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.

Home Learning during School Closure due to Covid-19 Coronavirus

As a guideline, we recommend creating a timetable for your child to help you structure their day. Our suggestion would be to spend an hour on each of the key areas below.

Here are some suggested websites for you to access at home.

Y5/6 - Y5/6A, Y5/6B and Y5/6C Home Learning

Our Spring 1 Learning

Y5/6 studied colour wheels on Friday as part of their Gallery Rebels topic. This involved mixing tints and shades of colours as well as using pure colours to show how artists use these skills to add depth and detail to their paintings.

Our topic this term is 'Beast Creator'.

Our Autumn 2 Learning

As part of a lesson on Remembrance Day, Y5/6 completed some silhouette art. They created the sunsets by blending soft pastels and then drew a silhouette outline on to black card. Here are some of our amazing efforts!

Autumn 1 Term 2019/20


Our topic this term is 'Firedamp and Davey Lamps'.

Literacy: Balanced arguments and Descriptive writing.

Our Autumn 1 Learning

Two Ex-Miners came into school to share their experiences with the Y5/6 children.

As part of our topic we visited The Coal mining museum and even did some mining of our own - it was just for chocolate chips though!

As part of our Maths learning we began looking at the four operations. We looked at the different vocabulary relating to each operation before moving to focus on word problems. We then moved on to look at formal methods for multiplication and division.
