Welcome to Year 5/6!
Our teachers are Miss Webb and Mrs Byrne.
In our classroom we love to learn! We each have jobs and responsibilities and work together to make our classroom a happy and friendly place. We are the oldest children in the school and are fantastic role models for the younger children.
Each day starts with a maths lesson. In year 5/6 we love maths, especially solving problems and practical activities! After break, we have a literacy lesson. We work on our reading and comprehension skills as well as writing and grammar. In the afternoons we have collective worship and learn about interesting topics!
Homework and Spellings
Homework will usually be given on Friday, due in for the following Tuesday. Spellings are given once a week and spelling tests are on Tuesday. Please can I stress how important it is that children in year 5 and 6 work on their times tables. Being rapid and accurate with times tables is so important for all areas of maths! Alongside this, children are expected to read their school reading book or their own book at home.
PE for the autumn term will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please can children come to school in PE uniform on these days.
