Welcome to Fireflies Class

Welcome back!!

I hope you have had a restful holiday and ready to work hard this half term.  We are continuing to focus on our topic- ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’. A topic map for this half term is available on the back of this letter.

Weekly spelling and times table tests- tested weekly on a Monday.

Weekly home learning activity- handed in and checked on a Monday.  Choose an activity from the dojo grid.

Reading journals-  checked twice a week to ensure children are reading frequently. Rewards will be available to children who read on a regular basis.

PE- First for Sport coaches will be delivering PE sessions on a Friday afternoon. An additional PE lesson will take place on a Wednesday morning. PLEASE ensure your child comes to school with the correct PE kit otherwise they will not be able to take part.

Science this half term (Yr. 5/6 only).

During this half term, Yr, 5 and 6 pupils will be covering the Yr. 5 objective “describe the changes as humans develop to old age.” This will involve learning about the different stages of the Human life cycle including birth, puberty and old age (death). If you are concerned at all, please speak with me.

Keep an eye on the school’s website as it is updated frequently. There is a specific page for our class (Fireflies Class) and I will update this regularly with news and photographs.

Finally, if you have a message for me, then please tell the member of staff on duty in the morning and they will write it in the communication book. I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you would like to speak with me, please contact the school office to make an appointment.

Many thanks and best wishes,

Mr .Marks
