Morpurgo (Year 5)

Welcome to Morpurgo Class

Mrs Payne and Miss Jennings





Mrs Payne teaches on a Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday; Miss Jennings teaches on a Thursday.

Mrs Wallis will be in class all week.


We have PE with Mrs Fielding each Wednesday. However, it is useful if PE kits are in school every day as there may be other occasions when a PE kit is needed.


Home Learning

READ!  READ!  READ!  Get hooked on books. Choose one you like and start by trying to  read for at least ten minutes every night. Try and build up your reading stamina so that each week you read for a little longer. The key is to choose something that you will enjoy. 

REMEMBER record your reading in your B H B of E.


Monday      A reading comprehension task will be sent home on a Monday and should be                    handed in on the following Friday. Each child has a Home Learning Book in                      which to complete this work.

Friday     A maths home learning task will be set every Friday and should be                                  completed by the following Wednesday. Each child has a Home Learning                        folder for maths.


There is a Home Learning Box at the back of the class room where all finished home learning should be placed.

We have lots of exciting things to learn about. This term your brain will get stronger.

In Computing the children continue to consider how to keep themselves safe when working online or using their mobile phones. It is something that we believe is very important and the children regularly have time to reinforce their knowledge of the ways to ensure they stay safe and happy whilst enjoying time on the computers.
