Welcome to Class 5Enter text...
Mrs Southward will be working with the class Mondays- Thursdays. The super Mrs Jones will be teaching on Fridays and Wednesday afternoons covering my PPA.
We do PE on Tuesdays and Fridays for this half term. We will be trying to run the Golden Mile during the week. Please ensure your child has trainers in school everyday.
We do stickers and Emojis as our reward system in class. When the children have achieved 10 stickers, they will be given a treat from the treat box. Upon 20 stickers being achieved, the children will be allowed to come into school wearing their own clothes!
Homework is given out on Thursdays and must be handed in on Tuesdays. It will consist of a MyMaths activity/times tables learning/ additional online activity or paper task together with a SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) task in their CGP books or Spelling Shed, Reading also needs to continue at home. Children do not simply need to just read their school reading book. They can read a variety of material including programmes, magazines, children's newspapers, comics, non-fiction books, cookery books etc. Audio books are also an excellent resource. Please encourage your child to read both by themselves and to another older person. This should also be recorded in the reading diary. You can refer to the reading prompts notes which were given out on the first day of term and at parents' evening if you would like some pointers.
The topic for the first part of the Spring term is : Material World.
We will be investigating the uses of materials, how to classify and group them, characteristics of materials, testing properties and how materials are selected for their uses.
Our main text will be Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo.
