YEAR 5/6H

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:

year5.6H@stpetersrc.rochdale.sch.uk 

Class Information

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.            

Reading Books

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:

Children should also access Spelling Shed, TTRS and Numbots for further independent work.

 

Spellings

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 Lessons

PE is timetabled for Tuesday 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.

 

Nuts 

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.

CHOIR - CHRISTMAS PERFORMANCE 2021

CAFOD Christmas Presents 

This year the children have been playing a games of bingo each Friday to raise money for CAFOD. They decided to do this so that we could buy Christmas gifts for those in need with the money they raised.  Mrs Read and myself also agreed that instead of buying the children a gift we would contribute to the money they had raised - they reached a amazing amount of £110!This week they worked with their budget to choose which gifts they wanted to buy from the CAFOD list of gifts.  
We are so proud of their kindness, well done!

Christmas Party Day 2021

What a great afternoon we all had for Christmas Party. There was lots of singing, dancing, secret Santa and party food.
Mrs Read and myself had a lovely time with you all.  

Cop26

During this half term we have followed the COP26 meeting that took place in Glasgow. The children were very articulate in sharing their concerns and ideas about climate change. We then decided to write a letter to the Mayor of Manchester, Andy Burnham, to put forward all of our thoughts and ideas. This week we were lucky enough to receive a reply from him. The children were thrilled with their response.

Design Technology

   Our topic this half term has been: Where does our food come from? We have studied food miles and cultural foods. Over the last two weeks we have learnt about Mexican and German foods and made some of these dishes. The children learnt how to prepare food And surfaces in a hygienic manner and then enjoyed tasting their food.

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. 

Art/Sculpture Visitor

Today we had a lovely afternoon with an Artist called Christine, who is from the Art room, came to work with us. She is a Artist who works with willow. She explained how willow absorbs water which makes it flexible and then we had a go at weaving the willow to make leaves for the wonderful willow tree that is now on our school fence next to the car park. I’m sure you will agree it looks fabulous, the children are very proud of their work.

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. 

SCIENCE

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.
