Years 5 & 6
Welcome back! We hope your children are now settled in to the new school year, all the children have made a positive and enthusiastic start to the year.
There are a couple of things to be aware of for the following term:
Homework: The children will be given topic and maths homework each week. This is to be handed in on Mondays, it will be marked and returned on Wednesdays. In addition to this children are still expected to read on a regular basis. As they are older I am not expecting children to read to an adult but they need to be reading regularly at home, it would be useful for me to know if this has happened, with this in mind could parents please sign their reading diary to show they have read at home at least three times in a week.
Timetable: This term we will be swimming on Thursday, PE is on Monday afternoon.
Topic: Our topic this term is World War 2, more detail topic webs will be available on the school website shortly.
Wet weather: All children need waterproofs and wellies in school as playtimes will now be outside whatever the weather.
Water bottles: All children need to bring in water bottles on Monday which will be taken home on Friday.
