Miss Jackson's Class
A huge welcome to our class
where we reach for the stars!
In year five we set an example through being respectful: to our classmates, all staff and school equipment. Most importantly, we respect ourselves and enhancing our learning. Visitors, helpers and new faces are always greeted with a friendly, polite smile and a positive, responsible attitude.During this year, Mrs Willsher will be helping to support the children’s learning and development; both in the classroom and during interventions across the year.
As a class, we agree together a related target for us all to achieve; this will be updated, alongside children’s personal targets, on a half-termly basis. Children receive tokens throughout school based on their politeness, kindness and hard work. Class prizes and superstar certificates will be also awarded for exceptional attitudes and outstanding pieces of work.
In our class we are working on taking responsibility for organising ourselves, where:
Class spellings are given out on a Friday, with lists updated on a weekly basis. Please can you make sure children bring their spelling book in every day, ready for their tests.
Any English and Maths homework will be set on Friday with the expectation that it will be returned by the following week.
Children are welcome to bring in their own reading books from home but it will be their own responsibility to look after them within the classroom. We also have plenty of books which children are encouraged to read and enjoy within school! Please speak to Miss Jackson if you would like any reading recommendations!
Full P.E kits are required on Tuesdays and Thursdays but we kindly ask that they remain in school throughout the school week.
This webpage reflects our love for learning in a fun, creative and inclusive manner and will be updated regularly with our ‘wonderful work’:
Autumn Term Topic
Our Autumn Term topic is Who's My Mummy where the children will be learning about the Egyptians. In particular there will be a focus on Egyptian travel and trade, lifestyle and beliefs. The children will have the opportunity to make a range of items such as a shadouf and a model of a pyramid.
Spring Term Topic
Our Spring Term topic is Swing into the Sixties which will incorporate major events and influences of the 1960's as well as a focus on space. Highlights of this term include a Come Dine With Me theme day with 1960's food and entertainment, making and launching rockets and a papier mache solar system.
