Welcome back Year 5/6, it is summer already and now we are settled, happy and working hard together again, we have lots to be excited about this term.
My name is Miss Ashton, and I am the class teacher of the Falcons.
You can contact me via the school office, or at the usual email address
This term, the Falcons are going to be very busy. There are amazing projects and interesting topics in all subjects. If you would like to find out more about what your child will be learning, the class newsletter is included at the bottom of the page.
Working at Home
In the Falcons, we value and encourage reading at home to improve comprehension and help your child to be a better writer. Every Monday and Thursday, your child will be expected to bring in their reading books in so please ensure that they bring their purple book bag with them before they set off for school on Monday and Thursday mornings only. The children will be given the opportunity to have their books changed twice a week so please can you check that your child is reading regularly and has their reading record signed at least 4 times per week. Falcons love to read to someone.
The Falcons will also be given new spellings every Monday with an extra sheet to practice them at home. These need to be practised every night and the sheet filled in so that your child can do their best to learn new vocabulary.
As well as the spelling, we reinforce our learning in Maths each week by completing tasks on Mathletics and Timetables Rock stars. This helps keep our arithmetic skills sharp and gives the Falcons essential practice of new learning. Every Falcon has their own login, and it would be great if you can help ensure your child completes these tasks independently and in full each week. There are helpful videos and hints on the websites to support your child in their tasks.
