Picture 1

Welcome to Van Gogh Class 2019-20


Our teacher is Mrs Simber and our TA is Mrs Everest,  Mrs Kimble also teaches the class every Wednesday. 


Our creative curriculum topic this term is 'Shaking States' our main focus will be on  North America (Geography).  Due to following a creative curriculum, wherever possible, all subjects this term will be linked to this topic.  However, Science and RE will be taught discreetly.  In science our focus will be 'Living Things and their Habitats' and in RE we will be investigating the question, 'Is it better to express your religion in arts and architecture or in charity and generosity?


This term, we are basing our English learning around the book, 'There's a Boy in the Girls' bathroom' by Louis Sachar. We will also be focusing on Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar and continuing to practise use of different reading skills in preparation for the upcoming SATs.


For more information on our curriculum, please see the parent overview and the curriculum map attached below.


Maths and English homework will to be set on a weekly basis along with the challenge homework for the half term.


Year 5/6 spellings lists have been given out and children will also be given weekly spellings to learn (see termly spelling lists attached below)
