Your Year 5 teachers are: Mrs Morris
Miss Hollands ( Monday)
Happy New Year everyone!
It's a strange situation we find ourselves in again, but all the staff are here to teach, help and support you in any way possible. Please contact the school if you find yourselves in difficulty accessing the remote learning.
As Mr Langford explained in his e mail to you all, a timetable for the week will be posted in the remote learning folder each week. On it you will see all areas in purple are zoom log in lessons for registration and pre teaching the next session. I urge you to check Dojo for the zoom codes and log ins as they won't be placed on this open page for security. There will be more structure to the day, similar to a school day, so please urge your child to take some responsibility for their learning whenever they can in logging on.
I will provide as much material in the home pack as I can for our on line sessions and as you will see there are back up resources to reinforce areas in maths and Spag. I will still be looking at setting a spelling test on a Friday and times table quiz as usual.
Try to encourage your child to find a table in a quiet area, with a clock nearby, so they can pace themselves time wise in order to have a snack and break, which are important as well. Remember I am on the end of Dojo for queries and will do what I can. I heard this class were amazing with their online learning last year from Miss Sullivan, let's rise to the challenge again, hopefully for a shorter time on this occasion!
Welcome to Year 5!
On behalf of Mrs Anderson and myself I would like to thank you all, for the way in which you prepared your children for coming back to school. They walked in confidently with smiles on their faces on Wednesday, which continued for the rest of the short week.
Routines in school and class are being followed extremely well, with hand washing and sanitising being our main priorities and we can now go forwards with our learning. At present we are encouraging reading at least 4 times during the week with an adult signature each time in their reading logs, to show you are also aware or sharing with your child what they have read. Any text at any time, school book or not, reading for understanding and fun is the main thing.
As a staff we are looking at ways to set homework to minimise the back and forth of paper so please bear with us. However on a Friday your child may return with a slip of paper of Year 3-4 HFW we have looked at which they are still struggling with, please encourage them to write them out and find tricks to remember them.
P.E days are Tuesday and Friday, as I stated on class dojo, so please wear only P.E kit on those days to school.
Finally, I am available on class dojo and will respond when time allows, but please be aware I also have a family and home commitments so have set quiet hours after 6pm on week days and at the weekend. Please try to respect those family times I have set.
I look forward to an amazing year with your children and getting to know them as well as you, let's work as a team for year 5!
