5M 2018 - 2019

Mr Mathias

I am from Liverpool and have been teaching for 14 years on two continents. I can't wait to teach my new class.

Welcome to 5m

I am excited to begin my 4th year here at Larkfield getting your children ready for the demands of Y6.

Reading & Spelling

Your child should be reading at home every day/night (including weekends and holidays) and talking about what he/ she/he has read. I will also be expecting some written work on their books. This can be just a short synopsis or book review, poster etc.

Spelling words will be given on a Friday for a test the following Friday. In addition to aaaspell.com, Spelling Frame is an excellent online tool for learning those tricky words.


At this point, all children should know the basic times tables facts and how to use related facts to help them solve more involved problems. Please support your child by practising these especially if they are still not fluent. Times Table Rockstars is a great way to do this.


Our topic this term is The Maya and our class book is Boy by Roald Dahl. 


... will now be on a Friday and children will need their full kits in order to participate. Long hair must also be tied back please! P.E. will often be outside so children may wear tracksuits or similar. These do not have to be in school colours. I would advise that PE kits only need be taken home every half term (unless they get wet or dirty).

Other Homework

To be ready for the rigorous demands of Y6 and to ensure we are all working at age appropriate expectations at the end of the year, I will be assigning short maths (or occasionally English) exercises on Fridays to be returned on Monday and again on Monday for Friday. These should not take more than 20 minutes to complete.
