Class 12 – Year 5/6

Hi and Welcome to Class 12 - Year 5/6

We are so excited so welcome you into Class 12.

In Spring Term, we will be looking at the Victorians era, the Industrial Revolution and the growth of the British Empire before moving onto local history. In Computing, we will look at flat-file databases and how to search through records using fields along with creating games in Scratch. In Art, we will be looking at textiles and weaving and after half term we will be printing linking this to William Morris. In science, we will be looking at forces and how they act upon one another before studying the Earth, Sun and Moon. In RSHE, we will be focusing on healthy online relationships and how to keep ourselves safe online, before moving onto Mental Wellbeing. Mechancal Systems is our topic in Design and Technology after half term, when we will be looking at pulleys and gears and making links to our science topic, forces. In Religious Education, we focus on three questions; ‘Do we all have a mission in life?’, ‘Why do we need memories?’ and ‘Why do we need to make sacrifices?’. In Spanish, we look at how people in Spain celebrate the new year and our hobbies and sports along with food and Easter.

In English, during Autumn term, we will be looking at two books ‘The Selfish Giant’ by Oscar Wilde when we will be writing descriptive pieces, diaries, newspaper reports and retelling the story from the giant’s point of view and ‘The Deepest Dark by Chris Hadfield, for this we will be writing a biography and a non-chronological report.

In maths, we will be learning about: time; position and direction, fractions, decimals and percentages; ratio and proportion, algebra, statistics shape and measure.

Our doors open at 8.40 and your child will be greeted with a smile as they enter class

Once in class, there will be morning work to be getting on with – please encourage your child to arrive at school as soon as possible as every minute counts.

English and maths are taught daily and are followed by other exciting lessons: RE, RSHE, computing, history, geography, science, art, design and technology, PE, music and Spanish throughout the week. Please see the newsletter to see our topics this term.

Breaktime – 11.00-11.15

Lunchtime 12.45-1.30

The school day finishes at 3.20 when children can be collected front the playground at the front of school or, if we have written permission from parents, children can walk home.

Other general information:

P.E Days

Children have PE on a Wednesday and a Friday. They can come to school in their PE kit – either navy shorts and a red t-shirt or a navy tracksuit and red t-shirt along with black trainers.

Library Days

Children can change their library books on a Friday.


Homework is handed out every Friday and needs to be returned the following Friday.

Each week Year 5/6 will get spellings, maths and English. There are also times when projects linked to science, geography or history may be sent home.

Please make sure children read 3 times a week and access Spelling Shed.

We would like our class to be ‘Green Readers’, in order for that to happen we need to have over 90% of our class reading at least 3 times a week. Obviously, we would like to have 100% every week!


I’m looking forward to an exciting year in year 5/6 and am here to support your children in any way I can.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to speak to me on the playground at the end of the day, by ClassDojo or phone the school office and leave a message, and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Mrs Lord
