Upper Key Stage 2
Information for parents
Our classes are a straight Year 5 class: 7EW (Miss E Wood & Miss Kelly) and a split Year 5/6 class: 8JW (Miss J Watson & Mrs Iveson) and a straight Year 6 class: 9SW (Miss S Watson & Mrs Foston).
Currently, we are working very hard to become the best class role models we can be whilst fulfilling our roles as ambassadors for the school. We have lots of opportunities within our curriculum to develop our leadership skills, such as working with younger children within our school and the wider community. We have had lots of discussions about this in our circles.
We enjoy using a wide variety of class texts to enable us to discuss issues around friendship, fairness, equality, leadership and the impact our actions have on others.
We are trying really hard to develop our sense of responsibility in taking care of ourselves – please make sure you support us in being responsible for ensuring that we bring our PE kits at the start of every week.
Reading is very important all the way through school and in Year 5 and 6 the children are expected to take responsibility for their own home reading books. Please encourage your children to read each day and to remember to bring their home reading book into school.
In Year 6, we are focussing on preparing to show off everything we have learned in primary school in our SATs test later this year (May).This includes working on our resilience, independence and responsibility for our work and ourselves.
