Year 5/ 6

Welcome to Year 5/6!


Upper Key stage 2 is about gaining more independence to help us learn and having more responsibilities around the school.


We involve the pupils to make our topics as exciting and inspiring as possible by them guiding us to what they would like to learn. We love doing lots of practical work, using Visual Literacy, using drama to help us learn, and going on exciting trips and having people in to talk to us about our topics.

Our termly topic.

This term our topic is Gallery Rebels

We are looking at a range of different artists and art styles that have made history over time. 

The children have studied Georgia O'Keeffe for the first few weeks and created their own still life drawing based on nature. 



Due to Covid 19 we are having one PE day per week for each year group. The children will come to school in their school PE kit (red/ white top and black shorts). They can wear jogging bottoms if they wish and bring a hoodie (black or blue preferably).


Year 5: Wednesday

Year 6: Monday



Homework and reading

All children have an English and Maths homework book to work through. 

We expect one workout for each subject completed per week. 

These are to be brought back to school on each Friday where they will be marked together. 


Additionally to this the children can practice their timetables on TTRockstars as well as using spelling shed to practice their spellings.


We would like the children to read with an adult at least 3 times a week. 


We have weekly spellings that we would like the children to practice on Spelling Shed from Tuesday to the following Monday. The children complete their spelling test on Mondays in both Year 5 and Year 6.


The children are given a list of words in school on Tuesday that they use as part of their morning work daily to help practice their spellings.
