St Oscar Romero
Welcome to our Year 5/6H class page.
Mrs Read and I are really looking forward to working with you all and getting to know more about you over the next year. We'll keep this page up to date with key information and regular updates on our activities in school.
We are really happy that this year you will be able to enjoy some of the things we've missed over the past few years: enjoying break with friends from other Year 5/6 classes, celebrating assemblies together, hymn singing and even eating together in the hall!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch.
You can do so either via the school office or our class email address:
Times of Day
Children should arrive between 8.40am and 8.50am using the main entrance.
Year 5/6 classes will leave school at 3.15pm, via the front playground.
We strongly recommend that all children read for at least ten minutes each night. Doing so will develop both their reading and writing skills.
The children will be encouraged to develop more independence with changing their reading books and can do so on any day of the week. This year a class Reading Log will be kept in a folder in the classroom instead of a Reading Record.
If you would like to access additional online reading books, you can do so on the Oxford Owl website, using the following details:

Homework will be set each Monday and is due for return on Fridays.
Children should also access Spelling Shed, TTRS and Numbots for further independent work.
Spelling rules will be practised throughout the week, with a test taking place each Friday. The following site will also be used to support spelling with a weekly online activity which children can access at home: https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb
PE is timetabled for Monday afternoons. Children can wear their PE kit to school on this day of the week.
In addition, Year 5 children will visit Middleton Arena for a swimming lesson each Thursday morning until late January. They should come to school in their uniform, bringing their swimming kit with them.
Please remember that we do not allow nut products in school due to severe allergies. Please do not send your child to school with anything that contains nuts, this includes products labelled 'May Contain Nuts'. Your child will not be able to eat such products on the school premises and will be asked to take them home unopened.
During our PHSE lessons we have been learning all what it means to live in a diverse world. We have used natural resources outside to write words relating to DIVERSITY to develop our understanding of the word and its importance within society.
In science our topic is all about properties of materials.
Today the children had to compare the properties of materials.
The children planned and carried out an investigation. They were each given a question about materials. Here are some pictures of them working very hard.
