Remember activities such as reading and practising times tables will also be hugely beneficial for your child.  When writing, can you please encourage your child to think carefully about using a wide range of punctuation and uplevelling their vocabulary – this has been a big focus in school this term, and they have made fantastic progress with this.  I have listed previously a range of websites which will help your child with their learning – they are full of good resources and will help to recap concepts.

Autumn Term 2018 Homework The Victorians Sheepstor Class

Curriculum Overview Autumn 2018 Victorian Britain

Summer Term 2018

Welcome to our traditionally hectic Summer Term!

This term our topic is “Britain Since 1948”. For more details see our topic web below:

Summer 2018 “Britain Since 1948”

In preparation for the Year 6 SAT testing in May, we are revising Year 5 and 6 spellings for 30 minutes daily. I will not be giving out weekly spellings to learn for the first half term as children are already practising for two and a half hours a week. If you (or your child!) would like additional weekly spellings to learn at home, please let me know – I’ll be happy to provide them!

We have a lot going on this term. Please ask children regularly for letters – many seem to get lost on the way home or left in bags. I will try to keep this page updated with letters and permission slips as well.

Forthcoming events:

Notre Dame Open Day – 25th April

Handball Tournament for Year 5 – 27th April  Primary Handball Parent Letter

Bank Holiday – 7th May

SATS week – 14th – 18th May


Please find Sam Waites’ presentation from Monday 8th January about our residential trip to Mountbatten attached. If you have any questions about the trip, please let me know and I’ll answer them (if I can!) or forward them to the relevant member of staff at Mountbatten.

Mountbatten School presentation 2018

Sex Ed Letter 2018

And happy New Year to you all!

Here you can find complete spelling lists for the first half of the Spring Term. These are useful for children who continually forget to take their sheets home! (You know who you are!)  Year 5 Spring 1 Spelling Lists   Year 6 Spring 1 Spelling Lists

Please find our new topic overview for Spring 2018 attached: Spring 2018 China

We’ll be studying Chinese geography, culture and the Chang dynasty as our topic. If you have any suggestions, ideas, personal experience, contacts or contributions to help us with our topic, they’d be very welcome!

Homework for this term will be sent shortly and posted here. For Year 6, I will be running a SATs revision club this term too, and would encourage all children to attend. Details to follow…


Dear Parents,

11.11.17. Thank you to everyone who attended the Parent Consultations this week. Sveral parents requested some additional materials to help the Year 6 children – I’ll add these over the next couple of weeks, starting with…

SPaG Activity Booklet

This is a very useful Grammar, Punctuation and Vocabulary guide with activities and quizzes covering all the elements of the Year 6 Spelling and Grammar (SPaG) test. It would be a great idea to download this and work through it in the months leading up to the SATs – it will reinforce everything the children are learning in class, as well as enriching their writing.

Just a couple of reminders for the Autumn term…

Uniform & PE Kit

There are still too many children forgetting PE kit for lessons on Wednesdays and Fridays. Please ensure children have PE kit in school for these days, and warm outer clothing for inclement weather.

Children in Sheepstor class are role models for the younger children in school, so please ensure children come to school in correct school uniform (including black school shoes) and school jumpers.

Homework and Spellings 

Thank you for helping the children complete some fantastic homework about WWII. We hope to have an open afternoon where the children can show and discuss their home learning later this term, so please encourage them to try some of the varied activities attached below.

There are still some children struggling with times tables. Knowledge of these is fundamental to making progress in maths so please help them practise these whenever possible – there are lots of games to secure these skills online ( is just one example!)

I am now using the valuable ‘Twinkl PlanIt’ spellings resource to generate the children’s weekly spellings. The spellings will still be handed out on a Monday, and all the spellings for the 2nd half of the Autumn Term are attached below:

Year 5 Autumn 2 Spellings   Year 6 Autumn 2 Spellings

The children will be tested weekly on a Monday. Please encourage the children to learn and practise their spellings regularly.

Year 6 children will additionally be given a weekly SATs-style maths test. It should take about 45 minutes to complete. Please let the children try this independently, but highlight areas where they are struggling so I can support them in school.

Statutory Spelling List for Years 5&6

These are the tricky spellings the children should be learning across the year, and trying to include in their written work wherever possible!

This half term we will be writing warning stories based on Pie Corbett’s story “The Caravan”. Our brilliant writers will be challenged to adapt the settings for their stories to wartime Britain. Check this page regularly to see how we get on! You can see the story map here

The Caravan

In History lessons we shall be looking at the rise to power of Adolf Hitler and writing a biography.

Thank you, as always, for your continued support.
