Remembrance Day

Today, Brandy Class paid their respects to those who lost their lives in war. We started by writing letters to our local men and women before taking them to the Wroxall Memorial to read out. We were guided around the church to view the memorials to commemorate one hundred years since the end of world war one. In the afternoon the children were given a bulb to plant on the school field which we hope will form one large cross by springtime.

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school after what I hope was an enjoyable autumn break. Last half term the children worked very hard with great enthusiasm on our spy topic. We hope to keep this going with our new topic The Shang Dynasty, more details of which are found below

A Few Reminders:

Please continue to hear your child read regularly. All pupils should be reading, preferably to an adult, at home each day and writing down the page numbers in their Reading Record books. Please could parents/carers view and sign their reading records as they are a good way for home and school to keep in contact. The spelling test will be on a Monday and the times table badge tests will be on a Friday.  Homework tasks will be sent home in the green book on a Monday and due in the following Monday. Each week the children will receive: A copy of their weekly spellings, a maths task and a topic task. This will be due each Monday and as before, children can choose which topic task to complete.

Dates for your diary:

Tuesday 30th October – Parents Evening 6-8pm

Wednesday 31st October – Parents Evening 3-5pm

Monday 5th November – School Closed – Staff Training Day

Thursday 22nd November – Flu Clinic in School

Friday 7th December – Christmas Fair

More dates will be added throughout the term. Keep your eye on the school website for updates. Many thanks for your continued support. Please book a slot of parents evening if you have not already done so. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Kind regards,

Welcome!

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school after what I hope was a relaxing and warm summer break. I’m very much looking forward to working with you and your children over the year ahead. We will start the year with an exciting topic called Spies and Gadgets, more details of which are found below.

Please continue to hear your child read regularly. All pupils should be reading to themselves or preferably an adult at home each day and note down the page numbers in their Reading Record books. Please could parents/carers view and sign their reading records as they are a good way for home and school to keep in contact.

 

Homework tasks: All homework will be sent home in the green book on a Monday and due in the following Monday. Each week the children will receive:

  • A copy of their weekly spellings,
  • A maths task,
  • A topic task.

 

The children will be able to choose which topic task they complete each week from a list stuck in their book. These tasks are designed to be creative and fun. The tasks do not have to be completed in the book as your child may wish to work on the computer or using art materials. I appreciate that the homework is a slight step up from year four but this is a gradual increase as the children will have yet more to complete in year six. The spelling test will be on a Monday and the times table badge tests will be on a Friday.

Many thanks for your support and I hope the children enjoy being back at school. If you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

More detailed planning can be found on the planning tab above.

 

Kind regards,
