Welcome to Honeycrisp Class
Teacher - Mrs Schofield
TA - Miss Compton
We're very excited for the year ahead and we're looking forward to developing new skills, interests and a love of learning with the children.
Please contact me directly via the class email: firstname.lastname@example.org or make an appointment to see me through the school office.
Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.
Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box, if they are having a packed lunch.
We have PE 2 times during the school week - on Tuesday and Wednesday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside once a week so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.
Children need to have earrings covered by micropore tape and long hair must be tied back. Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit! If your child is unable to take part in PE due to illness or injury, please notify me in writing including the reason for non-participation.
Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings!
Children are expected to read 5 times a week and record it in their reading records. If your child reads 5 times a week, they are rewarded with 5 minutes extra play and a chance for our class to win the reading trophy each week. Year 5 children can complete the reading record independently, but an adult comment is required at least once a week. This is incredibly important for all children, to support their learning and expand their vocabulary. Children will be able to change their books when they have completed them.
We have reviewed the spelling system used currently and have decided to adapt it to suit the children’s current learning needs. The children will now have 10 spellings each week from the spelling pattern given out. Spellings will be given out on a Monday and tested on Friday mornings.
Homework will be set on a Friday and due back on the following Wednesday. There will be English and maths work set. This may include work on TTRS (Times table rock stars) and Reading Eggs; although, children have access to these resources at all times.
These are the letter formations we use at Greenmeadow.
Thank you for your continued support!
