Welcome To The Y5/6 Homepage!

           Autumn Term 2019                         

Welcome back!  We hope you've had a great summer holiday and are ready to start the new academic year.


This term our topic is 'To Infinity and Beyond!' where we'll be exploring the space race between the USA and Russia as well as learning all about the Earth, Sun and Moon and the rest of the our solar system  .  As part of our topic we'll be reading 'George's Secret Key To The Universe' ' by Lucy Hawking.  See below for a synopsis of the book.

'George's pet pig breaks through the fence into the garden next door - introducing him to his new neighbours: the scientist, Eric, his daughter, Annie, and a super-intelligent computer called Cosmos.

And from that moment George's life will never be the same again, for Cosmos can open a portal to any point in outer space . . .'



It is still important that children in Year 5 and 6 work at improving their spelling which is a key part of the National Curriculum for writing.  Children will practise spellings in the mornings when they come in to school.  They also will be taught spelling in year groups as part of their English lessons. For homework, children will have the Year 5 and 6 list of spellings to learn – these are challenging spellings so will need some work throughout the half term.  They will also have spelling homework some weeks using ‘Spelling Shed’.


As a minimum, all children are asked to read at least 3 times a week as part of their weekly homework and have it signed in their planner by an adult. These will be checked by their English teacher in English lessons.  Children should tell their teacher when they need to change their book and they will complete an Accelerated Reader quiz on an iPad before changing it.

Please be aware that revision activities may be set for children in Year 5 and 6 in addition to other homework as required. 

Topic homework

This term we would like children to complete ONE piece of topic homework of their choice about the Earth and Space topic.  This can be written research, an art project, computer-based – anything which interests them.  We hope this will help children to focus on the one piece of work. Please bring in completed homework whenever it us ready and we will display it in the classroom.   



PE sessions will take place for children in Year 5 and 6 on a TUESDAY with Mrs Wilson and Sports Coaching North West.  

Children will need appropriate warm outdoor PE kit in school on TUESDAYS as they will be outside for the afternoon.  Please refer to our PE uniform for more information. 


E-Safety - Who Are We Online?

This term in E-Safety we're focussing on our online presence - who we are and how we act online.  We'll be investigating apps and games to see how we interact with others and how we can safeguard ourselves using privacy settings.
