Spring 1 - Frozen Kingdoms


Our topic this term teaches children about the characteristics and features of polar regions, including the North and South Poles, and includes a detailed exploration of the environmental factors that shape and influence them.

Frozen Kingdoms workbook



Below are some routines and reminders to help each day go smoothly. 


Home/School Diary:

This book must be brought to and from school each day. It is vital for communication and will be used to record reading books, reading sessions, homework, activities and messages.  If there is a message from home, it is the child’s responsibility to bring it to the attention of the intended teacher/ TA.



It is expected that your child has an appropriate reading book with them for daily reading sessions.  This book can be from home or school.  Books can be changed whenever necessary and we encourage your child to be independent in changing and choosing books form the class or school library. However, guidance will be given when required. Children will read in a guided session weekly and may be heard individually too.



In preparation for secondary school, regularly completing homework is a good habit to develop. Year 6 pupils are expected to read daily and practise weekly maths and grammar skills. Talk homework is also required in preparation for extended pieces of writing in school.  For additional home learning use TT Rockstar, Education City, Oxford Reading Buddy and practical maths tasks.



Currently the children are allowed to attend school in their PE kit on the days that PE is taught - Tuesday and Friday this term.  If your child wears earrings please teach them to remove and replace theses themselves. 



Pupils may have a refillable, named water bottle for the classroom so that they can have access to drinking water throughout the day.  Please note that this is for water only and not juice.


Please use the school diary for messages or email me at the address below.  Thank you for your continued support.


Kind regards


Mrs Bennett, Mrs Gravil, Mrs Keetch and Mrs Blackah

Home Learning


All children have access to school online resources that can be used on a daily basis.  These include:

  • Education City
  • TT Rock Stars
  • Oxford Reading Buddy
  • Espresso Coding

Pupils are familiar with these resources and login details are in your child's reading diary.


Children are expected to read for at least 20 minutes per day and have accurate recall of times tables facts and spellings from the lists below.




This term maths and grammar homework will be given out on a Monday to be completed and handed in the following Monday.  Your child will receive Year 5 and Year 6 maths prompt books to be kept at home to support learning.  I am more than happy for children to ask me about questions they are unsure of before the due date.  Also, please help your child learn all multiplication facts to 12 x 12.
