Welcome to Class 1
I am Miss Mawson teacher of year 5 and 6 children at Tow Law. I am supported in Class 1 by Mrs Macpherson a HLTA and Miss Coates a teaching assistant. Welcome to our new year and as always if any parents need to discuss anything regarding their child’s education please don’t hesitate to come and see me.
Further information about our curriculum is available on our website. You can view or download our topic plans below:
Being in the top class in a school is challenging but I also hope we have lots of fun and that the children enjoy themselves. We will be learning about a wide range of topics and concepts during this year. It continues to be vital for all children continue to read every day with a parent/carer, as fluency in reading and also understanding vocabulary is vital to all our work. This will help the children get the most out of school. We will be learning about the Victorians as well as North America and Sikhism, you can get more details from the Topic Web above.
These images show some of the work which Class 1 completed last year.
Please remember to have your PE kit ( blue shorts, yellow t-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and trainers) in school on a Monday till a Friday when it can be taken home to be washed. The children need to have their trainers/ plimsolls in each day so they can complete the daily mile with staff.
Homework in Class 1
Children receive homework each week for literacy this will be in the form of an activity grid where they can choose a task each week. As part of their maths work they will have specific work set each week, they will also need to spend time learning decimal, fraction and percentage conversions.
Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. Our accelerated reader scheme is continuing this year and the children need to have their reading journal handed in by a Tuesday morning each week so they can complete their reading quizzes in school.
If you have any questions please call at the office to arrange to come and see me.
