Mr Evens's Class

WELCOME TO YEAR 5 AND MR EVENS' CLASS!

Term 3,.. Happy New Year!

Firstly, welcome to 2018! I sincerely hope that you had a fun and restful Christmas break and Santa brought you everything you have wished for. The children thoroughly deserved the time off and I cannot wait for the challenges ahead, which I am sure the children will overcome.

I promise that I will always give 100% to ensure that every child makes progress but most importantly enjoy coming into my classroom. At the same time, I expect children to also give their all and to adhere to the school rules and charter, which we have created and signed. A copy of the charter can be seen in the attachments.

There's so much going on this term already, including our exciting trip to the Houses of Parliament! Please check regularly at the 'Dates for your Diary' section of this page for updates.

Our teaching assistant is Mrs. Sarah Bailey.

If you have any questions or issues, I am ususally available after school Alternatively, you can email me on Gavin.Evens@almondsburyprimary.co.uk

Kind regards,

Gavin Evens

HOMEWORK

In Year 5, homework is given out each Friday. This will alternate between English and maths. This is to start to nurture children towards secondary school life and to start to gain independence.

The expectation is to give the homework a go and to hand it in by the deadline date. The homework set will not be anything that will take most of the children's spare time and will be aimed to the children's needs and what is covered in class.

Furthermore, reading records and spelling letters have been given out. I am not expecting children to read and learn their spellings for hours a day. However, reading learning spellings little and often would be beneficial as it makes a huge difference to their writing. Please ensure that any reading is recorded in their reading records.

Thank you for your support.
