Bradford Council have introduced a new transition topic for Year 6 around a book called 'Boy 87'. When the children move into Year 7 in September their schools will also be doing work around it. The English unit for this book is available to download further down the page. Year 6 remember to pick up your free book from the office.
School have now subscribed to White Rose Maths Home Learning. Therefore you will have all the sheets to go with the daily videos. Download each lesson for the whole week underneath our Learning Grid. The answer are also available so you can mark your own work!

What are we learning?
This half term we are excited to be learning about the Galapagos Islands. We will be learning about the geography of the islands and what makes them unique: including Darwin and Wallace's explorations and scientific investigations of the Galapagos. We will be reading, 'Amazing Evolution: The Journey of Life' a beautiful non-fiction text by Anna Claybourne. In English, we will be reading and analysing the classic 'Just So Stories' and 'Jungle Book' by Rudyard Kipling. We will write our own 'Just So Story' in the same style. In art and design, we will be creating 'Evolution Art'... we can't wait!

Maths/ Grammar homework day - ALL
Specific maths or grammar written homework will be sent home on a Friday. This will be in your child's homework book. It will be expected back in school by the following Tuesday.
Homework diaries (which are also reading records) must be brought to and from school every day. Please sign your child's homework diary every week.
We encourage children to practise their times tables and division facts for our weekly tests. Your child will bring their completed test home each week so you can see their score and practise any errors.
ALL children also have a times table Rockstars login which is great for practising at home. This can be accessed via a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Children may be given specific challenges to complete as required.
There are also some great times table games online including :
Spellings are learned on a 2 weekly basis. Spellings are practised in school regularly and will also be written into your child's homework diary so they can practise at home. The website below is also great for practising spellings at home. It can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Year 5/6 should read a chapter book for at least fifteen minutes most nights (3 times a week minimum). We also encourage children in UKS2 to read classic children's novels. Reading to your child is also still very valuable - they aren't too old just yet! Please make a note in your child's homework diary when you have read together.
Please also encourage your child to practise their reading skills on readtheory.org.uk. Many thanks.
Please also remember our school library is open after school Monday-Thursday 3.15-3.30.
Knowledge Organiser Homework
Our new knowledge organisers detail the learning which will take place in topic lessons. Please try and learn the key facts and vocabulary by heart.
