Miss Davison and Mrs Mallaby welcome you to Year4/5
Miss Davison and Mrs Mallaby are looking forward to welcoming pupils in September for an exciting Autumn 1 Term. Please note for this half-term, the Year 4/5 school day starts at 8:55am and ends at 3:10pm and pupils will enter and leave through the fire door outside of Mrs Fotheringham's office. Due to the current restrictions, parents are not allowed on the school site. However, please do not hesitate to contact me through Class Dojo for any queries.
Please find below, the class timetable for the week, the Autumn Term 1 letter that gives you all the information about what your child is learning this term and the Overview of Learning for the whole year.
Homework with be set every Friday and needs to handed in on the following Monday. Your child will have each week:
Spelling 'Look, Cover, Spell, Check' sheet
(A spelling list in their Reading diaries so they can continue to learn their spellings throughout the week).
In addition to this, to help the children 'catch up' in their reading, there is a set of Reading Challenges that you can do with your child. Please see them below. These can be handed into your teacher when you have completed them.
Also, we are introducing Key Instant Recall Facts or 'KIRFs' which are set to help develop your child's fluency in mathematics. We are asking you to help them learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect your child to learn them at least 3 times a week. These lists of KIRFs align with the new curriculum. They are designed to be challenging.
Year 4/5 have P.E. every Monday and Thursday.
Due to the current climate, could your child come in their P.E. kits on that day.
NO jewellery is to be worn during a P.E. Lesson. If your child, is unable to take an item of jewellry off or out, we recommend that they do not wear it on this day.
