Welcome to Class 17!
We are Year 5 children in Class 17 and we always strive to be the best that we can be.
In our class, there are 27 children and our teacher is Mrs Marsden. Mr Binney, Mr Rawlinson and Miss Wall will be covering class for PPA this year. We are very lucky to have Miss Wall teaching us! She is a teacher at Wingfield.
Mrs Bailey will be the Teaching Assistant in class.
We love hearing from the parents and carers of our children in Class 17. If you wish to contact us, please either catch us at the beginning or end of the day to make an appointment, phone the school office to make an appointment or you can email us. Our year group email is: THPYear5@nclt.ac.uk
Thank you for your continued support, Mrs Marsden
Please try to bring your PE kit into school on a Monday. We expect children to bring their PE kits in a drawstring bag and remember to take them home regularly.
One of our PE lessons will take place on a Thursday. The other PE lesson is usually on a Tuesday although this can sometimes change due to events in school.
Homework is given out every Friday and is expected back the following Friday. We will send Maths and English homework on alternate weeks. Children are also given weekly spellings every Friday and will be tested the following Friday. We encourage the children to learn their spellings throughout the week so that they become confident and aren’t worrying about their spelling scores on a Thursday evening. Parents, you can see how your child does in the weekly spellings as they will be tested in their Reading Planner.
Reading Planners will be checked on a Thursday but should be in school every day for us to write in them when we have read with your child. Children who read three times a week will be rewarded with a ‘reading token’ tick which will be added to the class total and a ‘Golden Ticket’. If your child reads 5 times a week, additional tokens and Golden Tickets will be given. We are set a target for the number of reading tokens that we earn each half term and, if we meet it, the whole class get to enjoy a special reward. The Reading Reward is decided by the class.
Useful Resources and Games
We are always aiming to strengthen the skills we learn at school and there is no where better to do it than at home. Dive into some of the links below and let the children show you just how amazing they are!
