Year 5/6 - Mandela Class

Welcome to Mandela Class

Our Teachers are Mrs Robson and our Learning Support Assistant is Mrs Bykowska.

 

We are currently learning about World War 1. This will include the causes of World War 1 and Life on the Western Front. We will also learn about the importance women played during the war and what happened after the war. We are currently using a short film ‘The Piano’ by Aiden Gibbons to support us in our written work. Our Class novel is Pig Heart Boy.

Our outdoor PE session is every Thursday. Please remember to come to school in your PE kit including jogging bottoms.

 

We follow God Matters in Religious Education (the Portsmouth Diocese scheme of learning). The children learn two and a half hours in KS2 each week. Our thematic topic learning (history, geography, art, design and technology) generally occurs in the afternoons.

 

Things that help us learn

We use Timestable Rockstars, Mathletics and Oxford Reading Owl to support our home learning. We have established the use of Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 2 and CGP revision guides in Year 6 to support our homework and SAT’s revision.

 

Our Curriculum Map

In Year 5 and 6, we have a biannual curriculum. This year you will learn about World War 1, The Changing Role of Women, Ancient Greeks and the Mayans as well as many more exciting and fun things. Take a look at our Curriculum Map to find out what we are going to learn about during the course of our learning journey this year.

 

Trips

In Year 5 and 6, to accompany this year’s learning, we go to the Science Centre & Planetarium in the Summer Term. Year 6, go on a residential adventure holiday for a week in the Autumn term.
