Mrs Loakes Class 15

Welcome to Class 15’s webpage

Hi, my name is Mrs Loakes and I am Class 15’s teacher. In Class 15, children are also supported by Mrs Burne, Mrs Turner and Mrs Collingwood.


Year 5’s topic is 'In The Shadow of the Wrekin'.

During the Spring Term, we will be learning about the Second World War. We will look at how the actions from WW1 led to WW2 and the changes the war made to people's lives.


The School Day:

  • Children should be dropped off at their class door at 8.40am and registration closes at 8.45am. The gates will be locked at 8.45am. Pupils arriving after this time will be required to go through the office and will be recorded as late.
  • Pick up time will be 3.15pm. Children left behind after 3.25pm may be asked to join After School Club and a charge will be applied.
  • Please continue to follow the one-way system in place to avoid bottlenecks at gates.
  • Each day the children need a coat, water bottle and packed lunch if they are not having a school dinner.
  • Suitable footwear – every day we will encourage the children to take part in the daily mile or other physical activities, so they need comfortable, safe footwear to do so.
  • Slippers can be left in school for children to change into.
  • All children need to have wellies and waterproofs in school, to protect their school uniform, to take part in outdoor learning which will be timetabled every MONDAY.
  • All uniform including outdoor clothing needs to be named.


PE days:

  • All pupils need to bring an appropriate PE Kit on their allocated PE days.  Class 15 will do PE on a TUESDAY.  
  • Track suit for outdoor winter games.
  • Plain black shorts/cycling shorts or leggings.
  • A school Royal Blue short or long sleeved T-shirt which can be purchased via the school website/ uniform shop or a plain blue or white top can be worn.
  • Training shoes suitable for outdoor games on the field and playground.
  • Swimming costume / trunks and towel - lightweight, long sleeve t shirts and leggings can be worn if necessary, for religious/cultural reasons. Class 15's swimming will be on THURSDAY mornings.



Reading and Learning at home:

  • Reading – Children must aim to read every day at home–we recommend at least ten minutes per day. However, the more a child reads at home, the more progress they will make. If an adult is unable to listen to their child read at home, Year 5 pupils can independently record their reading into their diary. Dojos will be given for each diary entry that is recorded into their diary.
  • Maths and spelling activities to be shared weekly by Dojo. 
  • Here are some useful websites:

if you child has lost their TTRockstars login, please let Mrs Loakes know and she will send out a new one.

Keeping in touch:

We will continue to use Dojo as a way of keeping in touch. 


We will do our best to respond in a timely manner but please bear in mind that during the school day we are focused on teaching and learning with your children, and we do not monitor Dojo throughout the evening.
