Year 5 & 6

We have had a great start to the Autumn term in Year 5/6.  We are enjoying our current learning about World War Two and excited about class visit to Eden Camp World Modern History Theme Museum and being able to invite you into school at the end of term so the children can share some of their learning.



These should include: white t shirt, blue or black shorts, sweatshirt, tracksuit bottoms & trainers; please ensure these are all named. Our regular PE days are Tuesday & Wednesday.



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.

Class Photographs

Eden Camp

As part of our World War 2 related learning we visited Eden Camp Modern History Theme Museum near. Situated in an ex WW2 Prisoner of war camp, this was a great place to view military vehicles and exhibits related to our studies.

Indian Day

Together with pupils from Fountains Earth we enjoyed learning about India and its culture on our Whole school Cultural Day. 


We had lots of fun in science, investigating with torches and mirrors, to find out how light, travels, reflects and can be made to change direction.  We particularly enjoyed trying out our homemade periscopes.
