Half a term completed already, and what an interesting time we have had, with a trip to the People's History Museum in Manchester and a visit from Esther McVey MP for Tatton, as part of our learning about the movement towards universal suffrage, as well as lots of fun in Science Week and a fantastic day at Daresbury Laboratory to learn about dark matter.

We will be moving on to our next history topic about the Vikings in Britain, and geography will look in more detail at the physical geography of the UK.

We have a dance project to complete and perform, a composition of a protest song to complete, and a trip to the cinema to see the splendid film 'The Queen of Katwe,' which will help us begin to focus on Africa before the new year.

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  IMost of the chidlren have made a great start to the reading challenge 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!


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.
