Staff in Year 5: Mrs S Reece (Teacher) , Miss M Gale (Tues pm, Wed, Thurs, Fri pm)
I am really excited to be teaching you all this half term! We have a fun-filled year ahead of us with a trip already booked to enable us to learn more about our topic for the term! I am also excited to learn new things from you. I love children in my class to bring in items of interest about our topics (books, pictures, photographs) It is really good to share news and speak about new facts discovered! You will also be involved in planning around our topics too.
Our 2017-18 Topics:
Autumn: Swansea Gets Blitzed
Spring: Make a Difference
Summer: To Infinity and Beyond
PE Days: Tuesdays (indoor session) Wednesday ( development officer)
Please make sure that you have appropriate kit for the PE days (shorts, T-shirts and also tracksuits and trainers for the Autumn and Winter months as it does get cold)
Reading At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Guided reading in groups and whole class (same text for whole group- decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared (paired ,group and whole class)
Independent (own choice)
Please make sure you bring your reading books into school every day. Use your Reading Records and comment on them. I understand it may be hard for Mums and Dads to hear you read every night, so be independent and read to yourself when they can’t. Try to alternate it as much as possible and try to read a range of books.
Mondays: English homework given out and brought in on the Friday
Maths homework given out and brought in on the Friday
Reading every night for 20 minutes
Oracy Projects: 1 in the Autumn linked to topic and 1 in the Summer, linked to topic. These need to be something that you are interested in.
PPA day: Friday afternoon.
It’s time for a year of maximum standards, listening to each other, taking risks, thinking big, being better than yesterday, being bothered, no dead time, saying please and thank you and not being afraid to make mistakes!
