Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Falcons!
Falcons Class is Upper Key Stage Two with Year 5 and 6 children. This year Falcons will be taught by Mrs. Lowe. Our class will have the support of Mrs. Green and Mrs Hateley.
Children are encouraged to read a range of texts and as often as they can in Upper Key Stage 2. They have free choice what they read and this could be books, magazines, newspapers etc. Please encourage your child in their reading as this has a positive impact on their learning in general. Reading diaries will be checked every Friday so children must ensure they are in school. In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to write their own comments in their diary and they have a list of things that they could include. If children read at least three times a week, they will receive a Dojo.
Six Book Reading Challenge
In Key Stage 2 each year group has the opportunity to complete the six book reading challenge. Each year group has 6 books that they have to try and read before the end of the year. These books can be read independently by the children or with an adult’s support. Once the children have completed all of the books, they will receive a medal and certificate in family worship. Your child will bring their first reading challenge book home this week.
Times tables and spelling tests
The times tables and spelling tests will be every Friday. Children need to be learning these throughout the week and ensure they have their spelling sentence sheets in school on a Friday.
This year Falcons will be learning brass instruments and Mrs Kimber will be coming in to school every Monday afternoon to teach this. Please ensure your child has their instrument in school every Monday.
Children will have indoor PE lessons on a Monday and Friday afternoon.
Children should come to school in their PE kits on these days. Jewellery should be removed and long hair must be tied back. Thank you.
Children should have a water bottle, containing either water or squash only, in school each day please.
