Class 5 - Miss Millward
Class teacher: Miss Millward
8:40 am - Gates open
8:50 am - Start of day
PE- Thursday & Friday
The children need to come in their school PE kits on these days. Children must remove watches and jewellery for all PE sessions. They must be able to remove and replace earrings themselves as we cannot do this for them. Please encourage your child to leave earrings at home if they cannot do this themselves
Homework will be set on a daily basis and returned the following day. It should take a maximum of 30 minutes to complete but it is essential that it is completed and returned on time as it will often be needed for the next lesson. If homework is not completed and returned, children will be required to miss their playtime in order to catch up.
By year six we are trying to encourage independence in reading and a love of books. At year six the children will be heard to read less often as they are now at a standard where they have the ability and the skills to read independently. Any children we feel still need additional support will receive this within school. The children will be taught reading strategies during guided reading.
Our class book is Freedom' by Catherine Johnson'. This book has links to our writing lessons.
It is important that the children are encouraged both in school and at home to read for enjoyment. They can choose both fiction and non-fiction books and try different genres such as mystery, sci-fi, historical fiction, fantasy etc. The children are able to choose a book from our class library to read at home. They should read every day for at least 10 minutes - preferably more - and this should be recorded in their reading diary every night.
