Mr Dallas Hyatt and Mrs Kathlene Fenton are sharing the Yr 5/6 class. Mrs Fenton will be teaching Monday, Tuesday and every Wednesday while Mr Hyatt will be teaching every Thursday and Friday.
Homework is sent home on Wednesday (along with children’s home readers) and will be collected every Monday. The fortnightly spelling tests will take place every second Friday. It is expected that every child completes their homework and hands it in on-time.
It is important that your child reads every night. It doesn’t have to be a book, it can be a magazine, newspaper,etc. This is an important part of their overall language development.
Students should take pride in their work, so all workbooks should be covered. When covering your child’s books in decorative paper please also use a plastic book cover or contact to give it a longer life. The covering and labelling of your child’s books makes it easier when handing out and collecting in class.
At the beginning of the year students should have 4 x lead pencils, ruler, eraser, coloured pencils, glue and scissors. We ask that you replace these when it becomes necessary. A note will be sent out when your child requires equipment.
Students will be required to bring in a paint shirt (labelled with their name on it) to avoid paint on school clothing. It would also be appreciated if every child could bring in a box of tissues for the class to share.
Library is every Thursday and students MUST have a library bag to be able to borrow books from the library.
P.E. / Sport
P.E. is held on Tuesday afternoon and Sport on Friday afternoon. Students are required to wear their sports uniform on these days.
Help your child stay safe in the sun by ensuring they have their school hat everyday and by wearing sunscreen.
No hat equals no play.
Please label all your child’s uniform, hat, lunch box, bag etc clearly with their name to help minimise lost property and encourage them to put all of their things back in their bag when they have finished eating or take clothing off.
