Class Five - Mrs Atkinson
Information and Class Routines for Parents
All pupils should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. Pupils should practise their reading every night for at least 10 minutes supported by an adult. We would really appreciate parents/carers signing their child’s reading record and we encourage parents to make comments.
Weekly spellings are based on spelling rules and statutory words from the New Curriculum. Spellings to learn and practise will be given every Friday and should be returned the following Thursday. Pupils will be tested on the Friday. We have introduced across school a ‘Word of the Day’ activity. We ask parents to question and discuss this with their child/children. Find out its definition and the context it would be used in.
Number bonds and multiplication tables should be practised regularly. It is important that pupils are fluent in their number bonds and multiplication tables to enable them to efficiently carry out many other mathematical strategies. Please encourage your child/children to practise these every week and support them in the process. We will be particularly focusing on the 3x, 4x and 8x tables this year.
Pupils have swimming on Mondays and need to make sure all of their kit is in school. Swimming hats can be bought from the office for £1.
A healthy snack is available at playtime for all pupils, for a fee of 20p.
