Welcome to Ash Class
Ash Class is taught by Mrs Pontet, ably assisted by Mrs Skinner,
Miss Morris and Mrs Larkins.
Year 5 and 6 are important years, both academically and socially and we have many exciting things to look forward to!
Year 5 and 6 October half term homework
Over half term please find or take a picture of you with one or both of your parents. Bring this into school on Tuesday 5th November. This is for our new science topic – ‘Inheritance’.
We will be discussing what you have inherited from your parents but also what you have acquired. So please have a chat with your parents to discover what skills, likes and dislikes, as well as looks you have in common with them.
You should complete at least one hour on Mathletics over the week.
Finish reading ‘Stormbreaker’. If you need to borrow a copy from school, please let us know.

This term we will be discovering what life was like for the Ancient Greeks and the impact their legacy has had on our lives today. Many of our lessons will be linked to this topic, especially in English and art.
We will also be visiting The British Museum to further our understanding of this fascinating period of history.
In science we will be building on our knowledge of electricity - making more complex circuits and experimenting with a variety of components. After half term, we will be learning about adaptation and evolution, exploring the findings of a variety of scientists over time.
PE lessons are twice a week and cover a range of skills including playing netball and football.
Homework will be set every week. Usually on a Friday to be handed in on the following Wednesday.
This will consist of maths, English and sometimes extra topic, science or other subjects.
I expect you to be reading every day and to try to vary the genres, authors and subjects matters of the books you read.
..... is set every Friday and must be handed in on the following Wednesday. It should take no longer than 30 minutes as it will usually be practising and reinforcing concepts we have been learning about in class. If you do find it too tricky, please ask an adult to sign to say you tried and then let me know so that I can help you further. Sometimes you will have a sheet to complete, sometimes an activity on Mathletics and maybe even a game to play with someone at home!
