Denbury Primary School



Welcome to Haytor Class! We are a Year 5/6 Class taught by Mrs Foxford and supported by Maz, Donna and Gavin.

AUTUMN TERM BEGINS Wednesday 5th September 2018!


"I am warrior!" A topic based on historical themes and the interactions between the Anglo-Saxons, Scots and Vikings.  A series of invasions?


  • Consider the values of Britishness
  • Immigration
  • The nature of treaties
  • Changes to democracy and national leadership
  • Migration and its role in the development of civilisations


Spellings are practised everyday in school and a learning check-up conducted at the end of the week.  This gives students the opportunity to explore meaning, look at word structure and importantly apply them in their writing.  


Block 1 will centre on the concept of place value for both years 5 and 6.  Learning involves fluency, reasoning and problem solving. The block overviews are shown below:


In our first sequence of the term we will study a non-fiction non-chronological text - A drove of bullocks.  As a class we will study the features that identify the text and make it 'successful'!  Working in a variety of contexts: imitating, innovating and finally inventing to write independently.


Authors who can choose our own idea; make choices for impact and to engage our readers; be confident to reread, revise and improve to do the best we can do! Write with purpose!


 What an amazing week at Heatree for our residential!  Our first residential with both Year 5 and 6 students and what a super week.  The children were involved in a number of activities: Tamakale Island (problem solving), low-level adventure (including the iconic mud scramble), archery, fencing, Wilderness Adventure on Dartmoor (weaselling), kayaking, high ropes and bushcraft.
