We have been very busy preparing the allotment for winter. We have planted bulbs, covered some of the flower beds, and even harvested pumpkins, rosemary, sage and a sunflower for the Harvest Festival!

The British Museum

Welcome to year 5 & 6 and Hawthorn Class!

We will be doing PE on Monday and Games on Thursday. PE kit should be in school every day.

Please remember.....

  • always have a good reading book in school and read every day at home.
  • to have your super 6 stationary (blue writing pen, pencil, ruler, eraser, sharpener, glue stick) every day in a small pencil case.


Autumn 2019


This term we will be discovering what life was like for the Ancient Greeks and the impact their legacy has had on our lives today.  Many of our lessons will be linked to this topic, especially in English and art.

We visited The British Museum to further our understanding of this fascinating period of history. 

In science we will be building on our knowledge of electricity - making more complex circuits and experimenting with a variety of components. After half term, we will be learning about adaptation and evolution, exploring the findings of a variety of scientists over time.

PE lessons are twice a week and cover a range of skills including playing netball, football and some touch rugby during the World Cup..

This is the spelling list that we will be working on (both year 5 & 6) this half of term. Some children may have alternative lists.



Homework is usually set on a Friday and is expected in for marking by the following Wednesday at the latest.  House points are awarded for submitting homework before the deadline and they are also awarded for excellent effort/attainment.  If homework is late, then pupils will complete it at breaktime/lunchtime.


In addition, you can always look at the web links below and practice your literacy, grammar and maths skills.
