Year 5/6 - Banksy



Welcome to Banksy Class

Year 5 and 6



Welcome back to a new term!


We hope you had a lovely summer and are ready to come back to school for a fun filled term. 


This year our class is named 'Banksy,' after the graffiti artist. We have already begun to explore his techniques of choice and used stencils to create our own artwork.  We will continue to discuss the meaning of his art throughout the year and discuss the issues surrounding his work. 



Our topic for our learning this term is: Bloodheart. 


The children will use this topic as an enquiry based approach in which they will be able to explore and investigate the importance and function of the heart, while reviewing how diets and lifestyle choice can impact our organs.  


English: This term we will be reading 'Pig heart boy,' by Malorie Blackman. We will identify key controversial issues that arise in the book, to debate and write arguments. We will examine the features of a variety of texts, in order to apply into our writing. When reading our text, we will apply our VIPERS, to review a variety of questions and use the text to find evidence to support our view. 



 Maths: As a class, we will consolidating our prior knowledge of place value and apply it to the four operations: addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will then review how numbers are presented in roman numerals and comparing their value. Through reviewing our place value, we will use this information to round and order numbers, of both positive and negative nature.  


PE, this term, will be on a Thursday and a Friday. Please make sure that your children have their PE Kits in on these days.


If you have any questions or queries, please come and talk to us.


Miss Doran and Mrs Annakie
