Year 5/6

Year 5 and 6!




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. 


Here is some key information about our school day. We have different start times, breaks and home times to help keep us safe!


Start time  - 9:05

Morning break - 10:30 - 10:45

Lunch 12:30 - 1:15

Afternoon break - 2:15 - 2:30 

Home time - 3:30


 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. 



The children will take part in RE lessons each week. 

This term our themes are:

Art & DT

In art this half term we will enjoy learning about North American Art. 



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. Reading diaries must come into school EVERY DAY! 


Thank you for your continued support & I can't wait to have you all back in class!
