To see the other curriculum topics and areas we are covering this year, please see the document below entitled Y5/6 curriculum.





As you know, we love reading and really value how important - and fun - it is. I would like you to read at least 5 days a week for at least 20 minutes. Please record your reading in the reading record at the front of the homework book and each entry needs to be signed by an adult. There will be questions on the learning letter which mirror what the children have been learning in class and will support reading at home. Try to ensure the texts you read are appropriately challenging so you can explore new, interesting vocabulary and discuss the characters and themes. In class, the children said they most enjoy the discussion part of reading lessons and this 'home learning' time offers the family a fantastic opportunity to get immersed in a book together. It's important to read a broad range of texts and these could include…school books, newspapers, favourite annuals, comics, games instructions, recipes, emails and the reading comprehension tasks that were sent home.


Each week the children will also be asked to learn and practise spellings online by accessing Google Classroom and Spelling Shed. In addition to this, a maths task will be set each week which will reflect and further develop the skills the children are working on in class. Again, this will be made accessible through Google Classrooms. 



 Homework is given on Friday and due in the following Thursday.


Things to remember:

PE Kits - come in your PE kit on Wednesdays.
Swimming Kits – will be needed by some children as the year progresses and parents will be informed closer to the time.

Bring a named water bottle (and sun cream and sunhat if it’s going to be hot or a hat and gloves if it's cold)


FORCES - We learnt all about air resistance by investigating the effect it has on different parachutes.

CLIMBING WALL - We challenged ourselves, encouraged each other and tested our resilience as we took on 'The Wall'!
