Class 5

Spring 1 Week 3

It feels like his half term is going quickly.  Probably because we have come back and very quickly got back to the pace we had before Christmas.  Time truly does pass quickly when we're having fun!


First and foremost, PE will be on Monday this week so remember to wear your PE kit.  There will be no PE on Friday.  This is just for this week.  


Also on Monday, we will be looking at what friendship means to us and feeding those thoughts through for an assembly across our school group.  We will also have a visit from the Life Bus on Wednesday morning.  Activities will be undertaken in the classroom led by the Life Bus staff.


We will have our guitar lesson on Friday.  I hope you're practising at home!


Last week was RE week so, this week, we will be starting our new topic - 'Dig!'.  It should be an interesting one, especially with archaeological discoveries recently within the area and TV time being given over to them nationally!







    Expectations generally are:


    • Reading - at least 3 times per week.  It doesn't have to be all night.  A minimum of 10 minutes will do it.  Reading comprehension cards are available to be taken home - one per week - and the swap with another child the following week. 
    • Times table rock stars - keep your practice up so your speeds increase.  It's amazing how much time you can gain to work out maths questions when your recall of number facts is speedy and accurate.
    • SATs Companion - Year 6s only - you will have various tasks set on this platform to help you consolidate work done in class and to support your learning as you approach SATs which are due to take place next May.
    • Spellings - no lists to learn at home; just rules/investigations/practising in class.  Be on the lookout when reading for words which match the rule of the fortnight, your own 'focus five' and practise them to boost your knowledge and understanding.


    Year 6s: don't forget to go onto SATs Companion for your homework activities!  It will really help you recap and cement your knowledge across the Maths and English curriculum.   

    Here's to a great week!
