Welcome to Humber Class

The children work together to achieve their best.

Staffing:

The teacher in Humber class is Mr Willson and the teaching assistants are Mrs Eckley and Mrs Hand.

Please pop in to see us if you have any queries. The end of the day is generally best, as we can give you more time.

During the week we have the following activities:

P.E – is on a Tuesday afternoon with Mr Jeff and Wednesday afternoon with Mr Willson. It would be really helpful if your child brings their named P.E kit in on a Monday and takes it home on a Friday therefore they can join in any clubs at lunchtime and have it in school for enrichment on Thursday after school.

Restorative Circle Time – Mrs Eckley takes the class for a restorative circle session on a Tuesday afternoon. The circle is a time for children to discuss the theme of the week, celebrate successes and find solutions to any problems.

Spanish, Music, Computing and R.E – Children take part in activities on a Thursday afternoon for the above subjects. We are really lucky to have specialist Spanish and Music teachers who come into school to teach those subjects.

Enrichment  is on a Thursday afternoon 3:15-4:15pm for all children in Humber Class which will allow them to participate in extra-curricular activities with specialist teachers.

Boosters – There will be a booster session for all Year 6 children on a Monday for maths.Your children are welcome any morning from 8:30am to use their chromebooks for their homework projects or to practise NumberGym.

Reading  – Children take part in guided reading sessions every day.  We listen to children read in groups and these sessions give the children time to listen to others read, question and be questioned about what they have read and how the author has written in a certain way.  Because we make notes on these sessions in guided reading folders, we do not write them up in the children’s planners.

Individual reading books can be changed by your child daily. If your child keeps forgetting to change their book, please let us know.  Reading is part of your child’s homework and they have a challenge to read at least five times a week. Please would you listen to your child read so that you can ask him/her questions and help them improve their understanding and fluency.  We would be grateful if you could then write a note in their planner to say they have read to you.

Homework– Homework projects will be set every few weeks linked to our topic.  Children will also be set spellings for each week and daily reading.

Bloomz is a fantastic way of communicating with parents so please ask one of the KS2 team to sign up. You will be able to view your child’s learning and it will also give you regular updates, copies of letters and homework.
