WELCOME TO EMERALD CLASS

Overview

Why Climb the Himalayas?

Our geography topic for this half term focusses on learning about the physical and human geography of mountains, with a particular focus on the Himalayan mountain range.

We will learn about the key features of mountains, where they can be found in the world and consider the impact of tourism on mountain environments.

In literacy lessons, we will write non-chronological reports about mountain animals before focussing on writing stories about a legendary creature said to live in the Himalayas - the Yeti.

R.E.

During our R.E. lessons, we will be learning about Christianity. We will be investigating Christian symbols as well as discussing the importance of Easter to Christians.

Read Write Inc Spelling

For all our Read Write Inc spelling sessions, the children will be split into groups depending on where they are up to.

Each group will have spellings to take home for a test at the end of the week. The test will be first thing on Friday morning and the new spellings will be given out on that day too.

This is part of the children’s homework as we feel it is very important that spellings are learnt in school and at home.

They will be expected to bring in their spelling sheet each Friday to show the staff what they have been doing at home.

Here is an example of the spelling homework the children receive each week. The words in bold are taken from the Year 5/6 statutory word list (tricky spellings children should know by the end of Year 6).
