Welcome to Year 5/6 and home to our class, ‘Chestnut’. This year we will be guiding the children on their journey through the year and enjoying many different aspects of the curriculum. 

We are responsible for your child’s education, safety and ultimately their happiness. If you have any concerns or you just want to talk about your child then you are more than welcome to come and discuss this with either one of us. Let’s hope for a productive and successful year!

Class News




Our topic this term is a real push with aspects of science. The areas covered will be the Sun, Earth and Moon and the other planets. Solids Liquids and gases will also figure strongly this term with Mrs Walker taking the class for science on Tuesday mornings. The children will be of course learning many key facts and taking part within different investigations that will require independent scientific write ups.

 Please read with your child at least 3 times per week. We will continue to ensure that daily reading lessons take place in school. Please encourage your child to read their book and discuss the events within the text.

P.E. Kits

P.E lessons will be outdoor on Tuesdays and will be focusing on summer sports including athletics. A cricket coach will also be coming in for an extra Thursday session. An indoor kit will be needed on Wednesdays so again a full P.E kit will be required.
