Welcome to Falcons Class

Year 5/6


Our class teacher is Mrs Clark. 

Mrs Crooks covers PPA on a Wednesday and is also in Falcons Class each morning, to support us with our learning.  Mrs Lamb also supports us within the classroom.



Children will be given a set of spellings to learn each week based on different spelling patterns.  Please help your child to learn their spellings each week. 



Year 6 have an excellent attitude to reading. The skill of reading is one of the most important we teach our children. It is a life skill that enables them to extend their concepts, gain information as the basis for other learning and to gain access to the magical world of fantasy. Just as children walk, talk and grow at different times, so their progression through the skills of reading will be at different rates. The key is for your child to feel positive about themselves as a reader right from the start. To become a fluent reader, your child needs to take on many skills and continue to practice these throughout their lives. Some are specific skills which can be taught, others relate to attitudes, and these they will gain from the adults around them.  We ask therefore that you read with your child at least 3 times a week.  Children will be supplied a reading book, however to keep them engaged feel free to read with them the books that interest them, those that take them to a world of make believe, that encourage them to dream and introduce them to the amazing vocabulary that surrounds them.



PE sessions will take place each Wednesday and Friday for the rest of the year.  Please ensure your child comes dressed in their PE kits on these days.  Swimming takes place on a Monday morning.  Please ensure your child has their swimming kit on these days.


Snack & Water

Children are able to bring in their own snack for playtime.  This can be a cereal/breakfast bar (please no sugary cereal bars), fruit or veg.  We would really like to encourage children to bring in their own water bottles each day.  This ensures that they are able to have a drink regularly throughout the day.  Please ensure the bottle is clearly labelled with your child's name.





If you have any queries, please feel free to contact me on s.clark@carletongreen.lancs.sch.uk
