Welcome to year 5/6!
I am excited to be part of the year 5/6 team this year.
In our class, we have Mrs Hartley and Mrs Dawson every morning and one of them in the afternoons.
A fantastic role model :)
We have been estate agents!
We have researched what makes a good estate agent, looked at how they advertise their homes and the vocabulary they use.
We then designed our own dream house and had to really think about our writing to try and persuade people to buy it!
Well done to our winners:
RightMove Winner = Sam!
Burchell Edwards Winner = Mamie and runner up Seb!
Parents choice = Elijah and Quinn
Well done to you all :)
It is lovely to be back in the classroom and fantastic to see you all over the last few days!
All the children were brilliant at following our new rules to help keep us safe and worked and played so well together.
Can't wait to get back into the swing of things with you all - you are going to be an excellent team this year. Well done to you all for taking everything in your stride and being supportive and positive with each other.
Here are the class rules we came up with together:
Arrive: 9:45-9:55 - via the car park gate - children enter classroom via ramp and side entrance - straight into class
Pick up: 2:55pm
Only pencil cases, school book, diary, named water bottle and lunch boxes are permitted in school. Children may bring in their own sanitiser if they wish to. Nothing else to be bought in from home.
Please find below the timetable for this half term (subject to change if needed):
PE is on a Friday afternoon.
Children are to come into school wearing their PE kit.
Plain joggers or leggings, navy blue or white T-shirt, a plain hoodie/jacket and trainers will be needed - please note we will be doing PE outside so pumps are not appropriate.
Homework will be sent out every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
Homework will consist of maths and an English task (grammar or spellings) - the children will be able to work on this independently at home as it will be on something we have covered in class.
Spellings will be sent out every week to practise - we will do tests every half term, but not weekly tests. Please work with your child on any spellings they find tricky. Other spellings will also be covered in class.
Reading - If your child reads 20 times in a half term, they will receive a certificate and a FREE book!
Reading has to be recorded in their diaries and needs to be signed by an adult every week.
Diaries will be checked every Monday for the previous week.
X tables - the school continues to pay for TTRockstars: please encourage your children to play regularly to increase their fluency in all the times tables.
