Skylark Class

Summer Term

Dear Parents,

Welcome to our final termly newsletter.

This term we will be continuing with our space topic.  We will be planning and writing a non-chronological report about Mars, creating a space timeline that shows key historic events, finding out where asteroids and meteors originate and what NASA’s plans for Mars are for the future.

We will also be learning about the Ancient Mayan Civilization.  This will involve us locating places on a map, looking at what and who the Mayans worshiped, learning about their number system, their writing and their diet.

In Literacy we will be focusing on the true story of the runaway slave Henry Box Brown.  We will be writing a biography about Henry.  We will also be writing a newspaper report that is based on a book called, ‘The Promise.’

There will be a focus on shape and translation and converting different units of measure in Maths this term.

PE will be on a Wednesday afternoon this term and Year 5 will be focusing on different invasion games as well as getting ready for our sports day.

Mr Chris Varnom and Mrs Lisa Terry
