Class Blog – 3rd September 2018
Welcome back St Patrick!
A very busy summer has been and gone and I welcome all the children back to school. I hope the summer holidays have been thoroughly enjoyable and now you are full of enthusiasm to get started. Across year 5 and 6 we have planned some exciting work focusing on the Ancient Egyptians. The children will be making death masks, exploring how the Egyptians lived and creating Egyptian portraits. This will be supported by a WOW starter with workshops provided by an expert visitor. We will also be studying classification throughout the scientific world, exploring Islam in RE and developing our sporting skills further. In maths and English we will continue developing the good work that I observed from year 5 and improve our skills further.
All children are expected to read regularly every week to an adult; each time they read, they will receive raffle tickets. When they have read 5 times, they will receive raffle tickets and a merit, which will count towards their house. Other prizes for reading will be given in class throughout the year.
Could you please ensure that your child brings their home/school planner in to school every day. Please feel free to write any comments in it.
Every Friday your child will bring their planner home which will have been signed by their teacher. This should be countersigned by the parent/carer and returned to school again on Monday morning.
We will follow these to make our class and school enjoyable and safe places to be.
