Class Information

 

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday please ensure you have some sports trainers to bring to school on these days. You are able to leave these in school if you wish.

 Spelling test day is Fridays! We will compete in the school spelling battle – so remember to practice your spellings on Spelling Shed because we want to win!

 Homework will be uploaded on See Saw and new spellings will be available on Spelling Shed each Friday. We are busy learning our times tables so don’t forget to go on TT Rockstar. Also make sure you read to an adult each day.

 In Class 5 we love to READ! Please make sure you are taking your reading book home every day. You are able to change your book once you’ve finished it. Make sure you try to change it at least 3 times per week.  We also have access to EPIC! A fantastic app with a variety of online reading books for you to read. Please speak to Mrs Crossland to find out the class code.

Our topic this half term is Being a Victorian Child! We are learning all about what life was like for a child in the Victorian times. In science we are continuing learning all about plants and carrying out some plant investigations.  In art we are focussing on sculpture and making clay models.
