Welcome to Class 5S!
This week's Stars of the Week!
Friday 4th December
I'm so glad that we're all back and settling in so well! It's so lovely to be back together and supporting each other in a new year!
This year, Miss Allen will be helping us out in Year 5 each day, Mrs Scutt will be around on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and Mr Jessop will be teaching you on Tuesday mornings.
Our school day will begin between 8:45am and 9am - you will come into school through the big playground and then the door nearest to the KS2 boys toilets. Don’t worry, Mrs Menary or myself will be on the big playground to welcome you!
Our day will end as usual at 3:20pm and your parents know that they’re to collect you from the big playground.
What you should bring:
You should only bring to school your coat, a packed lunch (if you don’t have school dinners), a named water bottle and a healthy snack of fresh fruit or vegetables. The water bottle must be taken home at the end of the day and washed thoroughly. This year, you will NOT be allowed to bring in any pencil case or bag from home. Everything you need for the school day will be in our classroom so don’t worry!
We will have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays so on these two days you should come to school in your outdoor PE kit (black/blue joggers, white t-shirt, school jumper and trainers) so that you do not need to get changed for the lesson.
Most of your homework will now be on Purple Mash. It is to be completed weekly and 'handed in' on Purple Mash just as you would be expected to hand in paper homework. All Purple Mash homework will be set on a Tuesday and needs to be completed and handed in by the following Monday evening.
You should now have a staged reading book from school which can be changes on Mondays and Fridays. You can also take an additional book of your choice home to read from the classroom or school library. Please remember to give any book to an adult when you have finished with it rather than putting it back.
In addition to your reading book, there will be a reading activity set on Purple Mash each week. You will have a chapter of a book to read and then a short quiz to complete.
You will spend the week in school working on a set of spellings and then, on Tuesday, you will be set the spelling 'quiz' activity where you drop the correct letters in the correct order for each spelling word we have learnt.
A grammar activity will be set each week, usually a game that will consolidate your previous grammar knowledge and understanding.
Each week you will be expected to play the Multiplication Game on Purple Mash, just like you were shown in Year 4. This will continue to develop your multiplication skills after such a long break.
During the Autumn term there will be no extra curricular clubs due to mixing of bubbles.
This term, we will be learning all about the Maya in our history lessons as well as mapping skills in Geography! Mr Murphy will be back to help us with some really fun and challenging PE lessons too!! It's going to be a great term!
