Welcome to Year 5 and 6!

5/6LW (Class 8) - Mrs Wilcox

6GW (Class 9) - Miss Woodall

Welcome back to a new school year! 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, Mrs Hodder and Mrs Thompson. They are supporting the children across the Upper Key Stage 2 classes. 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. 

Summer Term

 

Areas of Study:                                                                                          

Our three classes will be studying the Iron Age and Bronze Age and the Romans, in History this term. Our DT project will closely relate to this and the children will look into building shelters. We are also planning an outdoor learning day this term where the children can experience ‘Life as a Roman’.

In Science, we will be covering the human body specifically focusing on growing, changing and what keeps our bodies healthy. The R.E. theme for this term will be ‘Living a faith’ focusing on key religious figures. Alongside this, in PSHCE, we will be discussing Citizenship, Relationships, Personal Development and Lifestyles. 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.
