Year 5/6

Welcome to Upper School

Hello! We are Mrs Conway, Mrs Lloyd, Miss Rodd and Mr Ruffett and we are the upper school team! We enjoy working in a small school which has a specialist focus on the junior ages. We are a team who focus on continuing to raise standards and the independence of students. This will help to ensure that our current cohort have the best preparation for the SATs as well as helping prepare the children for secondary school.  

 

Homework in Year 5 and 6 

This year KS2 homework will consist of Maths and Grammar or English which will be handed out on Friday every week and due back on Thursday. We also expect children to be reading daily to and adult.

We also encourage children to log on to Times Table Rockstars regularly using their login at: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/1719

If homework is not handed in your child will have the opportunity to hand it in first thing Friday morning as we do understand sometimes human error means we forget to bring it in despite having completed it! If it is not given in on the last chance of Friday morning children will be expected to do it during lunch time on Friday. If you have any concerns regarding homework please speak to your child’s teacher.  

PE 

PE takes place twice a week, we learn one activity for approximately 6 consecutive lessons then rotate onto a different activity. Please see below for when your child will be having PE each week. We are currently asking all children to come to school in their PE kit on these days. Any change to the below timetable will be instructed to your children by their class teacher.  

Week A 

Wednesday and Thursday

Week B 

Thursday and Friday

Please ensure that children can take their jewellery out and they will need to tie their hair back in line with school policy.
