Holly - Year 5 2020 - 2021

Mr Newman

Welcome to Holly's class page!


Having previously taught this class, I am so excited to be teaching them again in Year 5 this year! Mrs Gold (Monday-Thursday morning) and Miss Cooke will also be working in Year 5, supporting the learning of the children. Mr Ellinson will be teaching the children Science and French on Wednesday afternoons.

 

Reading

 

Regular reading continues to remain a vital skill for developing your child’s learning in all areas of the curriculum. Children are expected to read to an adult at home four times a week and their reading records signed and brought into school each day. Although many will now approach reading with confidence and enthusiasm, it is important that you ask your child lots of questions about their reading to progress comprehension skills and focus.

 

Homework

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and must be completed by the following Tuesday. Homework will be based on the learning of Maths or English from the previous week.

Homework will now be set online using Class Dojo. Please ensure that you and your child are connected to Holly Class. Children will need to sign in via their student connection to allow them to complete the homework set. Information regarding this will be sent out during the first week of term.

Spellings will also be provided weekly for your child to practise for a test on the following Tuesday.

 

Physical Education

 

PE will be taught on a Tuesday and a Thursday during this half term.  Due to the current the situation, children will be expected to arrive in their PE kit and remain in kit throughout the day. Please make sure that your child’s PE kit weather appropriate.

 

If you have any questions, queries or problems please do not hesitate to contact me on Class Dojo or speak to a member of the office.

 

Here is to a fantastic, joyful, and productive academic year!

 

Mr Newman 😊
