Happy New Year to you all.

We are moving on to focus on Africa as part of our Global Week project. The children are interested in animals and conservation, and in environmental protection, so we will be investigating some of these issues in the context of Africa, as well as the geography and some of the history and traditional tales connected with the continent.

We also have the whole school trip later in January to see Treasure Island at the New Vic, and we will be doing lots of creative writing connected to this splendid experience.

PE will continue on Mondays 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 am delighted with the amount of reading that most of the children are enjoying, 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. 

There will be an increase in expected homework for children in Year 6 during this term.This will include specific grammar and spelling work in addition to the usual mental maths practice and a writing task. I will hold a meeting for Year 6 parents to discuss the tests later in the term, and will be holding some after school sessions to help children with specific maths topics.

There will be the same amount of homework for Year 5 children in the class. Your child should continue to access the school website to record their homework each week. 

I will continue to 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!


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.

Mrs P Thomas
