Otters class

Mrs Hall, Mrs Jones and Miss Warren

Welcome to Otters with Mrs Hall, Mrs Jones and Miss Warren. We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.  


In Otters we have high expectations of ourselves and each other and are always striving to be better learners.  


This term, KS2 SATs are from the 9th-12th May.  


In English we will be reading Wonder by R.J Palacio and using this emotional story as a stimulus for writing many different types of writing. Later in the term, we will be reading The Garbage King by Elizabeth Laird which follows two boys from very different backgrounds who are drawn together under difficult circumstances. Spelling, grammar, and handwriting will be a daily focus.  


In mathematics we will be focusing on real-life maths challenges and investigations. Arithmetic is a very important skill in year 6 which will be practised daily. 


In Science topics are evolution and living things and their habitats. We will be focusing particularly on adaptation.  


This term we are really looking forward to enrichment week which includes a 2-day residential to Huish Woods, a sports tournament, art day and a visit from the Pancake Pod. 


After the May half term, we will be spending lots of time preparing for our end of year play, Peter Pan which includes lots of exciting songs. Our DT project this term will be to make props for the play. 


In Otters P.E is on a Monday and a Friday. 

Homework is set on a Tuesday and returned the following Tuesday.
