Sleights’ oldest children who are in year 6 (aged 10 and 11) are in Leaders. Children in Leaders are taught by Mrs Walker and are supported by Mr Everall.
Being a Leader means lots of responsibility, being role models around school at all times. Leaders have their own building on the playground.
Over the course of the week, Leaders learn lots of exciting things. They have English, Mathematics and guided reading every day.
This term, Leaders take part in dance every Tuesday afternoon with Hannah Verity. On Wednesday afternoons, Leaders do RE and geography with Mr Everall and on a Thursday afternoon, they have a computing session with Mrs Gurney, looking at animation.
Leaders love to read; sharing guided books, class texts and individual reading books. Individual books are brought to school daily and changed once the book has been read (this might be longer than usual now the books are longer!)
Sumdog is set weekly on a Thursday, closing the following Wednesday morning, and includes a maths and grammar activity.
Spellings are set on a Monday, taught daily in school, and tested on a Friday. A Sumdog activity to support your child's spellings is also available weekly from Monday.
Welcome to the Discoverers class page 😀
In our class we are taught by Mrs Taylor, who is supported by Mrs Excelby.
We are in years 4 and 5, which means that we are 8 turning 9, and 9 turning 10 (we love to share our birthdays).
We have busy weeks in here, with English and Mathematics lessons taught daily, and some lessons which happen once a week: swimming on a Tuesday, computing with Mrs Gurney and Sports with Mr Gokool on a Wednesday and magical music on a Thursday.
We bring our books and reading records to school each day, and change them when we have finished reading them. This happens during the week when we share our books with Mrs Taylor or Mrs Excelby.
Each week, homework is set up for us on Sumdog. Sumdog is a fun website, which helps us practice our maths skills through playing games. It is set up for us to complete on a Thursday. We also get spelling homework too. This happens every other Thursday, and we are tested on the spellings during the Tuesday of the second week. We practice our spellings during the week at school, too.
Below, you will find blogs that we write, to share all of the special memories we make in this class. Feel free to check them out 😀
