Welcome to year 5/6!
I am excited to be part of the year 5/6 team this year.
In our class, we have Mrs Lenham and Mrs Dawson.
Arrive: 8:55-9:05 - via the car park gate
Pick up: 3:05pm
Only pencil cases, school book, diary, named water bottle and lunch boxes are permitted in school. Children may bring in their own sanitiser if they wish to. Nothing else to be bought in from home.
Please find below the timetable for this half term (timings are approximate and it is subject to change depending on special days, weeks and assessments etc...):
PE is on a Thursday afternoon. Children are to come into school wearing their PE kit.
Plain joggers or leggings, navy blue or white T-shirt, a plain hoodie/jacket and trainers will be needed - please note we will be doing PE outside so pumps are not appropriate.
Homework will be sent out on Teams every Friday and is due in the following Wednesday.
Homework will consist of maths and an English task (reading, grammar or spellings) - the children will be able to work on this independently at home as it will be on something we have covered in class.
Spellings will be sent out to practise - we will do tests every half term, but not weekly tests. Please work with your child on any spellings they find tricky. Other spellings will also be covered in class.
Reading - If your child reads 20 times in a half term, they will receive a certificate and a FREE book!
Reading has to be recorded in their diaries and needs to be signed by an adult every week.
Diaries will be checked every Friday.
X tables - the school continues to pay for TTRockstars: please encourage your children to play regularly to increase their fluency in all the times tables.
We are so looking forward to welcoming you back into school once again after lock down. We are incredibly proud of your work, efforts and resilience with your remote learning and how you have taken on the control of your learning and motivation. We'll done to you!
We will be having a lovely welcome back day and then back into normal timetable routine.
Let's excel at and enjoy the last term (and a bit) of the year and the last part of the journey for the wonderful year 6's, as they get ready for year 7 in September!
Mrs Lenham has joined our class for the last part of the year and she is really looking forward to working with you all and getting to know you. I have already told her how fantastic you all are and how lucky we are to have such a great bunch in year 5/6.
See you very soon!
Mrs North, Mrs Dawson and Mrs Lenham.
