Year 5/6 Spring term 2023

Happy New Year! We are back to school and ready for our new, science-based topic:


Our Planet & Beyond

How has our understanding of space changed?

We will be learning all about space and space exploration through our science, history, geography and art & design lessons. 

Please see the downloads section to download our topic mind map and the knowledge organiser for this term. 


English: This term, we will be writing a set of instructions, inspired by our space topic. We will also be writing biographies of the women in NASA, inspired by the book 'Hidden Figures'.

Guided Reading: This term, we will be reading 'Odd and the Frost Giants' by Neil Gaiman. We will be working on our prediction, retrievel and inference skills.

Maths: Year 5 will be continuing their learning on multiplication and division before moving onto word problems, graphs and fractions. Year 6 will continue their learning on fractions and then we will look at percentages and decimals.

Science: In Science, we will be studying 'Earth and Space'. We will also learn about the topic of 'Light'.


Year 5/6 Staff:

We are very lucky to have the following staff to support and help the children in their learning:

Mrs Fields: Class Teacher. 

Mrs Stephenson, Mrs Shaw, Mrs Lycett, Miss Cank: We have a fantastic team of Teaching Assistants to support the children in their learning.

Mr Barton: Mr Barton will continue to teach P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon.

Mr Curtin: The children are very lucky to have Mr Curtin teaching them music every week. This will take place on Wednesday mornings.




P.E Sessions:

Y5/6 Foxes are very lucky to have Mr Barton teaching them PE. 

During the Spring Term, children will be coming in wearing their PE kits on Monday and Tuesday. 

Monday PM - P.E. with Mrs Fields

Tuesday PM - P.E. with Mr Barton


We are continuing our weekly brass lessons on a Wednesday morning with Mr Curtin. 

Homework Explained!

Weekly Spellings:

10 spellings will be given out on a Friday. These will be due in on the following Friday, ready for a spelling test in their group. 

Maths Homework:

This will also be handed out on a Friday and expected in on the following Friday. This might be a worksheet type activity or problem-solving question related to maths work they have been undertaking in class.  In addition, the children in Y5/6 class are expected to be regularly logging onto Mathletics and ideally achieving 10 gold bars (new activities) and / or 1,000 points per week – this equates to roughly 30 minutes work.

Homework Club:

We know how busy home life can often be and how hard it is to squeeze time into complete homework each week. We will run a weekly lunchtime homework club on a Thursday for Year 5/6 children who need extra time and/or support in completing their homework. This will run from 12.45 - 1.15pm.


Your child has an individual reading journal. Please can we encourage as much reading at home as possible and a comment written from you when you can. Thank you.
