Welcome to Year 5 & 6 - Term 6
Kingfishers - Miss Thorne - Year 5
Toucans - Mrs Coumbe - Year 5/6
Doves - Miss Townsend - Year 6
We hope your children are enjoying their final term of Year 5, or for the Year 6's, Primary School. This term so far we have enjoyed a walk through the meadows for a personal perserverance challenge, the children were amazing in the heat! Year 6 have been practising their play and creating lots of amazing writing pieces. Year 5 have been doing some lovely art work and researching the Olympics as part of topic work as well as English and Maths as usual. All in all we are having a great term.
This term, our topic is still Bright Lights, Big Cities. In history we are looking at sporting events both local and worldwide. In art, we have been learning about American artists such as Leonora Carrington and Frida Kahlo and creating art work inspired by them. In science we are studying electricity. In maths, the children will be using their previous knowledge to apply it to complex problem solving/investigations, using a range of maths skills. In RE, the children will be learning about Islamic beliefs in life after death. In PE the children will be learning skills in bat and field games and athletics.
The children will be given their homework on a Tuesday and it must be completed by the following Monday:
- Topic (optional)
- MyMaths (electronic)
- Reading (at least 4 x a week)
- Grammar and Punctuation (Year 6 only)
This may change slightly after SATS for Year 6, more information to follow.
Please ensure the children have their PE kits in all week to allow for changes in the timetable.
Children must have: black shorts, white t-shirt, trainers, suitable jogging bottoms and jumper for the colder months (not school trousers or jumper).
If your child wishes to play sport at lunchtimes, please could you also provide an additional kit.

Team Building Day and The Year 6 Sleepover
On Friday 9th September, all year 6 took part in a team building day at Gateway School. The day was a valuable learning experience for the children, exploring how to work together as a team to be successful, preserving when tasks don’t always go to plan, and it encouraged flexible thinking, which will definitely aid their challenging/enjoyable year ahead. Overll, the children had a great day and were brilliantly behaved.
The day was not over yet…
The year 6 children were then invited to have a year 6 sleepover to help the children bond with their new classmates and teachers. It was a great success! The children played games, watched a movie, had story time and were fed ‘healthy’ pizza and chips, finished off with popcorn and sweets. Again, the children were super throughout the sleepover and all the year 5/6 team were very impressed; we look forward to an exciting year ahead.
