Year 5/6

Welcome to Year 5/6!!

Here we go!! Another brand new year full of exciting possibilities, and learning experiences. There's a lot to look forward to including visits, visitors and events, so keep checking the school calendar for updates. Coming up are some excellent topics as well as opportunities for children to explore their own learning and interests.
Below you will find lots of links to useful information about our class and to the children's learning, including photos and examples of work. However, if you require any other additional information on school matters or your child's progress or you just want to nip in for a quick chat, we are always happy to help.
Here's to a happy and fruitful year as some of the children take their final steps in their primary education and others prepare for Year 6.

Our Class Vision
In our class we achieve our goals. We are skilled and make each other proud by working hard, being a good listener, a good role model and by always doing our best. We are caring towards each other and the environment. We are also generous to others and are patient and grateful for our friends. In our class we are cool and amazingly awesome.
 

Homework

Homework will be set on Friday and should be returned to school by Tuesday. Tasks will either be set as work in Learning Logs or will be set online on My Maths. There are many other skills that children can be practising at home, including reading  every evening, learning times tables and practising literacy and numeracy skills in real-life contexts e.g. working out percentages in sales.

If there are any issues concerning homework, please don't hesitate in contacting school so that the situation can be resolved.

 

Reading

By Years 5 and 6 children will be reading with a great deal more independence and will have clear preferences as to what they enjoy reading. With this in mind, they are welcome to bring in their own books to school or choose from the class and school library. All that we ask is that their book is in every day, they are filling in their reading records (which you are also welcome to make comments in) and that they are reading every day. The teaching of reading will take place in Guided and Shared reading which will form part of the children's language education. They will also learn to apply their skills through other subjects.

 

PE

This year PE lessons will take place on:

Wednesday - Outdoor Games (Jogging bottoms, warm top and trainers)

Thursday - Indoor Dance and Gymnastics (black shorts and white t-shirts/black pumps if pupils do not wish to work in bare feet) 

Thursday  - Forest Schools  - The timetable will change this year so that children can experience Forest Schools during each half term. You will be notified of dates before hand.

 

Snack

School snack is available every day for the cost of £1 per week. Please pay either every half term or term via the school office or the school gateway. Thank you.
