The Magnificent Stonehenge Class 

Welcome to Stonehenge Class


Year 5 and Year 6

A big hello from Stonehenge class. Our class teacher is Mrs Orr and our wonderful TA is Miss Coakley. We are always here to help and support our pupils and their families so if you have any concerns, please don't hesitate to come and talk to Mrs Orr. 


PE in the Spring Term 

The children will need to wear their PE kits to school every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. 



Our children have succeeded in  understanding and learning in all areas of our Maths curriculum. They have made us very proud with what they now know and understand. We have been investigating lots of Maths reasoning problems as well as brushing up on our arithmetic skills. This term, our Year 6 children have been focusing on fractions. They can add, subtract, multiply and divide fractions and can apply their knowledge to a range of fractions problems. In addition, they can convert between mixed numbers and improper fractions and they can successfully order and compare a range of fractions. Our Year 5 pupils have been learning all about multiples, factors, prime numbers and square and cube numbers. They have also been working out what happens to a number when you multiply or divide it by 10, 100, 1000.  We have also moved on to learning about decimals and percentages and we have successfully responding to lots of reasoning questions about percentages. 

We are now focusing on statistics, especially how to interpret line graphs and pie charts. Our Year 6 children are also excited to learn all about the concept of mean. 


Talk for Writing 



Our writing this term is based on the opening extract of Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian. We will be focusing on the relationship between Mister Tom and evacuee William Beech. The children will be using their dialogue toolkit to show how to successfully use dialogue in their narratives. Here are some examples of our amazing writing, showing how to successfully use dialogue.   


We have used dialogue to suggest how a character feels, thinks or what they are like. 

We have put the speaker before or after what is being said. 

We have added to the speech sandwich by adding in the listener's reaction. 

Here are examples of our suspense writing from last term. We like to highlight the toolkit features we have used. 

Class Text- Goodnight Mister Tom 


We are currently reading an amazing book.  It is one of my absolute favourites and we can't wait to find out what happens to William when he meets Mister Tom.
