Pupils will study a variety of different genres of writing. We will be working on practising weekly spellings from the Year 5/6 National Curriculum lists. Spellings to be practised will be sent home weekly. We will continue to reinforce and develop the use of good punctuation throughout all subjects


The children will take home individual books, which are at their individual reading level.  During their whole class reading lessons the children will read a variety of texts.  They will work at developing their ability to retrieve, summarise and infer information from the text as well as widening their vocabulary


We follow Power Maths at St James. The units we will be covering are outlined in the curriculum map.

n addition to this, we do rapid recall daily that focuses on a different statement each week based on what the children need to be able to recall quickly. They are tested on these every Friday. We also complete TTRockstars focusing weekly on different times table facts. Children will complete a 5 in 5 daily, to ensure they are fluent in number concepts.


Please read with your child daily if you can, if not at least 3 times a week.
Make sure your child reads on Myon and completes reading quizzes on Accelerated Reader
Please take time to help your child learn the spellings that are set weekly.
Make sure your child completes their weekly homework tasks in the pink homework book.
Please encourage your child to complete TT rock stars daily.
