Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

Class 7 - Mrs Youd/Mrs Nordberg

Class 8 -  Miss Seavers 

Class 9 - Miss Woodall

On this page you will find all the information you or your child will need to help them keep up to date with Year 5 and 6 news.

Should you have any problems or concerns regarding your child, or would generally like more information, then please don’t hesitate to come in and see your child’s teacher.

We are very fortunate that we have some super support staff who work alongside our teachers in Upper Key Stage 2. They are Mrs Binnington, Miss Davill and Mrs Hodder. They are supporting the children across the Upper Key Stage 2 classes. Mrs Fisher and Mrs Brown also teach Upper KS2 classes during class teacher's PPA time. As a Key Stage we try to maintain an even spread of support throughout the day. The support staff timetables vary where there is need. 

Year 6 head to Derwentwater next week, please see the link below for their kit list. Follow our travels on Twitter @Hosmprimary

Areas of Study:                                                                                          

Our three classes will be studying The Anglo Saxons and The Vikings in History this term. In Science, we will be covering work on sound and light. The children will take part in lots of practical lessons involving measuring light and hearing different sounds.  The R.E. theme for this term will be ‘Justice and Freedom’ focusing on Christianity and Hinduism. Alongside this, in PSHCE, we will be discussing money management. Our Art this term will focus upon our local environment. The children will have the opportunity to further develop their drawing and sketching skills. Our DT project will concentrate on food and nutrition. We are going to investigate burgers; the ingredients, the methods to make a burger and eventually design our own recipe. We will also continue with the children’s learning of French.

Mathletics

Mathletics will continue to be an integral part of the children’s homework and activities will be set regularly. For Big Maths, children also need to continue to practice their ‘learn-it’ facts and work on the quick recall of these.

Reading

We would also encourage regular reading with your child, which should be recorded in their Reading Record Book. Please click the books below for some questions you can ask your child while listening to them read.
