Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

Welcome to Buzzard Class! 
 
We are a Year 5 and 6 Class and our teacher is Mrs. Braun.  Our Teaching Assistant is Mr. Gatrell.
 
Mrs. Braun teaches us every morning and on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. On Monday and Friday afternoons Mrs. Brownbill teaches us and on Tuesday wedo Bury Rangers in the woodland. This is a bit like forest schools but we also learn other curriculum things too.
 
This term we have two units to cover: Brilliant Bury, where we will be making ceramic poppies and learning about the WW1 centenary, and  Anglo Saxon and Viking invaders where will will learn about what Britain was like before and after invasion.
 
We will also be taking part in a 'National Park swap' with the Broads National Park in Suffolk, where we will be comparing it to the South Downs and looking for similarities. 
 
This year we will have lots of opportunities to make films as we will be working with the brilliant 'A Tale Unfolds'. 
 
Home Learning
 
This year your work at home must include reading (and recording it) 5 times a week and learning the times tables that you are 'on'.  We also expect you to use Times Tables Rockstars and Spelling Shed at home to practise these key facts.
