Welcome to 5CR

Happy Autumn Term!


Welcome to class 5CR's page. In our class we have 20 hardworking children.


For the first part of the week the children are taught by Mrs Rose and for the later part of the week the class are taught by Mrs Carthey. The class are also very lucky to have Mrs Sweet for additional support on certain morning and afternoon sessions. She carries out work on interventions, extra reading and misconception support. 


Our guided reading text this week is 'Esio Trot' and we are looking at 'Explore' reading gems this week.

This half term, our PE sessions are on a Wednesday where the children will be going SWIMMING (they will need full PE kit each week) and a Thursday. We ask that full PE kit is needed in school all week in case we have extra activities outside. These can be kept in individual lockers. 



MATHS - every Thursday, our CLICs, Beat That and SAFE challenges will come home. Please go through these sheets with your child, identifying successful areas and go through the questions that were incorrect. They may write on these sheets and do any extra questions to support these areas. 

READING - please read with your child as much as you can and discuss what they have read. The aim is to read at least 1 whole book each week. 

PROJECT HOME LEARNING - In the yellow project books, complete some project work based on the topic your child is studying. Use the mindmap at the front of the book with ideas and bring your book back at the end of the half term or term. 



Each week, we will be learning some topic based words. Use your spelling booklet to learn these words and they will be tested every Thursday! 

This week's words are:
