Dolphins - Year 5/6 C - Mrs Sedgwick


Mrs Sedgwick & Mrs Bush would like to welcome you to the Dolphins page. We look forward to getting to know you over this academic year and sharing our learning journey with you.

This is a very important academic year, when children work hard and have the opportunity to show and celebrate what they have learned. It is sad in many ways as it is the final year at primary school, but also exciting as the summer term is the gateway to new challenges at secondary school.

If you have any questions about your child's progress or learning, please do not hesitate to speak to Mrs Sedgwick or Mrs Bush - our door is always open!



As part of the Doncaster Stories project, every child in KS2 was gifted a Roald Dahl book. Here are some of our Y5/6 children with their copies.



Class Routine

Homework will be set each Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday.

Our PE day is every Wednesday - please bring both indoor and outdoor kits every week.

Reading - in our small class we try to listen to children read individually every day, however it is still extremely important for children to read at home. We therefore request that all children read every night - remember the more you read the more you learn!

Reading logs that have a parent's/grown-up's signature on will be rewarded with stickers, which can be swapped for rewards.
