Audition Pieces 

Auditions are on Friday 17th May. We will be learning the song below as a cast and anyone who wants to try out for a leading role will sing it to Ms Rutherford and Miss Bishop on their own. Anyone who would like to have a meatier speaking role needs to practise one of the speeches below. 

We are not looking for perfect, polished performances! We are looking for confidence and potential! Any questions please see Ms Rutherford. 


Speaking Parts


Term 5 

SATs Week

KS2 SATs will take place in Week 5 (w/c 13th May). The timetable is as follows 

Monday 13th May - English grammar, punctuation and spelling

Tuesday 14th May - English Reading Test

Wednesday 15th May - Mathematics Paper 1 – arithmetic

                                    -  Mathematics Paper 2 – reasoning

Thursday 16th May     - Mathematics Paper 3 – reasoning

All tests will start promptly once the children are settled at 9:10am.

Children are invited to come to our annual SATs Breakfast which allows them a chance to settle in, spend time with friends and eat loads of cereal and toast! This will run in the hall Monday - Thursday at 8am


In English we will be using a range of stimuli to create independent, short burst writing. We will start by looking at the fabulous mystery 'The Viewer' by Shaun Tan, and the Literacy Shed Short Film Alma. 


In reading we will link our activities 'The Viewer' and study a wide range of texts to boost our inference skills.

We will continue to explore books in class each week - and enjoy letters from Squirrel Bookin' too. 

Reading in English: A guide for learners


Across Term 5 we will be exploring angles, 2D and 3D shapes and their measurements. We will also be reviewing and consolidating key knowledge ready for their KS2 SATs. 

Maths planets will take place every Friday and the children will continue from where they finished in Year 5. Overviews are available on our webpage. Please try to practise maths facts 3 times a week

For more information visit our Maths Curriculum page to remind yourselves of our calculation policy.

Wider Curriculum



In our wider curriculum this term we will be looking at Science, Art, RE and PSHE. During 6R Camp week, 6B will be looking at D&T.  Click the above logos to view our pupil organisers for each subject.

How can you help at home?


Children are expected to read at home at least five times each week for fifteen minutes.  At least one of these times needs to be with an adult but please read more often with your child if you are able. Children are expected to write the date of the read, the book they are reading and the pages they have read in that day. Please ensure that you check and sign reading records each week. Reading records will be checked every Friday.

Reading comprehension question stems can be found here. 

A list of recommended reads for Y6 can be found here. 



This year, Year 6 will be following a new way of spelling. The premise of this is that spelling should be 'taught not caught'. We will be doing daily and weekly spelling sessions but will not be sending spelling lists home for weekly spelling tests. We recognise that this is different from previous years and will be different from other year groups, but we hope this new way of working will see great improvement in spelling!

Year 5/6 Statutory Word List



By Year 6, the children should be confident with all times table facts so constant practice at home will help to embed this. 

The children will be continuing with Maths Planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 5.  There are sample papers on the maths page of the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please encourage your child to practise their maths facts at least three times per week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than four weeks, then we will intervene at school.
