Class 5/6 L
Welcome to the year five/six L class page!
We hope you have had a lovely Christmas filled with family, food and friends.
Your teacher this year will be myself, Miss Lord.
Your teaching assistant will be Mrs Bellerby.
Let’s get ready for a great half term!
Our PE days this year will change slightly.
For year five, their PE days will be: Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning.
For year six, their PE day will be: Tuesday afternoon.
PE kit is compulsory on these days; this will be monitored throughout the year.
Year six will increase to two PE sessions a week during the Summer term.
Homework this term:
Each week the children will be expected to:
1) Complete a piece of English and Maths homework related to the work they have been doing in class.
2) Log on to Times Tables Rocks Stars at least 3 times per week. If they do not have access to the internet, they can take a worksheet from class.
3) Complete their spelling homework. This will be given out every Friday and due in for the following Wednesday.
4) Read at least 3 times a week . The children have a list of comprehension question stems in the front of their reading record. In order to help your child develop their understanding of the text, please try to ask a few of these questions each time you hear them read. Please sign their reading record each time they read. Reading books and reading records should be brought to school each day and this will be monitored everyday.
5) The children will now be given a piece of values homework at certain learning together sessions. These will normally have a discussion focus and they will be required to share what they have produced in class.
If they are unsure on any pieces of homework, I will be available for support at all times.
Learning together will be taking place during our extended learning together sessions. A text will be sent home to notify you of these dates.
In terms of our classroom environment, to promote a positive learning attitude, we have embarked on a journey to make the classroom a homely and comforting place with neutral colours and personal touches for the children. There is a lot of research that supports the idea that when children feel comfortable and at home, it promotes a more positive learning attitude. Please could your children bring in framed photographs from home that they would like to have on display in school.

Miss Lord and the year five/six L team!
