Doves

 

Doves class is taught by Mr Shang and he is funny. We work hard, but our teacher makes learning really exciting. For good behaviour ,we get prize tickets and at the end of the week we get to pick a treat if we get drawn out of the bucket. 

Welcome to Doves

We are a mixed class of years 5 and 6. Our teacher is Mr Shang and we are regularly helped by Mrs Fogg and Mrs Allen. Doves class understand that we are some of the oldest in the school and therefore, we have lots of responsibilities to help keep the school running smoothly and to set a good example for the younger children of the school.

Homework

Reading: Your child will take a STAR Reader test each term which will determine which colour book-band they are on. We ask that they bring their school reading book home each day and that they spend time reading at home. When your child has finished a book, they will be able to take an Accelerated Reader quiz.

Spelling: Spelling lists linked to work in school will be given to your child on a Monday. The children will have an assessment of these words on a Friday. A home spelling book will be sent home for your child to practise their spellings (we will show the children how to use this book in school). Please can we ask that the home spelling book is brought into school each day.

PE (PE kit)

PE days are changeable, therefore it’s best to make sure PE kit (including outdoor clothing and trainers)are in school every day. Kit is sent home for washing every Friday and should be returned to school on Monday morning.

Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed. 

Trips and Visits

We are very lucky to be going on some fantastic trips this year and we will be taking part in some memorable experiences.  These include, having a planetarium in our school hall, a visit to Bletchley Park and the Peterborough Museum and we will be selling our own hand-made products in our Mini Enterprise topic. 

Class Assemblies and Performances

Every term (except for summer, due to our production) we will present a class assembly to our parents and carers, which will take place on a Friday at 3pm.
