Welcome to Class 5
Class Teacher: Mrs Radford-Hyland and Mrs Jones.
Welcome to Class Five. We are a fun and enthusiastic class made up of 27 Year 5 children.
Most mornings, Year 5 concentrate on literacy and numeracy. In the afternoons, we cover our science and geography or history lessons as well as PE, RE, ICT and Music.
A typical week in Class 5 will look like this:
In Class 5 we work as a team. Here are the rules we have created together to enable our class to work happily and successfully together:
The children will undertake Wake and Shake every day they will need to be wearing their trainers. Their PE lessons will be delivered on both a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has tracksuit bottoms and a warm sweatshirt or school hoodie once the colder weather arrives later in the term as PE will continue to be taught outside.
Please help your child as much as you can at home. The children will have spellings to learn and maths or literacy homework set each week. An atlas and a dictionary at home are strongly recommended. The children may occasionally have additional homework tasks to complete linked to their afternoon lessons. Regular practising of times table facts would also be of great benefit to your child as well as listening to your child read as part of their daily reading.
Reading - Daily
Spellings - Tested weekly
Numeracy or Literacy - Homework given out on a Thursday to be returned the following Monday.
The children all have a reading record and a homework diary which need to be brought into school every day. The children should be recording in their reading record each time they read. Their spellings are recorded in a red book which again needs to come to school each day.
