Year 5 and 6 2020 - 2021

Mrs Gallagher


Welcome back to all the children and families in Years 5 and 6! It’s so great to see you all in person again and we’re really impressed with how well the children have settled into school life and the changes we’ve had to make. We hope you all had a wonderful summer despite the challenges we currently face. We are very excited to share the children’s learning and progress over the coming school year.  Mrs Carter will continue to be the class teacher on a Monday and Tuesday and Mrs Gallagher will continue to be the class teacher on a Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 

Below is a summary of what the children will be learning over the coming term:


Our history work for this half-term will look at the First World War, followed by the Second World War in the second half-term. We will discuss the causes of the wars, as well as what conditions were like for those soldiers on the front-line.


We will take an in-depth look at the world’s biomes and the threats that they face. 


P.E will continue to be on Fridays. Please ensure that your child comes into school in their PE kit on a Friday.


We have some exciting new software to use in school over the next coming weeks. We will start with an E-safety focus before moving onto Coding.


Our artwork shall be focused on Collage and the work of Javaka Steptoe who was inspired by the artist Jean-Michal Basquiat.


This has been organised to ensure COVID safety. Year 5 are learning glockenspiel in the classroom with a music tutor whilst Year 6 learn a selection of brass in the hall with another tutor.


In the event of a further lockdown, Maths, Literacy, SPAG and Daily Activity will be updated on the tabs above. 

Please see the possible timetable below for year 5/6 learning at home.

We have some new class email addresses so that parents and carers can contact their child's class teacher whilst the school is temporarily closed. Please get in touch with any questions or thoughts about the resources and materials on the website, or any other queries. To get in touch with Mrs Carter or Mrs Gallagher, please email:

Kind Regards

Mrs Gallagher and Mrs Carter
