Skylarks 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Skylarks Class Page
Our class teacher is Miss Thwaites and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hulse.
This year we will be running the theme of Identity throughout the year. During this term we will be learning all about Our Local Ancestors. We will be completing a local history study on Lostock Gralam and to develop our chronological knowledge and understanding of locality. We will be exploring questions about who we are, where we came from, how Lostock has changed and how did people come to Lostock.
This term we will be focusing on two stories to inspire our writing work. In Autumn one we will be focusing on the book ‘Queen of the falls’ written by Chris Van Allsburg. In Autumn two we will be focussing on the book ‘The Lost Happy Endings’ written by Carol Ann Duffy’.
In our Autumn term we will be focusing on place value, addition and subtraction, statistics, multiplication and division and measurement.
A big focus in our maths will be continuing to learn practice and recap our times tables. The children will be using Time Tables Rockstars to help them to achieve this. The log ins for this will be located in the children’s reading diaries.
Please find attached the year 5 and 6 statutory spellings. Ten spellings will be given every Friday for the children to focus on. One week they will focus on the statutory words and the following week would be the spellings learnt in class. These spellings will alternate.
