Eagle Class

Welcome to Term 6!

In this term our topic is...Properties and changes of materials!

A fantastic science focused topic that will teach the children a range of amazing science skills. In this topic we look at the properties of different materials, we will learn how to group these materials and investigate how materials change through practical experiments. We will also be linking this with our class text - The Polar Bear Explorers Club! Alongside this, we will be participating in engaging and exciting creative dance sessions, high quality P.E, marvelous Maths lessons and of course amazing art lessons.

 

We will continue to develop and promote wellbeing, teach high quality PSHE lessons and fill any gaps missed from the period of time when schools were closed,  as well as teach the new core learning from the Year 5 Curriculum. We will also be ensuring that the children are able to engage in creative opportunities to support and enhance wellbeing.

Please message me via ClassDojo if you have any questions or require any further information :)
