Welcome to Class 10 - Year 5

Our Class Team:

Class Teachers - Mrs Burgess & Mrs Shaw

Classroom Support - Mrs Pollard

A Very Warm Welcome to Class Ten!

We are a Y5 class who always strive to be the best we can be. We are proud of the progress we make in lessons, and as we grow and learn, we are proud to be becoming good people.

Together, with God's love, we can achieve anything.

 

Equipment: we always have our planners, reading books and homework books in school every day; our PE kits need to be worn for school on Tuesday and Friday. PE kits are an essential part of the school uniform.

We bring money in a named envelope.

We have flute lessons on Wednesday afternoons and we ensure we are prepared by having our flutes in school.

HAVING THE RIGHT EQUIPMENT HELPS US TO LEARN 

Homework: we do maths (an arithmetic activity), reading, spelling and handwriting homework every week. 

Half term homework - we have introduced half-termly homework activities. These are to be completed across the whole half term and can be done in any way as long as they are based on our knowledge organisers. These are to be completed to a high standard and will be checked at regular intervals.

DOING HOMEWORK HELPS US TO LEARN

Friendship: we always respect each others’ points of view; we listen to each other and respond politely; we treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. Prayer times, charity work and worship help us to feel close friends with God.

BEING FRIENDLY HELPS US TO LEARN

READING AWARDS: Reading awards assemblies are held at the end of each half term. To earn a bronze certificate children need to read a minimum of five times each week. Platinums and diamond certificates are awarded to children who go above and beyond and even read in the holidays! Help Class 10 to win the trophy and read lots at home.

Knowledge Organisers

Our Year 5 knowledge organisers can be seen on the Curriculum page. Here you can find out about what we'll be learning in our lessons this half term. These will be updated regularly.

Reading Plus Online

Do continue to encourage the use of this at home. It is designed to improve reading fluency and comprehension as well as developing inference skills (which are vital skills for the SATs). Children can access this at home using their own log-in and it will contribute towards a reading award as long as it is signed by an adult in school planners.

Recommended Reading for Fun

Meet the Teacher (Information about your child's new class)

Due to current circumstances, we will be unable to invite you in to school to meet the teacher. We's love to see you all face-to-face but until we can, the powerpoint below has all the information you'll need to know about your child's new class. Do let us know if you have any further questions.

Mathletics

Mathletics is a great programme to use in school and at home. It is designed to develop and improve all areas of mathematics from arithmetic to problem solving. It will be targeted to your child's particular year group and ability. Children can access this at home using their own log-in and can earn certificates each week. The maths class with the most points in a week also recieves the Mathletics Trophy.

Spellings.

In addition to weekly spellings it is important for your child to practise the common exception words for their year group. We distribute these over each half term. Letters will be sent home with the spellings for this half term.

ACCESSING MS TEAMS FOR CHILDREN

Please see below 'Quick Guide to MS Teams for Parents 2020' guide as to how your children can set up themselves ready to interact with their teacher.

All children with current log-ins will automatically be logged in to their new September 2020 Class when they access the system. 

Please note that children will need to access MS class team pages in the event of a local lockdown or if individually self-isolating. 

Children will also need to log-in to the system. These log-ins consist of a 4 digit number which will form the start of their email address, and a password. PARENTS / CARERS NEED TO ASK YOUR CHILD’S CLASS TEACHER, VIA THE FACEBOOK LINK ON THIS CLASS WEBPAGE, FOR THEIR UNIQUE  4-DIGIT LOG-IN CODE AND PASSWORD.

e.g Joe Bloggs is given code: 1234,  therefore email address will be 1234@christchurchprimary.warrington.sch.uk. Every child should add this exact e-mail address to their 4-digit log-in code.

Password:   Blog34

Please note:

Third parties cannot contact your children via MS TEAMS as it is an account password-only system. However, children can send messages to each other. It is your responsibility to supervise your children’s use of MS TEAMS and to remind your children that they must remain respectful of school rules and expected behaviour standards in relation to any such messages. NB: school IT admin have access to all messages. Thank you.

 

CLICK HERE FOR CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE 

PLEASE NOTE THAT YOU CAN 'FRIEND REQUEST' YOUR CHILD'S NEW CLASS FACEBOOK PAGE ANYTIME AND THE CLASS TEACHER WILL RESPOND TO YOUR REQUEST AT THE START OF THE AUTUMN TERM. PLEASE ALSO SEND THE PAGE A PRIVATE MESSAGE STATING YOUR CHILD'S NAME. 

NB: PARENT OR CARER enquiries only – children should not use this method to contact class teachers.

Dear children, Parents and Carers: our online safety teaching emphasises that internet use always comes with risks; it is all about what we do when we come across something online that worries or frightens you. Teachers have judged all the links here to lead to safe online learning, but not everything on the platforms (such as youtube) is safe of course. So parents, monitor your child’s online activity and if you are concerned about any content they access, report it via the CEOPS button on the safeguarding page or home page of our website. Children, do the same.

 

Children should not try to individually video-chat or telephone staff, as for safeguarding reasons staff cannot interact 1:1 with a child in this way - any questions should be posted on the class 'General' chat please. Also, whilst MS TEAMS is a secure site, you should only allow your child to upload pictures of themselves to MS TEAMS if it is relevant to a learning activity or task they have been doing or something of clear and ‘innocent’ interest, they are suitably dressed and you are aware that other children, despite our instructions to the contrary, may have the capacity to copy pictures of your child and use them in other applications.
