Welcome to our new Year Five class 2017. Everyone has settled in really well and are already getting used to the new regimes and expectations in top juniors.
We have streamed the children in Years 4 to 6 for daily Mathematics sessions and are reviewing this on a weekly basis, therefore groups will be changing at various points in the future.
In the first week of term I sent spellings home. I have typed the lists up and these are recorded in their spelling journals along with various spelling strategies. The tests are every Friday and specific spelling sessions are timetabled daily. Some of the children have been telling me how helpful their parents are and how they are being supported at home. Thank you for all the time and support you give to reinforce these crucial skills with your children.
Everyone also takes home a Reading Record book to record what they are reading at home as well as in school. These will be used at some time to recommend books for their class peers to read. Times tables are in the back of their homework diaries for learning at home too.
Photos and updates will be appearing over the course of the term. For the time being, I have attached timetables and outline plans for the work we will be covering this term.
