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.
