Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to Year 5!
Our topic this term is 'Wales' and this will incorporate Design Technology. We will occasionally send home research projects relating to topic work for the children to complete. Please support your child as best you can with this.
Mathletics and Reading
We are continuing to use 'Mathletics' and we also have a new reading programme, 'Oxford Reading Buddies'. Please encourage your children to use these programmes daily.
PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children should bring their PE kit to school with them on these days . It is important that the children are changing completely for PE to promote good personal hygiene. The PE kit remains unchanged, white t-shirt with black bottoms and black trainers.
School uniform consists of a red jumper / fleece with a white or red shirt underneath. Bottoms should be grey trousers or skirts, NOT tracksuit bottoms or leggings. Shoes must be black.
Reading records need to be filled in DAILY with a comment from your child. Parents do not need to sign this as the reading record is something that your child is expected to take responsibility for. However, please check that your child is doing this properly. Homework is handed out on Thursday and should be returned to school on Monday.
We will have a 'Soft Start' Tuesday - Friday at 8:45am. Please encourage your child to attend this, as it is an excellent opportunity to address misconceptions which might arise from learning the day before and ensures that we start on time promptly at 9am. If there are any questions regarding this, or any aspect of your child's learning or welfare, please make an appointment to meet with me.
Mr R Morgan
