How to contact the class teacher:
Homework is set on on a Friday and is due in the following Wednesday. A sticker on the inside of the front cover will show you the homework your child should be completing. Maths, timetables and spelling homework will be sent every week. SPaG and Comprehension homework will alternate weekly. Children will also be expected to read five times per week and practice their mental maths targets.
Please encourage your child to check their timetable regularly (found above) as they should be well organised. Support us with encouraging independence and good organisational skills, which will be beneficial in Year 5/6. We expect children to be wearing the approved school uniform and P.E kit. PE kit should be worn to school on PE days.
Year 5 have indoor PE on a Monday and outdoor PE on a Tuesday.
The National Railway Museum
This half term we had a wonderful trip to the National Railway Museum in York. We had so much fun learning about the history of trains and how they changed the fantastic city. Luckily, we were also able to see the inside of a steam engine which really helped us in our English as we are writing explanation texts on how a steam engine works.
A day in the life of Victorian school
As we came to the end of our Victorian topic, we were transported to 1841 and experienced life in a Victorian school! The children thoroughly enjoyed us being incredibly strict teachers although eventually decided that they wouldn’t have wanted to live in the Victorian era due to the severe punishments! They loved learning about pounds, shillings and pence and Victorian poetry and found writing with chalk and ‘slate’ a challenge! A fantastic day was had by all.
