Welcome to Year 5/6


The teachers in Year 5/6 are Mrs Gilbert in Aintree Class, Mr Browning in Ascot Class and both Mrs Quintin and Mrs Lobb in Exeter Class. We are lucky enough to be supported by a team of Teaching Assistants who either work with individual children or a range of groups across all three classes.  They are: Mrs Lauder, Mrs Wariner,  Mrs Kibble and Mrs Priest. 

Also part of the Year 5/6 team is Mrs Gingell (who teaches Aintree on Friday, Ascot every other Wednesday and French to all classes). In Maths the children may also be taught by Mrs Hawkins, Mrs Bellinger or Mrs Rawlings.


Topics for 2016/17:

Term 1: World War 2 – Will We Meet Again?

Term 2: Victorians – What the Dickens?

Term 3: Take One Picture

Term 4: Kensuke’s Kingdom – Where was it?

Term 5: America - How Wild Was the West?

Term 6:  Production theme – TBC!


In Term 5, the children in Year 6 will take the End of Key Stage 2 tests for Maths, Reading and Spelling, Punctuation & Grammar (Writing will be assessed throughout the year rather than in a final test).  This year the tests take place in the week beginning 8th May.

Term 6 will see the Year 5/6 children rehearse and perform their annual production.  This year’s production will be announced in Term 5!


Every year, in Term 2, the children in Year 6 take part in a week long residential visit which is always enjoyed by all!  This year we will be visiting Simonsbath again, where the children will enjoy a range of outdoor activities enabling the children to develop independence and learn new skills.  Information about this will be available in the near future.


At the end of the academic year, our Year 6 children move on to their chosen secondary school.  Most of our children move on to either:



                             Hardenhuish School                 Sheldon School              Abbeyfield School

                                 Hardenhuish                         Sheldon                          Abbeyfield
