Welcome to Asteroid Class!


Welcome Year 5,  


The adults that work in this class are Miss Freeman and Miss Wingrove.


Your new learning experience is Out and About 


Please see our curriculum newsletter at the top of page for more information


PE will be on Monday, so please make sure your child comes to school in the correct kit on this day and that long hair is tied back. We do not allow the children to wear earrings for PE so please can they be removed on these days or taped over. 


On Friday this term we have swimming lessons so please ensure your child brings in their swim kit.  Your child will need a one-piece swimming costume or swimming shorts/trunks (not the loose baggy type) and towel. These must be brought into school on the morning of the lesson. If these are forgotten there will not be a phone call home.

Maths homework is handed out on a Friday and due in the following Thursday. Spellings is also handed out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. Your child should be able to complete this work independently, as it will be based on work they have already done in class that week. Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any concerns before the due date.


It is also beneficial if all children regularly practise their times tables facts, so that they will improve their speed of recall. Times Table Rockstars is a great resource to support this and it can be accessed on laptops and tablets at home. Times table recall remains a focus this year and children will be tested weekly through ‘Times Table Olympics’ to ensure that recall is quick and accurate.


We are also encouraging all children to read at home; this needs to be recorded into the children's reading records. It is very important for the children to read regularly and understand their reading.

We will be adding photos, news and pieces of work regularly to this page, so make sure you come back soon.


Please feel free to email with any questions you may have.

Thanks for visiting.

Miss Freeman


Our Class explored the story of Ug and Stone Age Boy. The Children were asked to create their own freeze frames for the opening, build up, problem, resolution and ending of the story.

We hope the Year 6 children have a fabulous time at Camp this week. We look forward to hearing all about it on your return.
