Year 5 - Chestnut
Welcome to Chestnut Class 2020!
We are Year 5 and our teacher is Mrs Dowling.
For three afternoons a week Mrs Wells (HLTA) teaches our class.
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Morris is with the class every morning and afternoon, except for Fridays.
Mrs Janse Van Rensburg also supports us on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday.
Mrs O'Shea is with us on a Thursday.
REMEMBER: you will be able to message me at firstname.lastname@example.org to get your student code to access our SeeSaw journal over the next few days.
Here are the adults ready to help you learn in Chestnut Class:
REMINDER: Come into school in your PE kit (school uniform t-shirt and shorts with a warm layer over the top, trainers are essential) on both Mondays and Fridays as these are our PE days! This will mean you don't have to change at school when we have PE.
Swimming will not be starting until the Spring term.
Keep in touch...
Send in questions, pictures of what you've been doing or some of your home learning activities. It would be great to share some of your work on the website! Let me know if you're having problems accessing the Accelerated Reading website, Times Table Rockstars, SeeSaw, etc..
Journey into Space...
Well done Chestnut Class - you've made a brilliant start to the new year. It has been great to see everyone return with such positivity.
Whilst there are lots of new routines to get used to, the children have been brilliant over the first couple of days. It will take a little time to get everything (or at least as much as we can) up and running, but we have begun well. Thank you Chestnut Class for being so patient as you are the last class into school through the field gate and the last to leave.
There's a lot of hand washing and sanitising throughout the day, which can slow us down a bit - but it's all important for keeping everyone safe. If you would like to bring in our own named sanitiser you can, but this has to stay in school, rather than go between home and school every day.
Please remember to keep items brought into school to an absolute minimum but be sure to wear warm layers as we have to have the doors and windows open in the classroom!
I have not yet set the home learning tasks for the half term, but do please read every day at home and keep learning your times tables. The library should open next week, so you will be able to choose from a greater range of books. If you have any school books at home still, please do bring them in!
