Year 5 & 6

During the next few weeks we will conclude our study of Ancient Greece, finishing our Greek pots and completing our class novel ‘Shadow of the Minotaur'. After half term we will be studying World Religions and plan to visit a place of worship from another religion  to link with this RE unit.



Class Letters:



Our regular PE days continue to be Tuesday & Wednesday. PE kits should include: white t shirt, blue or black shorts, sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms & trainers; please ensure these are all named. After half-term, we will be taking Year 5/6 swimming at Nidderdale Pool on Tuesday afternoons for the remainder of the term. (Separate letter to follow)



Music is held every Wednesday. Children are invited to attend an extra practice with Mrs Hardcastle in the hall at 8.30am.



Children have been given a homework book which, together with their reading book & blue reading record, should be brought to school every day & taken home every afternoon.



All children are expected to read for 10 mins each night (either from their school reading book or a book they are enjoying at home) and record this in their blue reading record books.  Since we are working on reading for meaning & developing the children’s skills in using inference & deduction, it would be very valuable if you could ask them questions to check they understand what they have read.



Please check you have received a pack to support home learning of spellings.



Children will have daily maths homework. This may be maths facts/target work, times tables, games or questions which should take approximately 10-15 mins. If you are able to support your child by checking this homework with them & helping to work through any errors, this would be really useful. The children will check & mark the homework themselves the next day with the rest of the class.


Tuck shop: Thursday

Tuck shop is open at morning break. 40p will buy biscuit & juice. You may bring fruit any day to eat at break.


Every Day

Please bring your reading and Home/School book. It would really help if all children had a water bottle in school.


Start and End of the Day

The hall door will be opened at 8.45am. The hall door will be locked at 9am, if you arrive after this time, please enter through the main school entrance. Key Stage 2 finish at 3:30pm.

Robinwood Spring 2018

We had a great time putting our growth mindset and courage to the test on our three day residential visit to Robinwood Activity Centre in Todmorden. Everyone had a go at a combination of physical challenges such as climbing, canoeing,caving, zip wire and trapeze, together with group problem solving activities, including the Dungeon of Doom and the Piranha Pool.
