Year 5/6 - Mr Rodger



Memorial Sacrifice is the topic we are learning at the moment. We will look at the Jewish festival of Passover and how this links to the Last Supper. 


Our liturgy this term is on the 21st March. Please come and join us.


During Lent we are encouraged to Give, Fast and Pray. We will be raising funds for the Zimbabwean charity Mavambo, who Fr Richard, will be visiting in April. Please give what you can to help this worthy cause.

Science Week


The children did a fantastic job during Science Week, taking part in a range of scientific activities.

We had a visit from animal specialist, Ranger Russ.



In maths the children had to explore ways of making a nutritional meal.

This term the Year 6 children will be readying themselves for the SATs by practising past-paper questions. 

Our class novel is Under the Hawthorn Tree.

The children will continue to develop their writing skills by carrying out weekly extended writing tasks. They will also be developing their comprehension skills by analysing language use and making inferences about author intention. Please support your child in completing any set work and ensuring they are working on their writing targets.

The children will be continuing to consolidate their arithmetic skills and develop their reasoning and problem solving skills through investigations and practical activities. There will be opportunities for the children to work in groups to compete against their classmates (for prizes), as well as competing against each other. As always, please support your child as much as possible with their work and encourage them to use Mathletics to complete their homework, which is set on a Wednesday. If you have any problems using Mathletics at home,

please notify Mr Rodger.
