Class 5

smileyfrown WELCOME TO CLASS 5 frownsmiley

PHEW! We've all made it through the first week back at school and we all still have smiles on our faces. It has been great week getting to know everyone and getting back into the school routine. We have had a great time painting work for our display and getting used to Year 2 ;) 

 

Our class teacher is Miss Manson. Mrs Wright is our fabulous Teaching Assistant and she will be supporting us with our learning throughout the week. On a Wednesday morning and a Thursday afternoon, Mr Honey will be teaching our class. 

During the morning sessions, we will have phonics, Maths and English lessons. In the afternoons, we will be doing handwriting, reading and a range of lessons and activities using our 'Rainbow Curriculum of Greasley'.

mailOur topic for this half term is:mail
The Seaside

A lot of our English work will be based on the story of 'The Lighthouse Keeper's Lunch' and some of the other stories in this series.

 

We are aiming to ensure that each child in the class has a reading book to take home by the end of the week. Please be patient with us as while we are sorting out appropriate reading books for each child (some children may get reading books before others due to the time it takes to show children where the books are and to listen to them read some of the book before they take it home). ​​​​​​
