Welcome back to the start of the new school year.

I always love the beginning of the year - beautiful new books, new topics to start, books to share and experiences to be enjoyed, and lots of learning to be done.

I will be teaching the class along with Mrs Yates, who will teach maths, geography, PE, art and DT on Thursdays. Mrs Bradley will teach RE on Tuesday afternoons. Mrs Davis will be supporting the children in a range of interventions and small group work across the curriculum.

Our topics this term will include some work around the suffragettes, linked to UK Parliament Week later in the term, as well as a history topic about the Vikings in Britain, and geography will cover a short recap of UK geography, before a more detailed look at weather systems across the world.

PE will officially be on Monday and Thursdays, and we may also run on Fridays. School PE kit must be in school every day. If your child is using their kit at an after school sports event, please make sure that it is back in school the following day, as it is very disruptive to their and the class's learning if they are unable to participate. 

Challenge 40  I have challenged the children to read 40 books for pleasure this year, which can include books they read as guided reading texts as well as the class novels each term. I have a wide range of brilliant books for the children to borrow and read, and ask that you continue to encourage them to enjoy their reading every day. Please also encourage them to record reviews of good books on the class reading recommendations on the school website, to help inspire their friends.

Homework is given out on Fridays and needs to be handed in by Wednesday at the end of the school day. I find this gives families enough time to manage the demands of the homework without it impinging too much on family and out of school activities. It will generally include a page of mental maths practice and a writing task. Sometimes there will be a research task. Your child will need to access the school website to record their homework each week. Login details are in the front cover of their reading journal and homework book.

I post full details of each week's homework on the website, as well as sending it home in their homework books, so there is no reason for homework not to be completed on time.

I also use the school website blogs to share examples of excellent work. If you like what you see, a comment back is always very welcome, and very valuable feedback, especially to other children in the class!

Twitter

We will continue to tweet each day from the chalkface. You may see selected writing or other work is tweeted. If so, and you have a look at it, a 'like' is really valuable feedback for the children, or a comment back would also be great. @stannesclass5

If there are any issues, as always, please feel free to come in after school, or to email me. I will always endeavour to read emails overnight, but cannot guarantee to reply the same day.
