Buzzards - Year 5 and 6

Welcome to Buzzards Class!


Hello, my name is Mrs Sissons and I am Buzzards class teacher!


Our teaching assistants are Miss Tubby, Miss Treleaven and Mrs Olver.  Mrs McDowell is our PPA teacher and Mr. Jones teaches us P.E. on a Thursday.


This term we plan to be exploring the following elements and subjects:


Design Technology: 

Art & Design: Painting and Mixed Media - Artist Study

Science: Light and Shadow

R.E.: Muslim Beliefs


Computing: Using search engines.

PSHE/RSE: Dreams and Goals

MFL: Fruits & Animals

In English, we are reading 'The Explorer' and responding in a range of ways.

In maths, we are looking at angles and direction.


Homework will be set on a Friday and will include weekly spellings and an additional learning task. Spellings and K.I.R.F.S will need to be learnt weekly and the tasks completed and handed in by Wednesday of the following week at the latest.  

Additionally, children need to be reading frequently (ideally daily) and consolidating their mathematical skills on Times Table Rock Stars and Mathletics each week. Please have a look in the weekly home communication section for details of each week's homework.     


If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,


Mrs Sissons
