Welcome to Phoenix 2019-2020!
Hello! I am Mrs Hatcher - the year five and six class teacher. Mrs Burton and Mrs Cockburn are our brilliant teaching assistants, who we are very lucky to have helping in our class this year.
Each day is action-packed and full of learning. In the mornings, we concentrate on our literacy, including SPAG (spelling, grammar and punctuation), reading and writing creatively across different text types. Also, we complete daily mental maths sessions using a fun passport as well as completing daily written arithmetic, followed by a maths lesson. Our afternoons are when we do non-core subjects including science, art, ICT, DT, projects, history and geography. Where possible, we complete our learning in a cross-curricular, topic-based fashion.
This term, we are focusing on Brazil as part of our whole school topic: 'Curious About Carnival'. We will be finding lots of different cross-curricular writing opportunities as well conducting lots of research to bring this topic to life.
Please encourage your child to read daily at home; complete spelling and maths passport and complete their homework as this will help with all areas of their learning.
We hope you check this page frequently to keep up to date with the learning in Phoenix Class!

Ways you could help your child with their learning:
Please read as often as you can with your child. Ask them lots of questions as this helps to engage them in the text and you can check they understand what they are reading.
Times tables! These are very important and crop up in all areas of maths. Please help your child to learn them.
Please work on your child's maths and spelling passports.
