After a long summer holiday, the children have integrated themselves as Year Five and Six students magnificently and are ready to face the challenges ahead! We have been working tirelessly since the first day back and intend to continue this throughout the course of the year.
The children have been focusing on recycling this week and have focused on the question 'Do oceans matter?' which has brought up some very interesting ideas regarding the impact it would have on the rest of the world if we didn't have any oceans.
This year homework will consist of weekly spellings taken from the year five and six curriculum, timetables to learn and weekly reading to do. The spellings and timetables which need to be learnt for the following Friday will be recorded in homework diaries. The children will also be given a 50 things to do before they leave Year 5 or 6, which I would like them to do and date when they have completed one of the tasks. These can be done independently, with friends or family! It's important the children have the time to relax and enjoy themselves!
Over the course of the year, I will be keeping this page up to date with any important news/information that concerns your child in our class, so it is vitally important that you keep a close eye on our class page. If there are any queries or concerns that you may have over the course of the year, please use the homework diary to get in touch and I will reply ASAP.
Mr Guest, Mrs Biddle and Mrs Batley.
