Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2
5/6FR - Mrs Fenton & Mrs Rigby
5/6C - Mr Coulson
5/6G - Mr Greetham
Support Staff - Mrs Dudley, Miss Cowling & Mrs Rayner
Our first theme is 'Survivors'. We will read extraordinary real-life short stories about people who have survived extreme situations: 'The girl who fell from the sky', 'The miners who spent two weeks underground', 'The pilots who crashed inside a volcano'!! We will start the topic this week with some exciting outdoor activities. Our writing work will also link to the stories above. Our geography and art work will focus on Mountains.
PE will continue twice per week: Monday and Thursday for all UKS2.
For homework, please try to learn the key facts from the knowledge organiser below. Daily times table practise is also expected.
Also, please read to/with your child every day for ten minutes. We will also read to your child for ten minutes per day. Together this makes 20 minutes daily which makes for ultimate reading impact!
There are more homework suggestions at the bottom of this page.
Thank you for your continued support. It is always very much appreciated.

PE - ALL
PE - ALL
Maths/ Grammar homework day - ALL
Specific maths or grammar written homework will be sent home on a Friday. This will be in your child's homework book. It will be expected back in school by the following Tuesday.
Homework diaries (which are also reading records) must be brought to and from school every day. Please sign your child's homework diary every week.
We encourage children to practise their times tables and division facts for our weekly tests. Your child will bring their completed test home each week so you can see their score and practise any errors.
ALL children also have a times table Rockstars login which is great for practising at home. This can be accessed via a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Children may be given specific challenges to complete as required.
There are also some great times table games online including :
Spellings are learned on a 2 weekly basis. Spellings are practised in school regularly and will also be written into your child's homework diary so they can practise at home. The website below is also great for practising spellings at home. It can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or smart phone.
Year 5/6 should read a chapter book for at least fifteen minutes most nights (3 times a week minimum). We also encourage children in UKS2 to read classic children's novels. Reading to your child is also still very valuable - they aren't too old just yet - 10 minutes daily is perfect! Please make a note in your child's homework diary when you have read together.
Knowledge Organiser Homework
Our new knowledge organisers detail the learning which will take place in topic lessons. Please try and learn the key facts and vocabulary by heart.
