Welcome to Year 5/6


Year 5 and 6 are the final years of primary school. We continue to build on the independence of your child as a learner and a citizen in our local community. 

As we head towards secondary school choices, we prepare children for transition and ensure they have the key skills to support them for their next journey. 


The Year 6 children are required to take the Statutory government tests.

Church School Values

Term 1 - Honesty

Term 2 - Trust

Term 3 - Compassion

Term 4 - Respect

Term 5 - Forgiveness

Term 6 - Perserverance


Over the course of the year, the children are expected to read at both school and home. The children are encouraged to read a range of texts, these can be either their Accelerated Reading book or a book of their choice for pleasure. 

The children are responsible for logging their reading activity in their reading diary.


PE will take place on Wednesday afternoons. If there is a change to this there will be a dojo sent out and the children will be told if possible. 


Please ensure the children bring their PE kit to school in a suitable bag (black shorts, red top, appropriate hoodie and joggers if needed and a pair of trainers). 

Please also ensure that long hair can be tied back and any jewellery can be removed by child in lesson or before school if needed. 

Home learning

Each week both teaching groups will be set homework. This will be sent home as a paper copy and complete din their green homework books. 

Spellings are also set each week on spelling shed.

Spellings are set on Tuesday for testing the following Tuesday.

Homework is set on a Wednesday and due in the following Monday. 


The expectation is that homework is presented neatly as if it was work completed in school. No highlighters of felt pens to be used unless directed by the task. 

Trips/ Visitors

In Year 5/6 we learn about World War 2 and have a school trip to the International Bomber Command Centre, Lincoln.

As part of our local study of Ruskington, we will begin to explore the village and possibly travel a little further to our local city, Lincoln. 

Occasionally, we have online zoom calls with well known authors.

Currently, some of Year 5/6 go swimming each week.
