This year is a very important year for the children that will see them growing with independence and learning increasingly challenging concepts. However, we will be sure to have lots of fun along the way! Be sure to check our class page regularly as we will want to keep you updated on the things we are doing in class.
Reading at home with your child will help to improve your child's confidence when reading, their fluency and understanding of texts that they have read. We encourage reading at home as a priority. Children should read for up to 10 minutes each night. Home reading books will be changed weekly. (Friday)
If you haven't already done so ask me for a form to register for the home reading scheme.
This year we have changed our system for homework. There is a homework menu on this page. The chidren can complete the homework task when they can and every term we will have a presentation day when they can bring in and show what they have completed. We may use Purple Mash for this purpose. We will let you know which spellings your children will need to learn throughout this year. They will have a list of the spellings for each half term. Children also need to know the multiplication tables and will be tested on these regularly. Please ensure your child practises the tables at home
P.E is on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon. P.E kits consists of a white top, black/navy blue shorts and black pumps. PE kits are part of our school uniform. On occasion, we may have sporting events during the week so PE kit should be kept in school unless it needs washing. PE kit will be sent home each half term. Please ask your child if their pumps are the correct fit as they do grow quite quickly.
Your child is encouraged to bring in bottled water daily to stay hydrated all day. Water bottles should be taken home each night.
This term began for year 5/6 with a visit from a local Brazilian family, who told us what life was like in Brazil and brought in some wonderful home cooked food for us to try - drawing an end to our topic on Brazil. In addition to this, we travelled to All Saints High School for a Science experience day, where we put on our lab coats and investigated collision theory and the rates of reaction. The children had a brilliant time and learnt a lot. The children have been extra lucky this term, having had the opportunity to attend football festivals hosted by Liverpool and Everton Football Club and have their PE sessions delivered by Liverpool Community Coach Chris (with some children having also had the opportunity to attend the Reading Stars Programme that Liverpool Football Club offers). On top of this, we spent two weeks developing our swimming ability, at Kirkby Leisure Centre, with all children making fantastic progress and developing confidence in the water. As the term continues, the children will continue to learn about the USA in Geography and how and why its population has continued to develop over time; as well as having the opportunity in Food Technology to research, design and develop their own American pancake recipes to eat on Shrove Tuesday in school. Furthermore, the children will begin their historical study on the Victorians where they will go on an extra curricular trip to learn more about how they changed the way we live in Liverpool.
