WELCOME toClass 5!
Hello and welcome to Class 5.
I hope you are all well.
I am looking forward to the second half of the Autumn term and I hope you are too!
We will be doing lots of fun things this term including learning about Diwali as well as doing lots of Christmas activities.
In Literacy we will be looking at features of instructions and learning all about bossy verbs! (Imperative verbs to give them their 'proper' name!)
In maths we will be looking at addition and subtraction and making sure we know our number bonds to 10 and 20.
General Information about Class 5
PE- PE will be on Friday's and children will need to come to school dressed in PE kit.
- White t-shirt
- Black joggers (shorts if it is warm)
- School Jumper/cardigan/sweatshirt
- Long hair tied back
- Earrings removed or covered with micropore
We will be going out onto the track a few times a week to complete as many laps as we can in 10 to 15 minutes. Please could you make sure that children have plimsolls in school at all times to change into in case their outdoor footwear is unsuitable for running. Thank you.
Children will read during the week but reading books will be changed on Friday's in order to sanitize any books. To minimize handling of reading diaries, they will be stamped when a child is heard read. Please keep last year’s reading diaries in children’s book bags so that we can continue to use them.
Homework will be given out on a Friday starting from 11th September and should be returned by the following Wednesday.
The spellings for this half term will be given out on 11th September and tests will take place on a Friday.
Year 2 SATs
Year 2 children take part in SATs assessments in May – these form only a small part of the ongoing assessments that take place in every class over the year and are nothing to worry about. You will receive children’s levels in their reports at the end of the year.
We are trying to minimise face to face contact for obvious reasons but please feel free to contact me on Class Dojo, if it is anything that is urgent or needs an immediate response please contact the office.
