Hello everyone, my name is Mrs Newbegin and I will be the class teacher in Year Five.
This year, I am fortunate enough to be supported by three wonderful teaching assistants: Mrs Boyer, Mrs Longley and Miss Colenutt.
Between us, our aim is to support your child in fulfilling their true potential.
If you ever need to talk to us about anything, our door is always open.
As we are studying Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone as one of our English topics this year, the children will be sorted into a house where they will be able to earn rewards independently and as part of a team. Please feel free to keep an eye on the house points board, which is located in our cloak room, to see how your child's house is faring throughout the year.
As a school, we subscribe to several websites to aid and improve your child's learning: Time Tables Rockstars, an interactive game to practice times tables on and ReadTheory, a website filled with comprehension style activities. All children should have their details for TT Rockstars already and will receive their login information for the other Read Theory when we return in September.
Please practise the Year 3/4 Spellings with your children.
Please practise the Year 5/6 Spellings with your children.
Please read with your child daily (even if it is just for 5 minutes) and fill in their reading record. This will drastically boost their confidence and have a positive affect on their attainment.
We have also signed up to www.oxfordowl.co.uk
This website allows the children to read an amazing selection of free Ebooks
at home on their phone, tablet, Ipad, laptop or computer!
Our curriculum topics for the autumn term are:
Geography: study of Europe
Science: Properties of Materials and Forces
Art: Henry Moore
Design and technology: Woodwork
P.E: Tag Rugby and Yoga
R.E: What does it mean if God is holy and loving?
How do religion and science both conflict and compliment each other?
Our P.E days are on __________ and __________.
Please could you ensure that your child has their trainers as well as their full indoor and outdoor kit every week (as the weather is so unpredictable and we are now entering the cold, winter months!)
