Hello everyone and welcome back to Skylarks weekly blog 😊

What a fantastic week we have had! The highlight of the week has to be Northwich Sings on Tuesday evening. The children behaved exceptionally all day and sang so beautifully. We hope you enjoyed it as much as we did!


Next week (W.B. 27.06.22)



Please send party-wear costumes into school ASAP for the KS2 production.

Tuesday 28th June: KS2 performance 1.30pm and 5pm.

Thursday 30th June: KS2 performance 1.30pm and 5pm.


In English this week, we will continue to publish our persuasive information texts on landfill. The children worked so hard on their first drafts and I can’t wait to read their final pieces of published writing.

In maths this week, we will be extended our understanding of fractions and decimals to include thousandths. We will also consolidate our understanding of the four operations through daily 4-A-Day activities.

In science we will focus on the question: What causes day and night? We will use the idea of the Earth’s rotation to explain day and night and the apparent movement of the sun across the sky.

In our topic lesson, we will be working on the project set for us by the Refill Shed in Davenham: to design their new window display to help spread their message and encourage more people to visit. We will also consider what we can do to become more sustainable in our own lives.

In art we will continue to look at the artwork of our focus artist: Leonardo Da Vinci. Next week, we will analyse his artwork including the techniques he has used and we will consider how his sketches make us feel.

In RE, we will continue with our learning on Islam, extending our understanding of how Ramadan and Eid are celebrated.

In PE, we will continue to learn our dance for the KS2 production.

Our PE day this term is on Friday so your child should come to school in their PE kit on this day. Please remember PE kits should either be school kits or plain black/blue.



In year 5 the children will be set a weekly maths homework that they should complete and mark at home using the answers in the back of the homework book.

If your child is finding the homework tricky, I will ensure that supervision is provided on a Thursday lunchtime for your child to ask any questions or receive some support to complete their homework.

The children should page 34 of the homework book this week to be returned by Friday 1st July.


Please also encourage your child to read for 20 minutes each evening and practice their spellings/times tables. The following websites are both great for times tables practice:




Our spellings for the quiz on Friday 1st July will be the next 10 words from the Y5/6 statutory word list:

symbol, system, temperature, thorough, twelfth, variety, vegetable, vehicle, yacht, restaurant


Please remember that if you have any questions or queries, do not hesitate to get in contact 😊
