Welcome back! We hope you’ve all had a fun but relaxing time over the past couple of weeks and are ready to start the new term with a bang. This term is busy – as always – and starts with an exciting new thematic topic: Full of beans. In addition to this, we look forward to building on our knowledge of Victorian Britain and attend a trip to Blists Hill this will support our Thematic topic in Summer 2; ‘British Bulldog’.

Purple creative homework books will continue this term. This homework book will be sent home with your child this Friday – please look out for this! The insert to the book will provide further information about this and your child will have 2 weeks to complete this. The activities set are to continue to support the children’s learning from school at home.

Children will, as always, be expected to read at home and complete their reading Passport weekly activities. Any comments are always welcomed and communication between yourselves and class teacher is always helpful.

Phonics will continue to be ability set within Year 5, and will take place twice per week. Your child may be with either Mrs Harper or Ms Jones. Children will receive 10 spellings on a Monday, to be tested on the following Monday. Additionally, children will also receive 10 age related spellings from myself, which will be given out on a Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday (unless specified).

PE will continue to take place on a Wednesday and Friday, please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school. White round neck t-shirt, shorts (preferably black or navy) and black pumps. It would also be appreciated if all uniform (including PE kit and pumps) is labelled with your child’s full name and class. This should be kept in school each half term to ensure less incidence of forgotten kit. As in the Spring term, Year 5 will continue to receive each lesson from Soccer 2000. Please can we remind parents that jewellery should not be worn in school, with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions or please provide your child with plasters.

The gate to the playground will continue to be opened at 8.45am and closed at 8.55am. Late children will need to report to the main office.

If you have any questions/queries now or throughout the year, please do not hesitate to speak to us.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Harper & Mrs Kilpatrick
