5M 2018 - 2019
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.
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 Tudors and our class book is Macbeth: A Shakespeare Story told by Andrew Matthews and Treason by Berlie Doherty
... will now be on a Tuesday 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).
Swimming will be on Friday until the half term.
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 occasionally set short spelling or maths homeworks for those that need extra practise. I will send a message via the Spider app. with details.
