Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Ash Class! We are a mixed Year 5 and 6 class. Mr Snelling is the class teacher and Mrs Wright is our teaching assistant. We also have other people in to teach some of our lessons. Mrs Crawley, our Art specialist, teaches us Art and helps us to produce some wonderful pieces of work to display around the school. Our PE coach, Mark, teaches some of our PE lessons throughout the year and we learn a huge amount from him. We have visiting music teachers with opportunities to learn the guitar with Mr Murphy and the piano with Alex.

The Year 6 children work towards their SATs in May and are supported in this throughout the year with things such as before and after school clubs, targeted revision work to do both in school and at home and general help and support to reduce any anxiety by learning good strategies and techniques to cope with the tests and be able to do their very best.  
Throughout the year, we work closely with the High Schools so that they can get to know the children who will be joining them when they leave at the end of Year 6. We take part in different activities at Sir John Leman High school which focus on many different areas of the curriculum including Maths challenges, exciting science practicals, languages afternoons and interesting computing tasks.

We have many sporting events that take place throughout the year. After school clubs are run by our PE coach every week and the focus changes every half term so there will be something for everyone! 

As a Year 5/6, the children have opportunities to take part in a variety of events throughout the year: Bikeability is for Year 6 children to learn how to ride their bike safely on the road with level 1 and level 2 worked towards, a residential trip to Aylmerton and a watersports trip allow the children to develop so many skills while having fun with their friends and Crucial Crew teaches the Year 6 about staying safe and we enjoy going every year.

Being the oldest children in the school, Year 5/6 can also take on more responsibility. They can become Junior Road Safety Officers and Play Leaders to help both the school and the wider community in different ways.  At Christmas, the children design, make and run games at the Christmas Fair to help raise money, often raising over £100 which is an incredible effort.
