Year 5/6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

Welcome to the Autumn Term!


In our class we work together as a team and all look after each other.  We are the oldest children in the school and are fantastic role models for the younger children.


The staff in year 5 and 6 are always here to help, so please do not hesitate to come and see me either before or after school if you have any questions or queries. 



 Each school day starts with a maths lesson. In year 5 and 6 we love maths, especially solving complex problems and practical activities! After break, we have English! We work on our reading and comprehension skills as well as writing and grammar. Our topic this term is Marvellous Maps and in Science we are learning all about materials and their properties



The children will take part in RE lessons each week.

Art & DT

Homework and Spellings

Homework will usually be given on Tuesday, 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 either their school reading book if they have one or their own books at home.


Thank you for your continued support!
