A warm welcome to Year 5/6 LC!


Yabba dabba doo!

We have had a busy term, making our own fossils and visiting Thorne Community Woods to imagine what it would be like living as a hunter-gatherer, back in the Stone Age. We have written descriptions and stories based on our understanding as well as creating cave paintings. Please read our work, which is currently on display down the main corridor, opposite the hall.




Earth and Beyond!


For our next topic, we will be learning all about the Planet Earth and its relationship to the Sun and Moon. We will also learn about the other planets and about the galaxy. On Wednesday 8th, we have an exciting visit in school from the Wonder Dome Planetarium!


Times Tables

Your child will be tested every Friday on a Times Table.

We will endeavor to give the child all the resources necessary to help them learn the Times Table.

PE and Swimming

Monday Swimming Year 5 only.

Tuesday PE Year 5/6.

Thursday PE Year 6 only.




In year 5 and 6 we feel that homework is important as it prepares the children for secondary school. We would appreciate your support in this matter.


On Tuesdays: Spellings, Maths and English work will be handed out with the expectation that it will be completed for Friday morning. If it is not complete then your child will be asked to stay in Friday morning and lunchtime if necessary to complete it to the expected standard.


Reading: Children are encouraged to take their book home regularly and read it at least three times per week. In Year 5 and 6 it is not expected that they read aloud to an adult but if you know they have read at home, can we please ask that you sign their reading record.


Please pop in to see me, or contact the office if you have any queries.
