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.
Our topic for this term is William Shakespeare with a focus on what it is like to be part of a Shakespeare production. We have lots of exciting things to learn about including the different plays that were written by Shakespeare; the different roles within theatre including costume and prop design; and the settings and locations for the different plays. If your child would like to research this topic at home then this is very much welcomed and we will look forward to seeing anything extra your child has done at home.
