Neptune -Year 5

Welcome to Neptune Class

My name is Mr Bucknall and I am your child’s class teacher. Miss McCormack is the class’teaching assistant. I am looking forward to working with the children over the next year and helping them to meet their potential as learners.

This half term we will be learning lots of new things. Our topic is Walls and Barricades. We will be exploring how walls and barricades have played such a key effect in over the course of history.

In English, we are beginning to write adventure stories. We will also have a weekly grammar focus, so please ask your child what we are studying and help them to revise this subject. As a class, we are reading When Hitler stole pink rabbit.

With the children being in the Juniors, they will need to bring their own fruit for a playtime snack. I will remind them to take this to the playground. They will also be learning Spanish once a week.

A few helpful reminders:

We have PE twice a week. Children must have their full PE kits for Tuesday morning and Thursday afternoon.

Children must read and have their reading record signed every night. If this isn’t completed more than twice in a week then your child will miss playtime to read.

Homework is due in on Wednesday. I will mark it and return it on Thursday. If homework isn’t completed then children will be expected to complete it at playtime.

Year 6 children can expect more homework then others as this is an important year for them. Please encourage your child to complete all their homework with plenty of time.

Please collect your child from the playground at the end of the day (3:15pm) and remember to let the office know if someone different will be collecting your child.

As always, please speak to me if you have any concerns regarding your child over the next term.
