Welcome to Class 5!
I am the class teacher, Mrs Sparkes, and the TAs in the class are Mr Bennett and Mrs Fine. We are looking forward to a successful and happy year with your child. Please introduce yourself to us if we have not met yet.
I will be telling you about the curriculum and expectations in Year Five, the start of the secondary school application procedure, the puberty part of our science curriculum and our residential trip to PGL.
Homework will be set each Monday (unless otherwise stated) to be handed in each Friday. Weekends are family time, time to get out. If your child is struggling with any of the homework then please let me know. All homework will be based on what we have been doing in class so should not be too hard. No tears at bedtime over it!
We will be swimming this term on Wednesdays and doing outdoor games on Thursdays. Please ensure that full PE kit is in school at all times, failure to do this will mean your child will not be able to take part in this lesson. Pupils may have a track suit if they wish to.
Please read as often as you can with/to your child, it makes a big difference to their success at school. Likewise as much times tables practice as possible too!
If you have any questions or information you wish me to know about please talk to the teachers on the gate in the morning, drop a note to the office or send it in with your child or catch me at the door at the end of the day.
