Welcome to Phoenix 2021-2022!


Hello! I am Mrs Hatcher - the year five and six class teacher. Mrs Cockburn is our brilliant teaching assistant, who we are very lucky to have helping in our class this year.


As soon as the children arrive at school they complete a 'Quick Maths' challenge - this helps to build up our mental maths skills ready to apply to problem solving. It is vital that children arrive at school on time so they don't miss this important part of the day! 


We spend our mornings focused on our literacy and maths and the afternoons are science or non-core subjects. 


In Phoenix, we love reading and I love reading aloud to the class - this half term we are reading 'Holes' by Louis Sachar and we are going to complete lots of writing activities around the story. For science, we are learning about 'forces' and aim to complete lots of practical activities to learn more about them. 


Things you can do to help your child to learn well in school:

  • encourage good organisation and have good routines in place
  • spend time reading together daily
  • ensure your child does their homework
  • enjoy conversations around any home activity or outing 
  • be a curious role model


We hope you check this page frequently to keep up to date with the learning in Phoenix Class!
