Hello and welcome to Class 5!

Our Class Teacher is Mrs Tai and Mrs Garfitt teaches us sometimes too. Other adults who help in our class are Mrs Ali and Mrs Khan.

 We are looking forward to a fantastic year.

This year we have lots of fun and exciting things planned so please read the the curriculum Newsletters which will be given out each half term. These will explain briefly what we will be learning about in each subject.

Important Information:

All children have been set up with their new reading book.  We will review the level of books as we are aware that all the children are returning with different experiences of home learning during lockdown. Children will be expected to read at least three times a week and bring their book to school every day.

Homework will be set every Friday to be returned the following Friday.  This will be set on Purple mash and Eduaction city. Spellings rules will also be given and children will be expected to look up the definitions and use the words correctly in a sentence. Please support your child at home by listening to them read and discussing the different spelling rules, encouraging homework projects and allowing them time to complete maths and English homework.

Please could I request that all children wear their PE Kit on a Wednesday. Children may come in their PE kit and wear it all day. Outdoor PE kit is highly recommended as we will be using the outdoor space more so please make sure children wear their school jumper or cardigan.

Parents can message me on Class Dojo with any problems or concerns
