Welcome to the Beckham class page. Our PE day is Wednesday.

Beckhams (Year 5)

Our class was to be named after an inspirational sports person. We had a class discussion about what made a sports person inspirational and decided that we wanted somebody who had made a change in the world as well as excelling in their sport. After research and a class vote, we decided we wanted to be named after David Beckham OBE. 


Our teacher is Mr Ring. Our Teaching Assistant is Miss Knott. Mrs Gill teaches us Art and DT and one English lesson a week.


Class Information

  • PE: Currently, Outdoor PE will take place on a Wednesday. Please send your child into school in their PE kits and remove jewellery if they are unable to remove it themselves.
  • Reading: Please remember to keep reading with your child every night. Even if they are able readers please ask them questions and discuss what they are reading. We would like children to read at least 5 times a week (this will include using Reading Plus.) Just a quick note in their reading record book, together with a parent/carer signature, will earn them rewards such as house points.
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. Please ensure your child completes all of their homework every week. 
  • Spelling:  Spelling test on Thursday.

A message from Mr Ring

We have returned to school in our unique bubbles after a long lockdown period. Our experiences were all very different during this time and as we have reunited we have created a puzzle showing that despite the separation we belong together.

Our team

Class Information

  • PE is on a Thursday (swimming) and Friday, please ensure that the children have their PE kit (including trainers or plimsolls) in every day. No earrings please.
  • Homework will be sent home every Friday and should be returned by the following Wednesday. This is to be completed in their homework book. Any homework completed should be neatly presented in this book, just as it would be in their school books. There will be a choice of 9 tasks each week, and they should complete at least 5 by half term. 
  • Spellings to learn in preparation for a test the following Friday. These can be learnt in whatever way they like. A booklet was sent home last year of activities they could do to help with the learning of their spellings.  
  • Reading a school book or a book of their choice at home. As many the children are on much longer books with smaller print, this may be just a few pages each night. Children are expected to read at least fives times a week and this should be recorded in their Home Reading Book by an adult. Please do listen to your children read as often as possible and ask them questions about the text. We check all reading records on Mondays and Wednesdays.  
  • Practising multiplication tables: Children will be learning tables off by heart in class with songs, games, puzzles, etc. We use Times Table Rockstars 5 times a week to test their knowledge. As they become more confident, they start to learn the inverse (division) facts.  You can access TTRockstars at home at https://ttrockstars.com/.
  • Our residential trip to Hudnall Park has been booked for 15th - 17th July 2019. More information will be sent out soon.
