Neptune -Year 5
Welcome to Neptune Class!
I am Neptune Class’ teacher and my name is Ms Zakari. I am supported by Mrs Costa. We are both looking forward to an exciting year together as a class.
This term we will be learning lots of new things. Our Topic lessons this term see Neptune focusing on Ancient Greeks exploring the lives and culture of Ancient Grecians.
In English, Neptune will be writing an adventure story based on the meeting tale ‘This Morning I met a Whale’. Later we will be learning how to write persuasive texts.
We have daily reading sessions and once a week your child will read with me and will have a comment in their reading record.
Children need to bring in a water bottle each day which needs to be washed every evening.
We have PE every week with a sports coach on Tuesday and with Arsenal football coaches on Thursday. Children must have their full PE kits and bring them home each week to be washed.
Homework will be set on a Thursday on Google Classroom. Homework can be completed in homework books and is due in on Wednesdays. On Thursday, children will also be set two texts on ‘Bug club’ to read, they will take home their reading text on a Friday and can choose a book from the class library once a week. Children must ensure their reading record is brought in and signed everyday. In Neptune Class, children are expected to write a comment about their reading and then ask a parent / guardian to sign their comment.
As always, please do contact me if you have any concerns regarding your child over the next term, either by phoning or emailing the office. Thank you for your continued support.
