It is Important that your child is in school every day to receive their right to an education (article 28). School starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.05. Please arrive promptly to ensure they don’t miss any learning time.We are trying to get over 96% attendance every week, so please help by getting your child to school on time, every day. Each week the class with the best attendance wins a £10 voucher to spend on resources for the class and a sticker and certificate for all of the children to take home.
We also have Early Bird, who goes home with one child from a class who have had no lates all week!
As the term progresses, the children will recieve homework every Friday in their learning logs linked to what we are doing in class. Please support your child with this and encourage them to research information to become independent learners. If you need support with this please come and see me and I will be happy to explain the challenge set.
Learning Logs will need to be returned every Thursday.
We will be doing at least 1 session of Physical Activity each week. Please bring a PE Kit (black shorts/ jogging bottoms in winter and a white t shirt).
In 5H, PE is every Friday and every other Wednesday.
In 5B, PE is every Monday and every other Wednesday.
The children in Year 5 access our Accellerated Reading scheme. The children are assessed online and given a 'Zone of Proximal Development' (ZPD). It’s really important to try and get back into good habits with reading at home as this will have a positive impact across the curriculum. We ask that children aim to read a least 4 times a week and that this is notes in their reading record. This should mostly be the book at their ZPD, although it is also fine for children to include some of the books they might read from home or the library.
Y5 have made a great start with the number of Dojo points so far this term already. Points are awarded across the week when children are spotted showing rights respecting behaviour with the top 1st, 2nd and 3rd point scorers being recognised in school. These points are reset each week so that everyone starts from the same point on a weekly basis.
