Welcome to Class 5

We have 24 pupils in Y5.

 

Hello- I am Mrs Southward and I will be working with the class Mondays- Thursdays. The super Mrs Jones will be teaching on Fridays and Tuesday afternoons covering my PPA.

 little bit about me- this is my 4th year at High Legh Primary School. I have been in teaching a long time now.........The children will become used to my many stories as we go through the year. In my spare time I love to engage in exercise, running, walking and swimming, that's when I not running around after my own children and their sporting activities! In normal times, I like to travel.  I have become more of a reader and I particularly enjoy biographies, fiction and humourous books including children's stories too. 

Class life- We do PE on Mondays and Fridays for this half term. We will also try to do some running during the week. 

Homework may consist of a Maths activity/times tables learning/ additional online activity or paper task together with a SPAG (spelling, punctuation and grammar) task  Reading also needs to continue at home. Children do not  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 ideally 3 times p/w. This can be recorded in the reading diary.
