Year 5 & 6

Green Class at Yarmouth Primary – Years 5 and 6

Dear Parents/Carers

This year in Green Class, the staff team will consist of Miss Isaac (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) Mrs. Lewis (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs. Newton (HLTA). To ensure consistency and continuity, Mrs. Lewis and Miss Isaac will be meeting on Wednesday afternoons to plan and resource Green Class’s learning each week. During this time, Mrs. Newton will be leading the learning.


Children will be greeted in the playground at 8.40 a.m. and returned to parents at 3.00 p.m. each day. If your end of day routine changes, please notify the office.

Every child needs to bring a named water bottle to school so that they are able to drink frequently during the day. Healthy snacks can be brought for morning break times, such as fruit, rice cakes and cereal bars. Due to several children experiencing nut allergies, we kindly request that nut-based products are avoided.

P.E. will take place on a Monday afternoon and we ask that named P.E. kit is in school at all times. As well as this, we would appreciate school uniforms also being named.

We will be doing various reading activities every day but we encourage reading at home to complement their learning. Children are allowed to choose a book from library or select their own from home. In addition to this, we will have a class text that all of the children will access together. These books have been carefully chosen in line with Hampshire guidance and the comprehension questions/writing tasks will be adjusted to suit your child’s reading ability.

Spellings and maths homework will be provided on a weekly basis and this will be discussed in class so that expectations are clear. Maths will generally be set on a Thursday and collected on the following Wednesday and will focus on fluency of mental calculations in the first term. A spelling and grammar/comprehension task will be set on a Monday and collected on the following Monday.

A half-termly take-home task will be set in line with our topic and science theme. Details of this will be sent out to you and discussed with your children to ensure that they are clear with regards to the expectation.

If there is anything which concerns you regarding your child’s education or well-being, then please do not hesitate to speak to us in person, or by ‘phone. There will always be someone available to address any worries that you may have.

Please take the time to read our medium term plan, mission statements and home school agreement forms as these need to be signed and returned to school as soon as possible.

We would like to add that we are very excited about the year ahead and are very much looking forward to working with you and your children here at Yarmouth.

Yours sincerely

Green Class team
