Upper Key Stage Two (Years 5 & 6)

Welcome to the Upper key Stage Two Transition page. 

Upper Key Stage Two is made up of 3 mixed Year 5/6 classes. 

 

Team Magenta - Mr Warburton 

Team Violet - Miss Rogers

Team Amethyst - Mr Holcroft 

Other people who help us in Upper Key Stage Two are: Mrs Butler, Mrs Fisher and Miss Williams

The Upper Key Stage 2 phase leader is Mr Holcroft (UKS2 phase leader). If you have any queries of questions about transition in Year 5 & 6 send an email to the school email for the attention of Mr Holcroft or give him a quick ring in school. 

Moving up with our teams

Current Year 5 children will have the same teacher next year, with the same Year 5 team of children and the same class teacher. These children will simply become Year 6 children in September. 

 

Current Year 4 children will remain with the same Year 4 group of children and move to their new Year 5 classes. We cannot wait to see you in Year 5!

 

With celebrations and collective worships throughout the year, our three teams often come together. We all enjoy our playtimes and lunchtimes together too and work together as 3 teams. 

Key Stage Two- Helpful Photographs

Here are some photographs of key areas in Key Stage Two to help you and your child/children get to know the department. 

1. These are the 3 Key Stage Two classroom doors. This is where you collect children at the end of the school day. 

2. This is the Key Stage Two door - it's where Year 5 and 6 children come into school in the morning. This is nice and easy because it is the same door used in Year 4! Staff are always on the door to welcome you and children.

3. This is the Key Stage Two corridor where all 3 classes are. At the start of each day, class teachers will be waiting to say good morning. 

4. This is the Key Stage Two playground where we play at playtime and lunchtime. We have our very own adventure playground and at lunchtimes we often use the MUGA pitch.

5. Year 5 & 6 use the toilets under the stairs at the end of the corridor.

We couldn't have our usual information briefing sessions in school this year so we have attached our presentation for you below. We hope this provides you with a little more information about Years 5 and 6. There is also a helpful 'Things to remember' overview sheet. 

 

Making a positive start will go a long way towards having a great year - let's all aim for that! If once you have read through the information you would still appreciate some extra information, or feel there is anything you need to let us know, contact the school and we will work together.

How can I help prepare my child for September?

The main and most important way to help your child prepare for September is to devote time to their emotional well being. Talk positively to them about school and keep having FUN at home! A happy child will be ready to learn when we are back...this is vital.

 

Here is some optional information that you might find helpful. The SEND Transition page has more information.

Online Classes

There are lots of great opportunities online to help children take control of their own learning across all subjects. Clicking the images below will take you to Oak Academy and BBC Bitesize; both are excellent resources for if you would like to dip into some extra learning! Click here for instructions about how to access our Google Classroom for the first time. There is no expectation that these resources are accessed during the school holidays but they are readily available if you choose to use them.

Core skills

We make use of lots of online resources to progress in fundamental skills. Spelling Shed is available to build confidence with spellings; MyMaths has a range of activities to practise all Key Stage 2 subjects; TTRockstars is a brilliant way to stay sharp with times tables, which remain incredibly important as your child moves through their education. 

These resources are normally accessed during term time, so any use during the holidays is completely optional.
