Hello and welcome to 5R’s class page!
In our class team we have 12 girls and 12 boys. In Class 5R we are focused on becoming the best learners that we can be – confident, hardworking, resilient, enthusiastic and working well as a team!
The adults that help us are – Miss Robyn, who is our class teacher. Miss Ruth, who is our class Teaching Assistant and Emma, who teaches us Art & DT on a Wednesday afternoon.
In 5R we believe in following the five fundamentals to create the best environment for our learning. We believe in having a positive attitude and thinking with a growth mindset.
We have two pieces of homework that is set every week – our spelling and times tables practice. This is due in on a Wednesday when we have our spelling check.
We hope you enjoy our class page and getting to see some of the fab learning we are doing in 5R!
A Note About Reading.
At Stanhope, we recognise that reading is a vital skill that children need in life. Not only does reading have a significant impact on a child’s academic success but also impacts every part of their adult lives.
Reading is a huge focus for us in 5R and we are constantly promoting a love of reading in class. It is my aim, to encourage every child in my class to love reading and to see the power that reading has.
In class we have two weekly whole class guided reading sessions and one group guided reading session. We also have two sessions of independent reading a day, as well as one to one reading sessions with an adult.
As you can see, reading is a main priority within class and I encourage you to continue this promotion of reading at home as it really does benefit each and every child. It is expected that children should be reading a minimum of 3 times a week. This should be recorded on their reading bookmark, which they can then earn prizes for in class. The more a child reads, the bigger the prize!
Talking to your child about reading is a fantastic way to not only engage them with reading but to practice the comprehension skills we are working on in class. I have attached a prompt sheet of questions that help to practice a child’s reading comprehension skills at home.
