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 note that payments to the school must now be completed via parent pay and school cannot accept cash.

After registration, year 5s will either be in Mrs Lee’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 return to their year 5 or year 6 classes.

On a Wednesday afternoon, year 5 children will be in their afternoon classes for PE. On Thursday afternoon, year 6 children will be in their afternoon classes for PE. This PE 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.

Today, we started our Shakespeare Festival experience and we met Ginny who is going to be our Shakespeare expert. Together we looked at our Acts and thought about the different ways that we could tell the story. It was very exciting and we all had a great day!

This week we have been learning about Hamlet which is our chosen Shakespeare play for the Shakespeare Festival. After learning about Act 2, we used freeze frames to re-create the main parts of the story. Can you tell what might be happening in each of our freeze frames?
