Year 5 & Year 6



Welcome back to a new school year!  We hope that you have all had a fantastic summer and have settled back smoothly into the school routine. The children have all settled down well into their new classes and we, Miss Pugh, Miss Cope and Mrs Lawrence, are really looking forward to working with them over the coming year, which is full of exciting topics! This year we will have Mrs Chambers and Mrs Taylor working alongside the Year 5/6 team, along with Mrs Shaw and Mrs Kent at different times throughout the week. We have started the new school year as we always do, by looking at our Mission Statement, Gospel Values and Class Charity.


Our topic for the first half of the Advent Term is “How are you ‘a wonder’?’’ We are excited to use the book ‘Wonder’ by R J Palacio to drive the learning across the curriculum and this will support our Literacy lessons. If children have their own copy, they are more than welcome to bring these in to read alongside the teacher, but we ask that these are clearly named so they don’t go missing. PSHE will be a huge focus for us this term, looking at how we treat other people, how we can include others and understanding more about our diverse world and community, aligning nicely with our RE topic of ‘Loving’. We are also really looking forward to our science topic, which will include investigations into the wonder of inheritance, evolution and what each individual can bring to our classroom. We will of course also continue to develop the key areas of Literacy, Numeracy, Computing and RE alongside this.
