Year 5/6 2019 - 2020
Welcome to the class page for Year 5/6
Here you can find out all about what we are learning and achieving in our lessons and around the school. Please keep popping back as we will keep the page updated with all the exciting things that we are involved in throughout the year!
Teaching the class are: Miss Gordon, Mrs Volynchook and Miss Williams
Children will be issued with passwords in the first week back so that they can access online homework, including:
- Spelling Shed
- Times Table Rockstars
- Reading plus - SCHOOL SITE CODE IS rpstann4
Previous passwords for these sites should still work before term begins if children wish to continue to access them.
Homework tasks will be set on these programmes on a Friday and are to be completed by the following Wednesday. The online programmes can be accessed on a PC, laptop, tablet/iPad or a smartphone.
Please click on the Homework tab at the top of the class page to find out what weekly homework has been set. You can also find a list of web links for each website.
We now have children signed up to the IDL programme too. This supports children in their English and reading. This can also be accessed outside of school. The children have been given their passwords for IDL.
Children should be reading at home daily. Children will move up our class reading chart when they have completed books and there will be a prize for the most books read!
P.E. is on Monday and Friday afternoons.
Children require a full P.E. kit. Monday lessons will be indoor PE and Friday's lessons will be outdoors. Please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit in school each week. We will send kits home at the end of each half term for them to be washed.
What is Year 5/6 Achieving This Term?
W/c 4th November 2019
What a week! With the sad news of the roof collapse, our children have made us so proud it what has been a very difficult and busy week! They have faced the difficulties of losing our wonderful classroom and the work we had completed before half term with such resilience, we cannot begin to tell you how proud we are of them!
For the time being, our temporary classroom (until the mobile classrooms have been installed near to the Nursery classroom and outdoor area) will be the staffroom and CASA room. Children who go to other classes for English and Maths will continue to do so, either working in the ICT suite or the learning space just outside the hall.

Thursday 10th October 2019 - World Mental Health Awareness Day
We marked this international awareness day by wearing yellow as well as attending an assembly with Mrs Gillespie to improve our own knowledge of mental health and why it is important to speak up and get help. In the afternoon, we talked about how communication is key to supporting people with mental health problems and played a game to realise the importance of communication!
