Class 5

Dear Parents and Carers,

                                       Welcome to Class 5. My name is Mrs Doolan and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. I am very much looking forward to working with your child, supporting them with their learning and getting to know them better.

In addition to myself, your child will be supported by Mrs Lee and Mrs Noonan.

Your child will be set a piece of English, Maths or Topic homework each week. The details of each piece of homework will be shared weekly.   Your child will receive a reading book each week which I hope you will share with your child. Please encourage your child to read sections of the book and discuss characters, settings and language choices. Please then sign the book and comment on their progress or discussions you have shared. Every Friday your child will receive a list of spellings to learn. The following Friday your child will be asked to write these spellings independently and their progress will be recorded. Later on in the autumn term your child will also receive times tables to learn.  It is really important that your child spends time learning their times tables as often as possible.  Please encourage your child to revise their times tables and spellings daily. 

P.E sessions for Class 5 take place on Mondays. Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct kit on that day. In order to ensure the safety of your child during P.E. please ensure that long hair is tied back and earrings are removed.

If your child requires an inhaler please send it into class labelled with child’s name and the dosage required.

In Class 5 the children are able to purchase toast at break time if they wish. One slice costs 20p. The children can bring in money whenever they wish to purchase toast.

If you require any more information or wish to discuss anything further please don’t hesitate to ask me.

Thank you for your support.


Mrs Doolan
