Your teacher is Miss Feetham and your teaching assistant is Mrs Booker.


We are really pleased with the way all of the children have settled in our class brilliantly and are not only a credit to our school but to you, their parents. We are looking forward to the rest of this year with them. We hope to see you all at our Y5/6 Curriculum Meeting on Tuesday 26th September 2017 at 3.05pm in the Y6 classroom. If you are unable to attend, please contact Miss Feetham to arrange a more convenient day and time.


P.E. days are Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure that your child has a white t-shirt, blue or black shorts or leggings, socks and trainers or black plimsolls, in a drawstring bag to remain on their peg in class for the half term.


Your child has already received their half termly project homework. They will receive weekly spellings and should read their school reading book for at least ten minutes every day to support their learning.






Our topic in Autumn One term is 'Who's out there?' We will be learning all about space and the solar system.


We are reading the story, Phoenix by S F Said. This is one of the best books we have ever read and we're really pleased to be sharing it with you. Each week, we read a new chapter together, clarify the meaning of new vocabulary, focus on a key reading skill eg inference or retrieval, practise answering comprehension style papers and share a non-fiction text linked to our learning. WE LOVE READING at Acres Hill!


In writing, we are writing descriptions, a short chapter, letter and a newspaper report, using the story of Phoenix as our inspiration. Check out our amazing writing on display in our classroom- we are using Y5 features, such as, relative clauses, modal verbs and dialogue to help convey the character and move the action on.


In maths, we are learning how to read, write and order numbers to at least one million, use place value to solve reasoning problems, add and subtract numbers with more than 4 digits using a formal written method and mentally calculate with increasingly large numbers.
