Attendance

It is Important that your child is in school every day.

There are 2 start times each day- if your child's surname begins with A-L, they will be in school 9am-3pm.  If they start with a M-Z will be in from 9.30am-3.30pm

We are trying to get 100% attendance every week, so please help by getting your child to school on time, every day. 

Learning Logs

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.

PE

We will be doing at least 2 sessions of Physical Activity each week.  This half term, we are not asking children to bring in a PE kit, but we will be reviewing this regularly in line with our Covid risk assessment. 

Reading

Our year 5 pupils 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.

ClassDojo

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.
