Our Year 5/6 PE Day is Friday for an extended session.  Please ensure your child comes to school in their P.E kit. 



Reading homework will be a key focus for your child this year. Home work will be set on a Wednesday and is due in the following Wednesday.


Spellings will also form an important part of the children’s learning at home and we will send out spellings on Wednesday  to be learned for the test on the following Wednesday.


Mrs Forman's Maths group will receive their homework on a Tuesday evening to be handed in the following Tuesday. Miss Taylor's Maths group will be given their homework on a Friday to be handed in the following Friday.  

In addition the children have been given a properties of shape revision booklet which we would like the children to learn a copy of this can be found at the bottom of the page. 

Times tables

Your child will bring home a times table sheet (every Wednesday).  The children will be tested on these the following Wednesday and once they achieve 50 correct answers, they will then progress on to the next sheet (getting progressively more tricky!). This is a timed challenge - 3 minutes and for many it will take time to be able to master this.  We urge you to practice with your child at home so that they can make progress. 

Class essentials

I do encourage all the children to bring in a bottle of water for drinking during lessons. They can fill this in the classroom and they are stored next to our sink.

Please ensure that your children have separate indoor and outdoor shoes.

We use a reward system in school called Class Dojo these are online creatures that your child can personalize, and if your child follows school rules and routines and strives to do their best, they will receive Dojos through the week. Again you will receive an invite and you can log on to ‘Class Dojo’, where you can see one of the ways we give positive feedback.

We are also on Twitter, so watch out for our tweets! You can find us at @mcps_class6. We use twitter and the school website if we need to remind you of events such as home clothes days or if it is bad weather and the school has to shut. It’s worth logging on.
