Welcome to the first blog post from 5SW!
hope that all your children have come home feeling positive about being in the
class and confident that they will learn and do well. I certainly
feel that way and have enjoyed my first week with your children.
few pieces of information that you will need:
Library day is on a Tuesday.
PE is on Thursdays.
Homework is given on a Friday and is due
the following Thursday. Homework pages and spellings will be written
in the planner.
Planners should be kept in school bags and
should be used both at home and school. Please make sure that
you/your child records in their planner when they have read their reading book
and also please make use of it to write me any notes or comments that you wish
to share – otherwise catch me on the playground after school or any other time
that you can manage!
Uniform – Please remember to stick to
recommended uniform items and please name – this class seem quite good at this,
so well done!
class in English, as I am sure you will have heard, we are studying Macbeth by
William Shakespeare. We are doing lots of activities inspired by
this play, drama, reading and writing.
maths we are currently working on place value and how to read and write numbers
to 1 million – any practice on this at home would be good.
the next two weeks we will be taking part in their arts fortnight with Mrs
Johnston and Mrs Lynch, the celebration will be on the 20th
September – so put that in your diaries.

your child will bring home a knowledge organiser with basic
information/vocabulary about Macbeth. This is supposed
to be of help for your child to become familiar with some basic facts.
I will send the year 5/6 spelling list home, children have until the end of
year 6 to learn these words but it is great to get a head start.
five team have organised our first trip to Temple Newsam for Wednesday 18th September and your child should have brought
home a letter about this today. Please go
onto Parent Pay to give permission/pay for this. The year 5 classes went
