Year 5/6

Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

Welcome to the Spring 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. 

This term our themes are:


  • Sources - The Bible, the special book for the Church
  • Unity - Eucharist enabling people to live in communion 
  • Death and New Life - Celebrating Jesus' death and resurrection


Children will also take part in collective worship daily.



This term we will cover: 

  • Place value and calculations 
  • Decimals and fractions
  • Time
  • Data
  • Multiplication 
  • Measure
  • Algebra
  • Ratio


In English our topics are:

  • Short spooky stories
  • Drama
  • Arguments and Debates
  • Reports
  • Poetic Style 



P.E will be every Monday and Tuesday. The children will come to school in their PE kits. 


Art & DT

In art this half term we will enjoy learning about Christian Lacroix



In computing we are learning all about coding, blogging, text adventures and online safety.


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!
