Welcome to Rowling's class page!
(Year 5 2021 - 2022)
Hello and welcome to Rowling Class. My name is Mr Eadie and this is my first year at this wonderful school! A little bit about me: I have two young children who I love spending time with. I also enjoy going on holiday (when I can), and I love football and reading :)
Throughout the year I will upload lots of work, showcasing activities that we participate in. We ask that you please check your child's book bag every night to ensure that you are receiving all the information that we send home. Additional information can also be found here or alternatively feel free to see me at the end of the day.
Please aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week. It will really help them to progress in all curriculum areas. In their book bags, children bring home a staged reading book to share with you. Please remember to make sure reading is an enjoyable experience and record any reading whatsoever in their reading diary. Sharing books is a fantastic way to develop good communication and language skills also. Talking about books further develops their comprehension.
Our class author this year is JK Rowling and I look forward to sharing some of her stories throughout the year!
Children will receive spellings each Friday and a test will be set for the following Friday. For their weekly maths homework, children should log in to TTRockstars.
Homework projects will be set half termly and given out the first week of new half term to be completed over the 6 weeks. This half terms project is based on the Benin Kingdom! Please hand your projects in on Wednesday 20th October, your child can then present them to their class, followed by prizes to be won.
During the autumn term, P.E will take place on Wednesday afternoon and Friday morning.
Our P.E kit includes the following:
During the colder months children can also wear the following:
Please place PE kits in a PE bag. These are then left in school and sent home half-termly in order to be cleaned and returned. Thank you.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me at the end of the day.
