WELCOME BACK

13.1.20

Dear Parent,

The Year 5/ 6 team would like to extend a warm welcome back to all our children. We hope the children (and parents) had a well-earned rest, over the Christmas holidays, and wish them the very best for the new year ahead.

Already, the children have settled well, returning to routines, whilst maintaining their excellent learning behaviours around school. Accordingly, we are confident of a great continuation to the academic year.

The following information from last term still applies.

Firstly, all children will be doing PE on Thursday afternoons each week. In addition to this, 6B will have PE on Monday afternoons and 6T/6F on Tuesday afternoons. On these days, we ask that children come to school in their PE uniform. We do expect them to look smart, wearing appropriate unbranded clothing.

Our kit consists of a red school sweatshirt/ cardigan, plain white T- shirt, plain black shorts/black tracksuit bottoms. Children may come to school in school shoes and change into either pumps, if indoors, or trainers if outdoors. Please also make sure that no jewellery is worn for PE and that clothing is clearly labelled.

As in previous years, children are taught Maths and English in single year groups. Mrs Fox and Mrs Quinlan will take year 5, whilst Mr Thornton and Mrs Balmer will teach Year 6. All groups are mixed ability.

Here are the timetables for both year groups. We would like children to be reading and practicing their x table facts regularly, using ‘Timestable Rockstars’, during the week. Children may bring a book from home to read if they are really enjoying one.
