Titania 2016 - 2017
Year 5 Teacher
Which adults are working in Titania?
The main members of staff are- Myself (Miss Blezard), Mrs Luff and Miss Renwick. My PPA (planning, preparation and assessment) time takes place on a Thursday afternoon each week. During this time, the children will have French with Ms Ireland and R.E with Miss Peach.
Please can you ensure your child brings in their reading book everyday. This way they can take part in our afternoon reading sessions that take place everyday. In Titania we change our reading books on a Monday and Thursday only (even if they have finished the book). This allows them to become increasingly fluent readers and deepens their understanding around the text. I would like to thank you for supporting and encouraging your child to read at home- the majority of children are reading every night which is incredible. Not only does regular reading enable children to become increasingly fluent readers, but it also supports their spelling, grammar and range of vocabulary. Understanding the story and actions or feelings of the character is a vital skill to develop in year 5; asking your child a few questions based on what they have just read helps to develop this skill.
Homework will be sent out every Friday and will need to back in for the following Wednesday. Your child will receive one piece of literacy homework which will be spelling focused, and one piece of maths homework which will be times tables based. (See maths and literacy pages for useful links.)
We will be focusing on ball games this term in P.E and it will take place outdoors. Because we are outdoors, we do not have a set day for P.E as this is weather dependent this time of year. Please can you ensure your child brings their P.E kit to school every Monday and takes it home with them on a Friday only. This means as well as your child being able to participate in their P.E lessons, they will also be able to complete sports training with Miss Harris. The weather is still very cold, so please make sure children's P.E kits include a warm jumper and joggers/leggings as well as suitable outdoor footwear.
