Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome back to school after the half-term break. Time has passed so quickly and we are now half way through year five. Last half term the children produced some excellent work for our space topic and I hope this will continue in our new topic theme ‘British Maritime History’ which is primarily a History based topic. Please see the topic web below for an outline of the learning we will cover.
Thank you for ensuring your child is reading regularly. Their enjoyment of reading really does effect the quality of writing and reading comprehension in school. Remember, once the child has read at home thirty times they can choose to ‘spend’ these on a special prize or save until they have read one hundred and fifty times when they will be able to go on a special trip.
Thank you also for the effort that has gone into the homework so far. The practise of maths and spellings at home is improving the children’s learning in school. I always enjoy coming in on a Monday morning to see what amazing tasks the children have completed. Your child will have new tasks stuck in their homework book and as usual, all homework will be due on a Monday morning.
PE day will change during the half-term as we have been given the opportunity to spend some PE sessions at Tapnell Farm. Thank you Mr Woodhouse for organising this. Make sure your kit is in school every day.
