Year 5 and Year 6

Summer Term in Year 5 and 6


In Year 5 and 6 we continue to nurture and nourish the seeds sown in the earlier years and start to benefit from the flourishing that independence brings. Pupils are encouraged to show our values in everything that we do.


Love of Self is shown through pride in our work and in our standards of dress and behaviour. Pupils eat a healthy snack at breaktimes and look after themselves by playing well together. Earlier this year, pupils completed 10 swimming sessions and the Year 6 have completed Level 1 and 2 of Bikeability. We complete an annual safety week, looking at first aid, road safety, rail safety and keeping safe on the internet. Through PSHE we will be thinking further about keeping safe online and maintaining friendships.


Love of Others is a key component in our KS2 classroom. We listen carefully to each other and show respect for each other's beliefs and opinions. The older children thrive on looking after the younger children in school and our Year 6 pupils take great pride in being House Captains and Sport's Ambassadors. We also help out in the office at lunchtimes. In October we enjoyed learning about ways in which we can show love of others in Black History Week. We also relish the opportunity to show Courageous Advocacy through our fundraising activities and social activism on promoting care for the environment and others who may be less fortunate than we are. Through PSHE lessons we celebrate difference. 


Love of God's World is very important to our class. We respect the environment by keeping our class tidy, not wasting resources and electricity. In the Autumn, we discussed Creation and Science in RE and have learnt about the variety of life on the planet through our Science lessons on evolution. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful setting for our school and we regularly turn to this for inspiration for our class work. We visited the deer park for a lovely afternoon of fun games and last term, a small group of children had the opportunity to visit Rushall Farm to support their individual learning needs.


Love of Life is fundamental to our learning in Year 5 and 6. We strive to instill a passion for learning in all subjects. Extra curricular pursuits are encouraged and celebrated. We aim to find joy in life and share our joy with each other. 


As a Church of England School, we show Love of God through daily acts of reflection and worship. Pupils are invited to participate in prayer and song. Pupils lead weekly acts of worship in our Key Stage Assembly and are invited to lead the school in prayer during our weekly Celebration Assembly. Our local Church is a beautiful place for us to visit and we enjoyed a recent visit at Easter for a lovely service with parents in attendance again. This term we are learning about Islam and thinking about how God is worshipped by Muslims.



 Our current topic is The Stone Age. We will base our English lessons, topic lessons, art, history and dance lessons on this and will be reading the book Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver to accompany our learning. 




Please take a look at our new term's Curriculum Web for all of the objectives we will be covering, including our termly vocabulary. 

We have a new timetable and new knowledge organisers and shared learning grids to link with our new topic.

A Few Reminders

P.E. kit should be brought to school each Monday and be taken home each Friday. This means that P.E. kit is in school every day. Timetabled P.E. in Year 5 & 6 is on Monday and Thursday but this is subject to change.


The correct P.E. kit is:

  • a school games polo shirt;
  • navy blue shorts;
  • trainers for outdoor games.
  • girls - remember to pack a pair of socks when you are wearing tights.
  • Tracksuit bottoms and top, preferably in plain dark colours (for cold weather only).
