Year 5/6

Miss Hills

Things to remember:  Our PE days are currently Tuesdays & Wednesdays. Homework is set on a Friday and due the following Wednesday. All children need to have pumps with them in school.

Welcome to our class blog! 

For Year 5, this year marks the move for children from lower to upper Key Stage 2. It is an exciting and challenging year for your children. The essence of this year is to provide them with many opportunities to gain in independence and to seek out and accept greater responsibility.

For Year 6, this year is the children’s final year at St Nicholas’ and is the time when we prepare for transition to high school. This year is packed with exciting and challenging opportunities where we strive to develop the children’s independence and hand over greater responsibility.

Here you can take a look at all the fantastic things we have been doing throughout the year. Below, you will also find copies of children's termly topic leaflets, homework and spelling lists as well as links to key learning resources for the children to use outside of school.


 Pupil Voice

The children pictured above are part of our various pupil voice groups that take place around school. They are either: Eco-warriors, E-Team members, Librarians, School Councilors, Mini Vinnies or Sports Leaders.
