Years 5 and 6 Blog

This half term children in Nursery will be learning about Growth and Plants. As part of their topic, children will be going for walks in the local area to look at plants growing and new life. Back in Nursery, there will be a flower shop and a fruit and veg stall for them to play in to extend their learning.


 

This half term our topic is 'Animals and Minibeasts'. We will be using our trip to Temple Newsam farm as the focus for learning about farm animals.

Our role play area is now a Vets Surgery giving the children the opportunity to find out about caring for animals. We would welcome any photographs of your pets to share with the class.

We will be exploring our outdoor area looking for minibeasts as we learn about them. The Unit will be getting a new class pet in the shape of Morag the Giant African Snail. The children will help to care for her.

During the fortnight that we will be exploring the Amazon Rainforest the children will be producing a wide variety of art work using different media.

Towards the end of this term the children will find out which year one classes they will be going into and they will get the opportunity to visit their new classrooms.


We have a very exciting term planned for the children in KS1 this term! In Literacy we will be reading the story 'Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs'. It's a brilliant book! Both teachers and children are very excited to start writing their own stories based around the book!!

Our Topic for this Half Term and next is 'We live in Lidget Green'. For this we will be visiting our local area and learning a little bit more about the place we live and the people who live here. 


This term Year 2 have SATs coming up too, so they will be working hard and trying their best. Year 1 will be practising for entering Year 2 by doing their work more independently on a morning, but continuing to enjoy continuous provision in the afternoons!


Our Topic for this Half Term is Enterprise in preparation for Enterprise Day which is on July 4th. 


This term, In Year 6 we are busy getting prepared for their SATS tests which are in the 3rd week of term.  In topic, we are continuing to study our chosen countries, which are Brazil, Zambia and Nicaragua.  Later in the term we will be doing work on Enterprise and starting to prepare for our end of year production!

At Lidget Green we take part in lots of projects where the whole school works together. This year, we are working towards several awards:

Investors in Pupils, Investors in Health, the Artsmark Award and the Primary Quality Science Mark.

Working towards awards like these help us to make sure that the education and opportunities we offer your children are of the highest quality, judged against National Standards.

You will find the latest news about all of these awards on this page, in addition to whole school activities like the Pegasus Club, our e-twinning with schools in Denmark and Spain and our new ‘Learning Log’ approach to homework.

Computer Science and Education Week








For the past term 5/6F, 6H and 6L have been looking at basic coding. It seems likely that in the future knowing how to code a computer will be a vital job skill, so we have been learning the skills we will need!

As well as the games that were showcased on this blog a few weeks back, we have been looking at other coding programmes and techniques.
