Otter Class

Welcome to Otter Class!


Otter class is home to the oldest children at Stadhampton Primary school, those in year 5 and 6. Please read on to find out more about our class and what we will be learning about this year.


Helpful Reminders:



   Swimming. Reading journals/Homework due in.  





  Homework returned




  Spelling test (spellings are learned during the week in class) 

  Times Table test



Please ensure children have wellies and trainers in school at all times to guarantee they have weather-appropriate footwear and that they have PE kits in school every day in case of impromptu PE lessons. 


Thank you for your continued support.


Mrs Moore, Mrs Ellis and Mrs Shortman




This term our homework will focus on reading. In Otter class the expectation is that children read at home on a daily basis and at least four times a week with an adult.


Below are some documents about how we structure reading in Otter class, some suggested reading books and a homework grid with some ideas for activities based around reading at home.




The children will be split into spelling groups and learn their spellings each day at school. We will test their spelling knowledge on a Friday each week. Should you wish to practise these spellings at home I have attached a list for each spelling group which we will update each half term (below)
