Autumn Term 2019
Welcome back to school for the Autumn Term and to year 5.
We hope you had a lovely summer holiday seeing new things and spending time with your family and friends. Our first half-term unit is ‘To the Stars.’ Please see the topic map for details. We are looking forward to a busy but interesting year.
PE is twice a week – swimming on a Tuesday afternoon and Outdoor Games, Gymnastics or dance on a Friday afternoon. Please ensure that your child has an indoor and outdoor PE kit, including training shoes, in school as we will also have the daily mile and outdoor activities linked to our topics. Due to the changeable weather, please also send your child to school with a waterproof coat or jacket.
Please also provide an apron or a cover up for art lessons. As with all belongings, please ensure that this is named.
Home learning will be handed out on Thursdays and is due back on Tuesdays. If your child is struggling to complete any of the home learning tasks, please let us know. There is an ongoing task linked to the topic, so please look out for that.
Reading books and reading records should be in school every day. As is usual, children in year 5 may bring pencil cases to school; we aim for children to take responsibility for their own belongings.
Finally, if you have any concerns please ask to see one of us as we want your children to be happy and ready to learn.
