Welcome to Darwin class.

Welcome to Darwin class, Mrs Batchelor is our teacher, Mrs Wykes and Mrs Fabry are our Teaching Assistants


This term our topic will be ‘Wow! world - It's physical'. During the topic, we will be writing a variety of texts including instructions, newspaper articles, diary entries and many more. We will also be learning about light and Evolution within Science.


Years five and six are important years as we prepare for the SATs and the transition into secondary school. To help the children with this please encourage them to read at home and then quiz them on what they have read. Please use ‘why’, ’how’, ‘how do you know’ and ‘what makes you think that’ as sentence starters.


This half term is going to be very busy as the year 6's prepare for their SATs which are the week beginning 9th May. Please encourage your child to complete their workbook that has been sent home to support them in their preparation.


Times tables are really important in our Maths work so rehearsing them will really help (times tables rocks stars is brilliant for this; all children have a login). Every Friday the children attempt to defeat a Superhero, please encourage them to practice for them.


Please come to school in your PE kit on Thursdays and Fridays. 


After half term we will be swimming everyday, please remember to bring your swimming kit (more information to follow)


Each term Darwin class will have homework as well as daily reading.
