We are Year 5 Larch Class.
We enjoy our learning with Mrs Dore, Mrs Falkinder and Mrs Robinson.
Mrs Dore is the teacher for Larch Class, Mrs Falkinder and Mrs Robinson are the teaching assistants who work in both Year 5 Larch and Year 5 Oak classrooms.
Your child will have their own school diary and they can record their daily reading in this. In Key Stage 2, we use the Accelerated Reader scheme (AR). Children will have access to books from our school library and will also have access to a wide range of texts on the online reading section on the AR website. The web address for this website will be given in your child's school diary and a link will be added to the class web page. Please ensure that your school diary is in school every day as this is also a way for teachers and parents to communicate.
In Larch Class, weekly spelling lists go home on Mondays and we complete our mini spelling tests on Fridays. If you lose your list of spellings or are absent from school, don't worry, they will be a section on our class web page with the weekly spellings so you can check and keep up to date. Children also have access to Spelling Shed so they can practise their spellings using the online games and tasks.
Children have daily reading and weekly spellings to learn in addition to their weekly arithmetic. We use Schofield and Sim arithmetic books and children will complete sections A and C in school as part of our daily arithmetic sessions, and will complete section B as homework. Schofield and Sim books go home on Tuesdays and must come back to school on Fridays.
