St Mary's Catholic Primary School

‘One family united in Christ to be the best we can be’

Class 5 (Year 6)

Welcome to Class Five. My name is Mrs Wilson and I teach Class Five which consists of pupils in Year 6. We have a share a wonderful teaching assistant with Class 4, Mr Green.


Our topic for this term is 'The Victorian's'.  In this unit, we learn about some some of the key events of the Victorian era, the changing powers of the monarchy, the lives of children and the industrial revolution. These are some key questions that we will be focusing on: 

1. What do you know about Queen Victoria?

2. Can you explain how the industrial revolution changed society?

3. What influence has the Victorian era had on the world today?

4. How can we use modern day technology to re-create designs from the past?



The curriculum in Class 5 will continue to develop children’s skills, knowledge and understanding. The core elements of their learning are centred around English, Maths, Science and RE. Excellent progress in these areas will provide a strong foundation for development in other areas.


Year 6 prepares our pupils for their continued journey in education. Pupils in each class will take on important new roles and responsibilities this year.  Each role allows pupils to gain confidence; develop their communication and listening skills; grow in maturity with increased responsibility and learn the importance of self-motivation.


We very much look forward to the year ahead and to working with parents/carers and our pupils to make this a very special year at St Mary's.


PE will be on a Tuesday and Friday. Please come to school in PE Uniform.

Homework is set on a Friday and returned on Thursday.


We use Seesaw to post learning that the children are completing in school. Seesaw is a communication platform for teaching and learning. All other communication should be sent via the school office for the attention of the staff member.
