In Year 5/6 we have 3 classes:
5/6M - Miss Vaughan
5/6G - Mr Fry
5/6S - Miss Barnes
Children will need a water bottle, a packed lunch (if necessary) and a coat.
They will be able to bring book bags in to school on Tuesday and Friday as these are the days reading books are changed.
Children will be set a piece of English and Maths (usually Mathletics) homework each week. They will have a 'home' book that will be kept at home to do homework in. This book does not return to school. More information to follow.
This term our focus is
'The Struggle for England - Anglo-Saxons and Vikings'
In this topic we will investigate the period in history where the Angles, Saxons and Jutes invaded Britain and how they later battled with the Vikings to take control of Britain.
Please look at our topic webs below for further details of our learning through the year.
In Maths we use Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs) to help with children's fluency of number.
Please find below examples of the KIRFs we use in Year 5/6, alongside the KIRFs they should know from previous years.
