Mach

Mach Class – Year 5
David Mach is a Scottish artist who creates sculptures, collages and installations. He has created art from coat hangers, telephone boxes, soft toys and rubber tyres. He has even created sculptures out of match sticks, which he has then set fire to! 
Mr Neave chose David Mach because his sculptures are colourful and fun, are often enormous, and there is always something new to see each time you look at them. Mr Neave thought the children would really enjoy creating sculptures and collages in the style of David Mach, and would have fun using everyday items in unusual ways to create their own art.
 

Homework
 
Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
On Mondays the homework book is sent home. One week the work will be based on Literacy or Phonics and the following week the focus will be Maths.
From January 2017 the children will also take home a “KIRFs”  (Key Instant Recall Facts) sheet each half term to be learnt.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
 
Library
 
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
 
 
PE
 
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
