We follow a Mastery approach to maths and during the course of this academic year the children will cover the relevant curriculum for their year group.  The links below provide a break down of coverage for this academic year for children in year 5 and children in year 6; please be aware that this may be adapted following assessment for learning within lessons.

This term we will be working on fictional stories leading up to and interlinking with our topic of the Industrial Revolution.  We will also be covering poetry, persuasive writing and playscripts during the course of the term.  SPAG lessons will continue to be integrated at appropriate points throughout the units of work. 


As a class we will be taking part in whole class guided reading sessions.  In addition to this, please can all children read regularly at home recording all their reading in their reading records. Please can reading records be in school daily, as we will continue to record reading with individual readers in school.


Year 5 children will be going to William Brookes for their PE on a Wednesday morning.  All information about this will be shared via parentmail.

Year 6 children will have PE on a Thursday, please can children come to school ‘PE ready’ wearing school PE Kit (black shorts, joggers or leggings, plain white or plain navy blue t-shirt and their school jumper/cardigan).  Trainers can only be worn to school on the relevant PE day.
