Year 5/6 - Abbey

Welcome to Year 5/6



Our Teacher is Mr. Funnell

Our Teaching Assistant is Mrs. McCarthy


Welcome to Abbey!


The children have settled in well and have made a fantastic start to the year. We have begun our English by looking at expanded noun phrases to describe. In reading, we are exploring an extract from Noel Langley’s The Land of Green Ginger. Children love his comedy character names; Sulkpot Ben Nagnag and Tintan Ping Foo!


In maths, we are exploring larger numbers, including millions. Children have completed their first 380 test of the year. Results will be sent once marked and collated. 


Swimming has begun on Tuesday afternoons. Please ensure children come prepared every week. PE kits should remain at school and don’t forget socks for girls who will be wearing tights as the weather cools. 

Curriulum meetings are scheduled for Tuesday 18th September. UKS2 will be 6:30pm. We will give further details about the year to come and expectations. 


Please feel free to contact me if you have any queries. See you all at the curriculum meeting. 


Mr Funnell
