Year 5/6 - Cypress

Year 5/6 - Cypress

Welcome to Cypress class with Miss Proctor and Mrs Gorvett. 

We are a mixed Year 5/6 class and all work together to grow, develop and achieve success and have fun.  In Cypress class, we like to encourage our children to be active, independent learners and prepare them ready for the challenges of Upper Key Stage 2.  

Key information  


PE takes place every Monday afternoon.  Due to current guidelines, on our PE day, pupils should attend school wearing their PE kit consisting of plain black or grey shorts, joggers or leggings, plain white t-shirt, school jumper and trainers.    


Swimming will recommence on Wednesdays for all of our class.  Our first session will be on 10th March. 

Read 4 the Stars  

All pupils are encouraged to read at least 4 times per week so that they can participate in the Read 4 the Stars reward scheme.  Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading record so that their reading each week will count towards it.   

Homework and Spellings 

Spellings will be set on Monday of each week and will be tested the following Monday.  Homework will be set on Purple Mash weekly every Friday. This should be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.   

Keyboard lessons  

All Cypress pupils will continue learning to play the keyboard.  The keyboard lessons take place every Monday and will be delivered by Mr Richards. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me via ClassDojo.   

Thank you for your continued support.   

Miss Proctor and Mrs Gorvett
