Welcome to Mrs Martin's Class!
Just a quick note to let you know a few details about this academic year.
P.E will be on Fridays - Please ensure that P.E kits are in school every Friday. P.E kits will be brought home at the end of every Friday due to a lack of storage space for them.
Please can you ensure that your child has their reading book in school every day!
Could you also provide your child with a black biro, pencil, a 30cm ruler and a glue stick for their class work.
Thank you very much for your cooperation in these matters!
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.

Autumn Term 2019
Dosbarth Mrs Martin.
During this Autumn Term the children will be studying the topic ‘Alchemy Island’. Within this topic we will be learning all about the ‘Changes of State’ that can take place within materials. The children will investigate creating mixtures (predicting and observing what happens when materials are mixed with others) and also will explore processes that can be used in order to separate mixtures (discussing whether a change is reversible or irreversible).
In English, pupils will be developing their understanding and writing of Non- Chronological reports and Biography writing (Historical Portraits for Year 5). Year 6 Pupils will focus on writing Non Chronological reports about a hobby of choice and about a ‘Modern Mixture’ (Topic Link) while Year 5 will focus on writing a report about our school. Biography / Historical Portrait writing will involve pupils writing a brief biography for a famous person of choice and also for a famous scientist.
In Science, we will be exploring the properties of materials, reversible and irreversible changes. Within this topic, pupils will have the opportunity to conduct practical investigations in order to discover which materials change and how they change.
Dosbarth Mrs Martin will also be reflecting on Christian beliefs and how these affect people’s everyday lives. Pupils will also be studying the Creation story and how some Christians find Science and Faith compatible.
