Welcome to Class 16S

Miss Sturdy

Miss Sturdy is the class teacher in Class 16

All the Year 5 and 6 classes work closely together to ensure your child receives the best possible learning experiences. We follow a two year cycle of planning with a wonderful, exciting range of topics and activities. We place a lot of importance on developing children's thinking skills and their ability to improve their own work, whilst giving them the basic skills from which they can begin to fully reach their potential.

Below is a brief outline of the topics we cover in Year 5 and 6. We would love it if you could talk to your child about their topic and find out more about what they've been learning.


Autumn Term


This term our topic is based on a book called 'Here We Are’.  The children will be leading the learning and exploring what makes our planet and how we live on it.


This term we will be covering a range of mathematical skills including: area and perimeter. We will also be developing and applying our maths and numeracy skills throughout other areas of the curriculum each week.


We will be looking at a variety of features this term. The children will be encouraged to form ideas of what types of writing will support the answering of their Big Questions for the book 'Here We Are'. The children will also focus on improving their reading and oracy skills through reading a variety of texts and presenting information to their peers.


P.E takes place every Monday and Thursday afternoon. Due to current COVID guidelines, your child must come to school in his/her PE kit and stay in their kit for the school day.


Within PPA sessions this term, the children will have opportunities to enrich their curriculum with a variety of activities.  This will include:

  • Sports with various sports coaches
  • Swimming
  • Drama with Vocalize
  • Modern Foreign Languages – French
  • A community project
  • Welsh
