Please request at least 4 different times (in 10 minute intervals from 3:30-5:00pm) with Mrs Graves' and Mr Brady's available dates; Monday 12th October (Mrs Graves), Wednesday 14th October (Mrs Graves), Monday 19th October (Mr Brady), Wednesday 21st October (Mr Brady).
Well, we have begun our new school year and it was wonderful to welcome our new Hedgehog Class back to school. Mr Brady and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the pupils for such a positive start to the year. The class have returned with a good learning attitude and we have begun our journey on our year of what will be the new normal. Your child may have discussed some differences about our class with you, but we aim to work hard as always in Year 5, whatever we face, and we are looking forward to the year ahead.
Reading will continue to play a major role in your child’s education this year and we will aim to organise reading books as soon as possible. Reading books will work a little differently this year. Hedgehog Class will get the opportunity to change their book once a week on WEDNESDAY. This is to allow for books to come in from all children and be quarantined for 72 hours before being put back in the boxes for borrowing.
For those children reading books of longer lengths this may not present any difficulty. For those reading books of a shorter length you may find that you are finishing your book before Wednesday. I shall be adding ideas of activities your child can do with their reading book to help him/her develop their understanding of the text further to the website. Your child may also read books from home; these books can be added to your child’s Reading Record and signatures for these books will count towards the expected minimum of 2 signatures per week.
Another opportunity for finding books to read is to join Boston Library online. From the following website you can access ebooks, eaudiobooks and emagazines for free. All you need is to be a member of the library (which is free to join) and a pin number which is available from the library. This is a fantastic resource and one I use regularly myself.
