Y5/6: Mrs Ashdown's Class 2017 - 2018

Mrs Ashdown

Welcome to the Spring Term

Welcome back after Christmas. During this Spring Term we have many exciting topics and projects coming up. It's a great opportunity for us to get back into routine, learn new skills and develop as learners.

What’s happening this term

During this Spring Term we will be looking at our topic, "Rivers". This is a great Geography topic looking at the formation of and path taken by rivers. We will be studying their features and looking at how they effect the land around us.

We will be continuing our indoor PE sessions with our gym coach.

Science lessons will begin looking at Changing Materials with a particular focus on analysing the results of our experiments.

Spellings will being with a focus on important topic words and then be split into ability groups for all children.

 

Class Rules

Always show respect to others.

Be organised and prepared.

Take pride in what you do and who you are.

Have a growth mindset.

Develop independent skills.

Always try your best.

Take care of equipment and other people’s property.

Homework

Homework will be given out every Wednesday for Literacy, Numeracy and Spellings for a test every Friday. Homework that needs to be handed in will be collected on a Monday morning.

We will be having a particular focus on Timestables each week, so any extra time spent learning these will benefit your child greatly.

Reading

Every pupil has been given a Reading Record that is to be used in school and taken home with their chosen reading book. The expectation is that they will read at least three times to themselves out of school and record this in the book. Ideally, at least one of these sessions will be to an adult at home. This encourages your child to read and also gives you chance to see what progress they are making.

Reading Records will be collected in every Friday to be checked.

PE

Indoor PE lessons will begin with Swimming on a Tuesday and outdoor PE on a Friday afternoon (Circuit Training). Their is an expectation that the correct PE kit will be in school on a Monday ready for the week ahead.

Children not in the correct PE kit will not be allowed to take part in the lesson.

Class News

Spring Term - We will be starting our focus on SAT's revision shortly, and picking up speed with work to head towards a successful summer.
