Welcome to Bamburgh Class page

Our Autumn Term topics are:

Comparing Materials and Investigating Changes (Science - Autumn 1)

Our class text for this term is The Explorer by Katherine Rundell. Using this text, we will be completing writing tasks across a range of genres.




Reading Records must be handed in and will be checked every Tuesday. Children should be reading every day and should be completing their reading record a minimum of twice a week.

SPaG homework and maths homework tasks will be set in homework books, to be handed in the following Tuesday.

 We will often mark homework together in class to help children gain a deeper understanding.


* Children have been given a Year 5 or Year 6 spelling booklet, which contains the weekly spellings for Autumn Term 1. They must complete the activities in the booklet each week, to help them to learn both the spelling and meaning of each word. Booklets will be checked on a Thursday. A spelling test will take place every Thursday morning.

* Reading comprehension homework will be sent home every Thursday (in reading comprehension books), to be handed in the following Thursday


Children will have PE every Monday morning with Mr Brown and PE most Friday mornings with Mrs Winter. Children must bring in both their indoor and outdoor PE kit.
