Year 5 / 6

Welcome to year 5/6W! 


Y5/6 is taught by me,  Mrs Wood (previously known as Miss Hoey), and is supported by a range of lovely teaching assistants. This school year will be full of new exciting challenges and themes to support our learning! To help everyone to adjust and to settle in to their new class, please take note of the following information about our weekly routine. 



Our PE days are Wednesday and Friday. It is very important that children are equipped with their kit for all of their PE lessons and that those who wear earrings can either take them out or cover them up with protective tape.



We love reading together and rewarding independent reading in our class! Children are expected to bring their book bag to school everyday. This will help them to gain organisation skills which they will need in the very near future when they transition to high school. All children have been organised into an author team group and their reading diaries will be monitored once every week (a sticker on the front of their reading diary will remind them which is their day to be checked). If staff can see that children are reading regularly and are signing their book, showing what page they are up to, then they will achieve a team point for their whole school author group. At the end of the term, the author group with the most tokens wins a prize!


Homework club:


Homework will be given out on Friday and will be due to be handed in the following Wednesday. 

Y5/6 children can attend homework club on Mondays.


Our Learning:


Our First theme this year is 'Brilliant Britain'. Watch this space to see what we get up to!



Autumn Term - Brilliant Britain

Wow what a great fun we had acting out the Jewish festival of 'Simchat Torah'. We learnt about how this is a time when the Jewish community celebrate that they have finished reading their holy book - the Torah. 

Our 'Simchat Torah' experience!

Great Gardening!

WOW! Our members of the gardening club have had a HUGE find today in our school planters. This impressive courgette has made its way to the school kitchen ready to be made into courgette soup for our budding gardeners to enjoy!

Getting practical in science!

What a beautiful Christingle celebration!

Spring Term - Wonderful World

Cooking Native American Wild Rice!

Our Y5 Residential: Robin Wood!


What an amazing time we had at Robin Wood! We are SO proud of the challenges our Y5 children have overcome and how they over came their fears in the different activities! From sky-diving to escaping the piranha pool - they were amazing! They really did great job representing our school and our values!
