Welcome to Year 5!
As a new class to the school we have welcomed many new faces as well as familiar ones, including our new teacher Mr Trusler and teaching assistant Miss Penny.
Children can earn "Golden Time" every Friday by reading at least 3 times each week and getting a parent/guardian to sign their Reading Diaries to show this. Progress with reading and homework will be checked on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays by Miss Penny.
Homework is set weekly every Friday along with a spelling list to learn over the following week. We ask that this is completed before the following Friday. Homework may be set on Purple Mash as "2Dos" or independent research tasks. Each pupil has been given their own log in and can log in to complete any 2Dos as well as driving their own learning through a variety of interactive resources and games available. Children will be tested on their spelling words in school at least twice a week.
We allow staff time off to undertake union official duties, however we do not have any staff who are currently union officials.
