Year 5 and 6

Hello and welcome to Year 5 and 6, the Toucans, Eagles and Peacocks. 

Staff in our phase


Mrs Craig (Eagles Class)

Mrs Coumbe (Toucans Class)

Mrs Binnian (Peacocks Class)


Miss Wilkes and Mrs Yates are our phase teaching assistants who support the children's learning in all three classes. 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Strongman teach across the phase too. 

How we learn


In Year 5 and 6, we enjoy learning throughout the school day, which is based upon our topic. We take part in different types of activities within and outside the classroom. During the school year we particularly like visitors in our classrooms and going on school trips. Year 6 children will be looking forward to their residential trip at Yenworthy Lodge.  We also take part in a variety of sporting tournaments, with other local schools, where we always display our outstanding sportsmanship. 


Our school day includes teaching reading, maths and English lessons in the morning. In the afternoon we learn the foundation subjects and finish with a class story. 


Our learning is successful because we learn together as a team and we have a positive attitude. We revisit our learning and make links, so we can remember our new knowledge and skills.
