Welcome to Figsbury Class
Welcome back after the summer break to the new look Year 5 team, we hope you have had a brilliant summer
We are starting this year with a geography focus, investigation a region of Italy and have therefore called our topic “Pizzas to go.” Please look at our Topic Web to find out more of what we will be learning across the curriculum.
Our school Building Learning Power value this term is ‘Respect’, so if your child shows they have thought about their actions at home please let us know – we would love to hear all about it.
Ms Wildman will continue to teach Yr5 every other Monday morning and every Tuesday afternoon, we (as class teachers) will teach PE every other Monday afternoon. Please ensure your child has PE kit in school ALL week, as occasionally we need to make changes to our timetable and this will allow for us to include PE. As always, please also ensure ALL kit is clearly labelled and in a draw string PE bag; this will greatly heighten your chances of any lost kit being returned.
We would also ask that children wear FULL school uniform and bring in every day the following items:
- Named water bottle (ONLY water- no juice)
- Reading record
- Home school communication book
- Reading book (Bug club book)
- PE Kits
Home Learning will be a ‘Brainbusters’ style sheet set on Friday for Monday and a problem solving piece of Maths work set on Monday for Friday. We would appreciate your cooperation with the children completing this at home. If your child is finding the Home Learning difficult (or too easy) then please don’t hesitate to write in their home school communication book. As always, please ensure your child is reading daily and practising their mental arithmetic – it really does make a huge a difference to their learning progress across all the curriculum. Please can we ask that you also sign their reading record book ever time you hear them read as each read relates to a raffle ticket in class and every 2 weeks a ticket is drawn out of the hat and a prize given. The more signatures, the more raffle tickets and the higher the chance of winning a prize.
Please remember that snacks must be healthy and must NOT contain nuts as we are a NUT FREE school.
If you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to contact us, either in your child’s home-school communication book or at the end of the day.
