Welcome to Class 5!
Class 5 privileges:
In Class 5, children take on many responsibilities at school and, in return, have many privileges. Therefore, as the oldest children in the school, they are expected to act as role-models to the other pupils.
Children are allowed to bring in their own pencil cases; they may wish to bring some of the following items: pens, pencils, coloured pencils, gel/felt pens, highlighters, sharpeners, rubbers, whiteboard pens and rulers. Resources are available in the classroom for those children who are unable to/prefer not to have their own pencil case.
Each week, your child will receive a piece of English and/or Maths homework. Children are usually given a week to complete their homework (the submission date is recorded on the activity). Children are also encouraged to carry out research to support their learning in current and upcoming topics.
Children are also encouraged to read regularly. In Class 5, children are allowed to write their own comments in their reading records, but parents can also write comments about their child’s reading. Children are allowed to bring in books from home to read during registration time, however, these must be suitable for school and must challenge/help to improve your child’s reading ability. The school library is also available for children to use and has a wide range of books to choose from.
Children will have PE every Tuesday and it is important that they wear a suitable PE kit (white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and trainers/daps). Children are encouraged to leave their PE kits at school; they can be left on pegs or in their lockers in the classroom. Please remember to label all items of clothing as it is difficult to return lost items to their owners when they are unnamed! Class 5 children will also need to bring in their swimming kits every Thursday in the Autumn term.
Thank you! If you have any questions, please ask.

We enjoyed our recent trip to The Dean Heritage Centre-
This week, Class 5 took part in an exciting Science competition: the children worked in teams of 4 to design a new organism/creature that would be adapted to live in an environment/habitat of their choice. Each team produced a 3D model of their creature and created information posters explaining the adaptations the new organism would have undergone in order to survive in its specific environment. The children really excelled themselves with all their excellent ideas, hard work and enthusiasm.
The competition was judged by the presenter of CBBC’s Beyond Bionic, Andy Torbet, and the Science Department at the Dean Academy, who were all impressed with the standard of work and links to other subjects, such as writing, graphs and data, locating the habitats on the world map as well as the high quality presentation of their work. Well done Class 5.
