Mackesy Class – Year 5
Charlie Mackesy has been a cartoonist for The Spectator and an illustrator for the Oxford University Press. He has also worked for Comic Relief.
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.
We have an exciting bus library with many interesting books. Children will visit once a week and will be encouraged to borrow books.
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.
More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
