Our first three days back at school.

Welcome to the first blog post from 5SW!

I 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.

A 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!

In 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.

In 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.

For 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.

On Monday 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.

Additionally, 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.

The year 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 last year and said it was a fabulous trip.

We also have West Yorkshire Playhouse coming in to work with us on a production of Macbeth, so that will be really exciting.

Have a great weekend.

Miss Wright
