet and creating our own collages in pairs.   Plus create some printing based on the canal artwork of roses and castles.

Whilst in D.T. we will be making a pop – up book, using levers & linkages, to retell our short stories.

Every week we are set Maths homework online via the Abacus Maths Website.  Our teacher sets homework which reflects what is being done in the class. If we are unable to access our homework due to technical difficulties then it is our responsibility to inform our teacher and we will be expected to do it during our break times.

This term our Maths target is to be confident in the understanding and application of multiplication and division.  We may also be having another fun “Maths Day” in Term 5.

Finally, most of us are looking forward to staying at Braeside Education Centre, Devizes ( for a few days and going to Waterland ( to have a go at wind-surfing.  We will post photos on the school’s Facebook page to show you what we are up to on our days away. We may also stay over in school to try and raise some money for our adventures!
