Welcome to Year 5/6 Badger class. This term our main topic is Britain at War in which we will teach children about the causes, events and consequences of the First and Second World Wars, the influence of new inventions on warfare, how life in Great Britain was affected, and the legacy of the wars in the post-war period.


In Maths we will learn all about ratio; area, perimeter and volume; converting units of measure and angles as well as revising the KS2 content needed for the Year 6 SATS.

In Art and design we will be learning about environmental art looking at key artists and how they are championing sustainability through the work they produce.

In computing children will learn how to code and debug their own moving game that they will then share with their peers.

Finally, in our PE lessons with Mr Stopps on a Friday we will begin by playing a combination of striking and fielding games and then learn all about different athletic events in forest school we aim to learn all about the outdoors.

Information to remember


Please bring completed reading record in on a Friday. House points and other prizes will be rewarded for those who read at least three times a week and record it.


PE is on a Friday. Children will come to school in their PE kit. Please remember a black sweatshirt or hoodie as the majority of PE is outside.


Spellings will be set on Mondays in preparation for a test on Friday. Children will practice them in their spelling journals where they will also complete their spelling lessons. All spellings will be set on SpelingFrame.


Will be set on TT Rockstars . Children will have six days to complete their tasks and again prizes and house points will be rewarded for effort.

In order to support our Year 6 pupils through their upcoming KS2 SATS assessments, I have attached a selection of Easter revision activities that we would like the children to work on as revision activities. There is lots there so we encourage the children to do a little each day on areas they aren't too confident on in order to further enhance their understanding.
