Year 5/6 - Mrs S. Smith and Mr R. Gallop


Welcome to Harriers class. Mrs Smith is our class teacher on a Monday and Tuesday and Mr Gallop is our teacher on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Mrs Francis and Mrs Younger are also in our class during the week. 

For the Spring Term our topic will be ‘Read all about it’ which will focus on geography such as extreme weather and natural disasters.  We will look at how this is reported in the news. We will start the topic by looking at climate and biomes.   During the term we will learn about different disasters and create our own written and video news reports.  We will look at energy sources and consider how we can make our energy use greener. In D&T will be making our own renewable energy sources such as wind turbines and solar panels.  

This term our PE days are Wednesday and Friday however it is useful to keep kits in school at all times as P.E lessons may change due to weather and school commitments. 

Homework will be set at the start of the term and children can hand in their completed homework each week or at the end of the term.  You can support us by listening to your child read regularly and helping them learn their times tables. Children will receive rewards for completed homework and if an adult signs their link book to let us know they have read at home.
