Welcome to Mrs Dawson’s Class page

Hello, I’m Mrs Dawson. Welcome to our class page

I teach Years 5 & 6 at St. Oswald’s CE Primary School, and I’m the maths lead. This is my 7th year at St. Oswald’s.

Homework; Your child will receive a piece of Maths and English homework each week in their CGP booklets. The children will write the pages that they need to complete in their reading record every Friday and it should be returned to school by the following THURSDAY so that I can mark it. Please support and encourage your child to do their homework as independently as they can, we are really striving for that independence and personal responsibility now we are Juniors.

Spellings: Your child will get a new set of spellings every Friday.  Take some time to practice these with your child, little and often is best. We use lots of different ways to learn our spellings in class – ‘pyramid words’ are always a popular choice!

Times Tables; Each week your child will have a x table to learn. Please ensure your child is practicing these at home ready for their x table test on a FRIDAY. Remember to use the Times Table Rockstars app to support your child with this – fun and interactive way to practise and learn your multiplication and division facts. If you go to the Arena, you can play against your friends!

Reading;  Please encourage your child to reads for at least 10 minutes EVERY NIGHT at home. Please record this in your child’s reading record. In our class we understand that it is important to have a ‘love for reading’. Therefore, if your child is not enjoying their book, please do let me know and they are more than welcome to change their book.

PE Days; Please make sure your child’s PE kit remains in school throughout the half term. We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon at the Leisure Centre. Please remember no earrings are allowed and long hair needs to be tied up.


Your child can bring a healthy snack to school to eat at breaktime – please send in fruit. No crisps or sweet, thank you
