This term we are working on:-



Evolution and Inheritance!


This half term we have a Science focus. We will investigate the scientific concepts and our understanding of inheritance and adaptation. We will be learning about inherited and acquired characteristics, as well as the key ideas of the theory of evolution and how humans have evolved. 



Our PE lessons will be on Tuesday and Thursday

Please leave your PE Kit in school ALL WEEK!


Home learning


Each week you will be expected to complete; Reading, spelling and either a maths, topic or English activity. Spellings will be given and rules taught during the following week, you will be expected to have a go at working out the rule! In term six you will be working independently on the statutory spelling list for Year five and six. Any maths activity will be to reinforce your learning of that week also. Home learning is set on a Friday and needs to be handed in the following Wednesday.


There is a weekly Steady Eddy newsletter with up to date news items as well as all the dates you need to be aware of. There is also Class Dojo that can be used for updating you when things may change, make sure you have your login details!


A few reminders:

  • All uniform should be clearly labelled with names
  • Water in a clear bottle is actively encouraged, the classroom is very warm
  • Targets for both Maths and English are ongoing


You can get in touch with us in the usual ways such as phoning the school office or popping in before and after school.  The class email is
