Welcome to Year 5 & 6
In Year 5/6 there are twelve members of staff working in the area. They are Miss Foster, Mr Ormerod, Mrs Boag, Mrs Hogarth, Mrs Holmes, Mrs Westwood, Mr Ahmed, Mrs Tokarski, Mr Easton and Mr Granger.
Every Tuesday and Friday your child will need to wear their PE kits in school, which is a pair of trainers, a pair of shorts and a T shirt. Ordinarily the children would bring a PE kit to school, but during this period of Covid-19 we thought that it was essential the children were coming to school ready, rather than getting changed in changing rooms at school. Please can you ensure your child has the necessary kit and if they require an inhaler that they have it with them.
On Tuesdays, your child will receive their English homework which is due in on Wednesday. On Wednesday they will receive Maths homework which is due in on Thursday. On a Friday they will receive both English and Maths homework which is due in the following Monday. Miss Foster gives out spellings on Monday for a test on Friday, and Mrs Unthank gives hers out after she tests on a Friday. It is important that your child completes the homework set as it supports the work that they do in class. Please contact any of the teaching staff if there are any problems with the homework that has been set. To ensure that your child makes good progress it is important that they read regularly at home and an adult signs their reading record. Children's regular reading is rewarded as they move along the reading display in the hall.
