Welcome to the Year 5/6 page

Mrs Buckley is our teacher.


Homework will be given out on a Thursday and is due back in the following Tuesday. 

It will include reading and spelling as well as English and Maths activities based on the week’s learning. 

Please take time to look at the homework with your child to see how they are doing. If you do not have time to complete the homework at home with your child, they are invited to Homework club on a Monday 3.15 – 4pm.

Reading Books

Please try to hear your child read out loud at least 4 times a week and help them to improve their vocabulary and understanding.

Children must ensure that they bring their reading book into school each day and that their reading records are kept up to date and signed by parents.

Those children that read aloud at least 4 times a week will be rewarded on a Friday.


Weekly spelling will involve learning statutory Year 6 words and words from a taught spelling pattern. Children will be tested every Friday on these spellings.


Our class have PE every Wednesday afternoon. Therefore, please ensure the correct kits are in school. PE kits are also needed for some after school clubs.

We go swimming every Thursday and the children need their swimming kits and a swimming hat. If your child wants to wear goggles, please provide us with a short letter to give your permission. Because we walk to the swimming pool, the children will also need to bring a suitable coat into school on a Thursday.
