Welcome back to the Spring term….

We hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and that you are well rested and ready for the next twelve weeks of the Spring term in  Year 5. I’m so excited to get stuck into 2021 - anything has to be better than 2020! We have another jam-packed term ahead of us: from Vikings to space exploration, Thor to Chris Hadfield and full stops to parenthesis! 

This term I (Mrs Harland) will continue to teach all week, except for Wednesday afternoons, when you will be taught by Mrs Baldwin. Excitingly, this term, Mrs Baldwin will take you swimming on a Wednesday afternoon, and deliver your French/P4C lessons. Mr Dean will continue to work with us until February, taking on some more of the whole-class teaching. Then in February, we will say goodbye to Mr Dean, and hello to Mr Tingle, who has been working with Year 2 so far. We look forward to welcoming him into our class!

So what’s in store...

Our topic this term is EXPLORATION AND DISCOVERY—if you have any photographs, posters, books, models, artefacts etc that may help the children with their learning, please send them in clearly labelled with your child’s name or if you have an expertise in any of  the areas mentioned inside and would like to come and chat to the children or offer some help/ activities, please do not hesitate to contact either myself of Mrs Baldwin.

PE will be on a Tuesday afternoon this term (outdoors weather permitting/where ever possible)—so please make sure that you have the correct school PE kit in school. Trainers for outdoor lessons/break times if needed and school shoes for in the classroom please.  Swimming will be on a Wednesday afternoon this term.

Learning Log homework and Maths will continue to be given out on a Friday and should be returned on a Wednesday. These will continue to be set on Teams. If you would rather have access to the homework on paper copies that’s fine, just let me know. Spellings will be given out in the first week back, and should be practised regularly. As always, reading is the cornerstone of all learning. We recommend reading a wide range of texts both at home and at school, this includes your child’s school reading book and their own personal reading books. Please continue to listen to your child read and sign their reading records as regularly as you can. By Year 5, we expect the children to also record any home reading they do themselves in their reading record, however it would be great if you could sign it to confirm they have read.

AOB: Any jumpers/shoes/kits left in the classroom at the end of a day are placed in the boxes above our coat pegs in class. Please ensure these are named so we can return them. Also water bottles need to be taken home regularly and washed, particularly in the current climate!

We look forward to seeing you all soon, any questions please ask.

Mrs Harland, Mrs Baldwin and Mr Dean
