Sheeran Class Year 5/6


Sheeran Class

Our class mission statement: Sheeran class will work as a team, helping, encouraging and respecting others, ensuring we are strong role models for our fellow peers. We will always try our best, be resilient in the face of challenges and take responsibility for our own learning and behaviour.

Hello from Year 5 and 6 at Overthorpe Academy,

Myself, Miss Gledhill, Mrs O’Kell, Mrs Gamble and the class welcome you to our class web page. This year we are continuing to build on our skills in becoming independent and more resilient learners. As well as maths and literacy, we will cover a whole range of subjects focussed around our key topics of the year, including Coasts and Deep Seas, World War II and Cool Vibrations (we will be working hard as well as having lots of fun!).

We have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Also, some children will still be taking part in brass lessons on Wednesday morning.

The children will receive maths and literacy homework every Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday. The children should also try to read at home at least three times a week, remembering to bring their home reading record into school each day.

Feel assured that you can communicate with us at any time and you are always welcome to visit the school to discuss your child’s learning and wellbeing.

Kind regards,

Miss Barrett
