Year 5 & 6
Welcome to Year 5 and 6
Message from the class teacher
Welcome to class 4! In this class we work hard. We learn every day and we have fun while doing it. We encourage individuality, learn from mistakes and create citizens of the future.
We dream big but work hard.
We develop our ability to critically evaluate the world around us. We further develop our confidence, knowledge and skills to prepare us for a future world and realise the high aspirations we have for ourselves.
Our PE lessons are usually on Monday and Thursday afternoons. However, these days may change to accommodate other events so your child should have their PE kit in school for a full week.
Each week, your child will be given the following homework:
- One piece of English or Maths (alternate weeks)
- A reading book
- Spellings (tested on Wednesdays)
- A choice of activities from this half term’s Topic Grid (optional)
