Class 5 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Class 5!
A Message from Mrs Whalley
My name is Mrs Whalley and I am very excited to be teaching Class 5 this year. Welcome back to school at long last. I hope you have all stayed safe and been able to enjoy your summer. I am looking forward to seeing you all and I know we are going to have a great year!
Can we please remind you to ensure that all items of clothing are labelled with your child’s name, as well as lunch boxes and PE kits. Please can all children bring a bag to school every day to ensure all letters and spellings go home at the right time. Thank you!
In Class 5 we are reading:
Our story time book: The Witches by Roald Dahl
Our English hook: Into the Forest by Anthony Browne
PE is on Tuesday and Friday (both sessions with the sports coach)
Your child will read with an adult in school once a week. Please remind your child to bring their reading book into school every day. After sharing reading books at home, please sign reading records regularly. Please can children read more of their books at home. The texts are getting quite long for some children and we can only hear them read a couple of pages at a time. This is leading to children having their books for too long (and means they are not progressing as quickly as they should be). Thank you for your continued support with homework and reading. Reading is vital and has a massive impact on your child's learning.
For more detailed information on what we will be doing this half term please take a look at our class newsletter.

Times Table Rock Stars- this fantastic app aims to help the children become more fluent with recalling their multiplication facts. Children all have log in details and work is set by the teacher. Please see me if you are experiencing any difficulties
