Hello and welcome,
We have hit the ground running and the learning behaviours in the year group are superb! The children are quizzing, the TT Rock Stars battles between the two classes have been intense and the weekly spelling tests are showing that the children’s spellings are improving. The knowledge of life as a Victorian child is deepening by the week.
Here is the key information that you need to know about Year Five:
We expect the children to have read at least five times each week and to be ready to quiz on Accelerated Reader at least every two weeks. In addition, we would like to see that the children have been practising their times tables on TT Rock Stars for up to three minutes, five times a week (a secure knowledge of tables and corresponding division facts support children throughout the maths curriculum).
New spelling patterns will be taught and tested on a Monday morning, but we're currently not sending these home due to COVID restrictions.
- PE is on a Tuesday afternoon with Miss Hemming. Children will need to come into school in full P.E. kit and as the autumn nights draw in, a warm tracksuit would be ideal. Please can you ensure that all items of clothing are labelled.
5S swim at Stafford Leisure Centre on a Wednesday afternoon until Christmas.
5A will be swimming for the entire spring term until Easter.
- Unfortunately, our planned visits to the Black Country Museum and Walton High School are not going ahead due to the COVID restrictions.
The best way to communicate with us is via our class email:
However, if you need to speak to us then you can catch us at the end of the day or, failing that, get in touch via the office and we can arrange a phone call (we are currently unable to have parents in school due to COVID restrictions.)
Thank you for your support.
Mr Sandy, Miss Anderson and Mrs Turton (Phase Leader)
