Dear Parents/Carers,


A warm welcome back!  We hope you had a fantastic half term break  and are looking forward to working with you again over the next autumn term 2.  Do come in any day after school if you have any concerns or queries.


I am looking forward to continue to observe your children mature into Year 5 and meet the expectations and well-mannered behaviour they develop to create a model for the rest of the school alongside Year 6. We will be strengthening our multiplication and division skills in mathematics, extended pieces of writing using new Y5 writing skills like relative clauses and modal verbs.  Guitar lessons will continue on Wednesdays as will our weekly class PE lesson with the coach. Do look at the new Year 5 curriculum map for learning content this half term.


Swimming continues this Friday 25th September and children will need to bring a towel, swimsuit and swim hat for those with long hair.


As usual, homework will be set on Wednesdays and due in the following Wednesday unless stated otherwise on the website. There will also continue to be weekly times table check-ups on Fridays to ensure fluency and speed.  Spelling tests will be on Thursdays also.


Looking forward to updating you all soon.


Yours faithfully,

Mrs Hill
