General Information

Upper Key Stage 2 is made up of Years 5 and 6. In Year 5/6 we have three mixed age classes. Miss Smithson is the Year 5/6 Manager. Mr Simeson and Miss Brierley also have a class. In a morning Year 5 and 6 children are split into  ability groups for English and Maths, covered by the previously named teachers and Mr Norris and Mrs Smith.  Mrs Yates, Mrs Stead, Mr Grist support in Year 5/6.

In the afternoons children are in their mixed age classes. Children are collected from the top playground by their class teacher each morning. If you need to speak to the teacher please use this time to arrange an appointment - the start of the day is often not the best time as the staff need to register their class.

All children in Year 5/6 are expected to have their reading record signed by an adult at least twice a week. This is the minimum, if this doesn't happen children will be asked to do additional reading in school. Children are also set weekly times tables. Year 6 will also be set English and Maths revision homework from their books which are provided by school. If homework is not completed children are asked to do it in their break or lunch times.  Please also check our new weekly newsletter for talk homework topics you may wish to discuss with your child. If you have any questions regarding homework please don't hesitate to contact your child's class or group teacher or read the new homework policy.
