Hello and welcome to year 5, Malorie Blackman class. My name is Miss Berrington and here you will find all sorts of information about our class and what we will be getting up to this Autumn...
My major passions in life, besides my two boys, are teaching and Vinyl. If there is ever an opportunity to sing in class to promote and engage learning, I'll do it! I am also a huge Derby County fan, so let's see how they do this season...we could do with a good run!
We are really lucky to have Mrs Bird with us this year...she will teach Malorie Blackman class on a Tuesday. She is an exceptional scientist and specialist Spanish...ist...
If you wish to contact me, please do so via class dojo.
PE will take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. We will have indoor sessions on Wednesday and outdoor on Fridays.
Watch this space for my weekly update guys....sorry, but it may sometimes include how the RAMS are doing...
Homework will be set on a weekly basis. It usually alternates between a mathematics activity, mymaths for example, and an English activity, spag.com for example. Sometimes we may set a paper based activity, which we will give plenty of notice for. If you need a computer based activity printing out, please let me know via dojo and I can do that for you.
We expect ALL children, EVERY week to learn their spellings in preparation for their weekly test. Times tables MUST be learnt and time spent on TT rock stars is a must.
Finally, we encourage children to read as much as possible at home, both to themselves and to their parents. Reading at home is vital to compliment and reinforce what we are doing in school.
Please find below, Autumn 1 spellings. Week one spellings will be practised and given out on Friday 10th September 2021 for a test the following Friday.
