Year 5/6S

ST THOMAS MORE

Hello and welcome to the Year 5/6S class page.

My name is Mrs Fletcher and I am the class teacher for the rest of this academic year. We are extremely lucky to have Mrs Harrison working with us to support the children's learning journey.

It is a very exciting year as some of the children in our class have never worked alongside each other before but I know we are going to make a great team and have lots of fun!

-------------------------

Our PE lessons will take place on a Wednesday afternoon so the children may come to school dressed ready for PE on that day. Please take note we are entering winter months and some of their lessons will be outside so the children will need appropriate footwear and clothing.

-------------------------

Homework will be sent home on a Monday and should return to school on Friday.

This year the children in Year 5 and 6 will not have a reading record at home for parents to sign but instead will be recording their reading in school. We ask that children read every night at home and we will be monitoring this in school.

-------------------------

If you wish to contact me please ring the school office or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible:

Please can we remind you that we are a nut free school. Please do NOT send your child to school with anything that contains nuts, This includes products that say, 'May Contain Nuts'. Your child will not be able to eat any of these products on the school premises.

-------------------------

Please keep visiting our page regularly for more updates and key information and also to see what the children have been up to in class!

Best wishes,

Miss Brough

CHOIR - CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE 2021

Mad Science!

 Today we had a visit from Naomi, a mad scientist!

She took us on a mission to Mars - exploring how we could steer a rocket and orbit the planet with some fun experiments along the way.

If enough children are interested in taking part, Naomi will also be running an after-school Mad Science club, starting in January.

Remembrance Day

Today Year 6 marked Remembrance Day by visiting the Cenotaph in Middleton. They led a beautiful, moving assembly to all who were at the remembrance garden, laid a wreath they had made and conducted 2 minutes silence with the upmost respect. They were an absolute credit to the school and we are so proud of them. 

Willow Weaving

This week in Year 5.6 we have been very lucky to have a wonderful visitor in to try some willow weaving. Throughout the three classes we have had a workshop in learning the skills to willow weave and have been creating leaves for our school tree which is located on our entrance fence. We then built the bark and placed together all the leaves to create a school growth tree and a crucifix! Make sure you look at our wonderful work when you visit school!

Music

Over the last few weeks in Music we have been working in groups to create our own piece of gamelan music by learning how to play ostinato, which is a continually repeated musical phrase or rhythm. We have been using glockenspiels, cow bells, chimes bars, triangles and drums to compose our own music piece.  We wore bali hats, sarongs and no shoes for our performance in honour of the traditional bali music.
