Fireflies 2019 - 2020
Mr A Stackhouse
Welcome to Year 4/5!
In Fireflies we strive to acheive the best of our potential through experiencing a rich and balanced curriculum that will excite, engage and create lots of fun whilst learning.
Please take a look at our page and try out some of the homework links we have put on for you. If you have any questions, please feel free to call and speak to myself or Mr Bester.
Homework will be given every Monday and it is due back in on Friday. Please make sure you sign your child's Reading Record when homework is completed. Why not encourage your child to take advantage of our homework club?
Spellings will be given each Wednesday to be learnt ready for the spelling test the following Wednesday. Try quizzing one another at home?
Reading Books Reading is amazing and can open up whole new worlds. It's so important that your child reads every single day. In Year 4/5 it is expected that children read between 15-20 minutes a day. Every child needs their reading book in school every day. Please sign your child's reading record each time they have read.
P.E Fireflies have PE on a Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure they have their named kit in school ready.
The curriculum map outlines your child's learning topics for the year.
