Hello and welcome to Year 5/6!

This year your children will be in one of three home classes; 5/6K, 5/6C or 5/6R!

Your children will be registered in their home classes in a morning. Please ensure all money coming into school is in a clearly labelled enveloped stating your child’s name and what the money is for.

After registration, year 5s will either be in Mr Flanagan’s or Miss Connell’s class  and year 6s will either be in Mrs Richard’s or Ms Kane’s class for Maths, Literacy, Reading and SPaG.

In the afternoon, children will be registered in their home classes and will stay in those classes for topic subjects.

On a Monday afternoon, children in both years will have music with Mr Howlett-Right who is a specialised music teacher from the Wickersley Partnership Trust.

On a Thursday morning, children in both years will have a MFL lesson with a MFL teacher from the Wickersley Partnership Trust.

On a Thursday afternoon, children will be separated into their year group classes for PE which is delivered by a trained PE teacher from the Wickersley Partnership Trust. Please make sure children have correct kit following the school’s PE policy.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will be expected back into school by Wednesday so that teachers are able to mark and feedback.

Golden assembly is on a Friday afternoon at 2pm until 2:30pm.

Our topic for this term, is World War 1 and we are very excited about the fun lessons that we have planned! We look forward to becoming World War 1 experts especially as we near the 100 year anniversary!

This afternoon, Year 5 and 6 had a special visitor in school. John from the Rotherham Library service kindly came to speak to us about World War 1 which is our current topic. He told us all about the story of Albert from Catcliffe and even shared some of his letters home.
