Welcome to Class 5

Year 1
Class Teacher: Ms Bush
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Jackson and Miss Yeo

Learning Support Assistant: Miss Lonsdale, Mrs Summerfield and Mrs Delaney


Children in Class 5 are able to change their reading books when they have completed their book. We try to encourage independence, therefore children can change their book on their own.


PE days are Monday and Thursday.  Please make sure children have their PE kit in school at all times.


Homework will be sent out on a Thursday and then returned on Tuesday. Homework will support the learning taking place in the classroom in English and Maths. To develop your childs fluency and comprehension in a fun and interactive manner, Bug Club is set with books that match your childs ability with enough to challenge their reading. 


Phonics sessions take place daily with additional opportunities to read with the class teacher and TA throughout the week. It is expected that the children will read at home at least 3 times a week to encourage fluency and confidence so that they can achieve their full potential.


We are sending out lovely books for you to share with your children. These are books for adults to read to the children. We will be sending the books out on a Friday and they need to be returned on Monday morning. 


This term our topics are 'All Aboard' and 'Wonderful world'. In the first half term, children will be learning about different forms of transport. In the second half term, the children will be learning about the wonderful world we live in. 


Doors open at 8:40am and children must be in school by 8:50am. 

School finishes at 3.10pm and the children are to be collected from the classroom's garden door.


Any appointments will need to be made via the class teacher.


For online activities please see the children tab then click learning at home. There are links for the children to use to carry on with their learning.
