Welcome to Class 5

Welcome to our new Class webpage!

After a challenging six months, we are so excited to be back at school!

We have all settled in well so far, so please find below some curriculum and class organisation information:

Our topic for this half term is Toys and through this we learn about the history of toys from the children’s own history to their grandparents and beyond. We will also be exploring the history of the teddy bear and making our own teddy bear shaped cushion sewing together felt and decorating eyes and features. We will explore the art of Andy Warhol and using his inspiration to create our own pop art in his style.


Through our RE lessons this term the pupils will be aware of the beauty of God’s World and understand the story of creation. We will hink about our responsibility to look after our World.

We will be doing P.E. on Wednesday. PE kits will be sent home with your child at the end of each half term to enable them to be washed thoroughly and are to be returned on the first day of the new term. Plain navy-blue jogging bottoms will be needed once the weather turns cooler as all PE will be outdoors.

Reading

Reading books will be changed on a Monday and Thursday. We will use Class Dojo to communicate comments about reading. When you read with your child at home, please message us on Class Dojo to let us know and we will give your child a Dojo point.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected in on the following Wednesday. At the front of the homework book you will find a grid with the date and title of the homework set for each week. Please only complete one page per week. We will shortly be sending you a password for Spelling Shed so your child can practise their spellings at home.

Please message the class teacher via Class Dojo if you have any queries. Please be aware that teachers will not necessarily respond straight away, if you email outside working hours.

Keeping Safe

Please remember that face coverings are required if you are on site.
If you are exempt, we have lanyards available.

Everyone must space out and observe social distancing both on and off site.

Please continue to follow our one-way, drop and go system.
