Mrs Martin's and Mrs Evans' Class
Welcome to Class 2EM's class page. We are an enthusiastic and hardworking group of Year 6 children who love to learn new things and improve on our current learning!
Our class teachers are Mrs Martin and Mrs Evans. Mrs Haslam helps us with our learning each day during English and Maths lessons. In Term 2 we are fortunate to have Miss Smith, a student teacher, working with us too.
We are also really lucky to have Spanish lessons with Mrs Lauder every week and our ICT taught by Mr Whalley too.
The school library is open each morning and lunchtime for us to change our reading books when we have finished them. We note down the page numbers we have read and ask an adult from home to sign the relevant part in our reading diaries. Mrs Martin will collect our reading diaries on a Monday morning to check they have been signed. The school expectation is for reading diaries to be signed at least 3 times a week, however lots of children manage to read every day which is brilliant! It is important that we bring our school bags to school everyday to collect letters and other important information.
We are given Maths homework every Wednesday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Monday to be marked. Mrs Martin will also send our English homework out on a Friday. This work needs to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.
Spellings for each week are in our planners. Each week we should practise at home 4 times and there is space for this in our planners. However, if spellings are completed in another manner (iPads, notebooks etc.) our parents indicate how many times we have done this and we ask them to ensure that they sign the spelling page in our planner. Spelling tests take place on Fridays.
We need to have PE kits in school throughout the week. It is also very important that all of our belongings are clearly named. If we are wearing earrings, we need to ensure that we are able to remove them for PE or ask our parents/carers to provide tape for them to be covered up to meet health and safety recommendations. If we have hair below our shoulders, it should be tied back for PE and our tights should be replaced with socks for PE lessons.
It is important that we bring a water bottle to school every day, filled with fresh water. In addition, we are allowed to bring a healthy snack for break time if we wish. These snacks should meet the agreed list: fruit, vegetables, cheese or yoghurt.
Welcome Back to the New School Year.
