Gold

Welcome to Gold Class

Teacher: Miss Noble

We are years 5 and 6

 

 

Important information

 

PE

In Gold Class, we will have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday.

 

These are the days that the children can attend school in PE kits. Please make sure the children have appropriate clothing to be doing PE outdoors as they will be having their lessons outside as much as possible.

Please still have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

 

We will be going swimming in Autumn 2, after the October half term. All children are required to wear a swimming cap. No jewellery, including earrings, is allowed to be worn. Swimming is a statutory part of your child's education and they are required to attend. 

 

Homework and spellings:

 

Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings. This will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be brought back into school on a Wednesday.  

 

Learning logs will be given each half term. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum but that you can choose to do more if you wish. The final deadline for these to be handed in is the last Wednesday of the half term.

 

Spellings will be sent home every week. They need to be learnt for the spelling tests. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts.

 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.

 

Reading

Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day

We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home. At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home. The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too. I am happy for this to happen as long as they are still reading the school books on their level as these levels are given to the children based on an assessment. This then helps them to continue to read books at their level as well as books at home for pleasure.

 

Important information

Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school expect for stud earrings and watches.

Girls MUST have their long hair tied up.

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.
