WELCOME TO EMMAUS CLASS
The teachers are Miss Ray and Mrs Rafferty.
There’s a lot to look forward to with an exciting and broad curriculum. We aim for our pupils to develop a strong sense of independence with a clear view on making positive choices so that Y5 is a time filled with both enjoyment and challenge.
We follow the ‘Come and See’ RE programme to help guide the children on their faith journey.
We are always grateful for your help. Please let us know if you are able to come in and hear readers.
Please don’t hesitate to come and speak to us if you have any queries or concerns especially if you see us on the playground before or after school -that is the perfect opportunity to talk.
We encourage the children to read regularly. A bookmark of questions is provided to help the children engage with the text they are reading. We also run class reading challenges and book bingo. Please help support your child’s comprehension by regular book talk.
Reading records are collected in on Tuesday but should be in school every day.
The children are encouraged to use Times Tables Rockstars daily to boost the speed of recall of the times tables.
In addition to TT Rockstars, one piece of written homework is set on a Wednesday to be handed in on the following Tuesday.
Children are expected to learn the 10 weekly spellings, which all follow the same pattern, using multi-sensory strategies.
