We hope you had a good summer and that your child will settle quickly and happily into Year 5. We look forward to working with you and with your child throughout the year.
‘Getting To Know You’ Information
Below is the curriculum overview for the Autumn term. We will be providing you with additional information via email in the coming weeks.
This half term we are asking that pupils wear PE kit into school on the days when they are doing PE. This term both classes will have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
Reading books, diaries and reading records should be brought to school every day. In the meantime, we hope that your child will maintain a regular reading habit at home and complete an activity in their reading record every week. Spellings will be sent out in half-termly blocks as well as the homework grid. We will continue with the Good Times Challenge. This has all been discussed already during lessons.
The Year 5 notice board is next to the Year 5 entrance door on the playground. It provides important information, such as: cake sales, timetables, trip reminders, ‘special’ days. Information can also be gathered from the office when required.
Each class will need two class representatives for the year. Please let your child’s class teacher know as soon as you can if you wish to be a class rep.
Please ensure that the office/welfare has up to date information regarding medication for children to be administered at school. Also please check that medication is within date. This is particularly important for Epipens and asthma inhalers.
If you have moved recently or changed home or mobile telephone number, please let us know. It is vital that we can contact you quickly if your child is unwell.
