Welcome back Class 5/6!
I have had the most wonderful first week of school getting to know each and every one of you. You would never have guessed that you have had almost six months away from school! I am so incredibly proud of you all for how well you have readjusted back to school life.
Our PE days will be every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child arrives to school wearing their
PE kit on those days. Earrings should be removed before coming to school if the children cannot remove them themselves.
Reading diaries and reading books have now been distributed, and they should be brought into school daily. In due course, homework and spellings will also start up again. In addition to children bringing home their own copy of these, they will also be updated onto our class page (just in case we have any dogs that like to eat homework!). New spelling words will be given to the children every Thursday, and they will be tested the following Friday. This gives the children 8 days to practise!
Homework will be given to children on Thursday afternoon and should be returned to school on the Monday morning. This means that the children can ask for support should they need any on the Friday, but also that the homework can be quarantined for the appropriate number of days to allow for marking and redistribution.
I feel so lucky to be your children's teacher this year, and I know that we are going to have so much fun together. Please do not hesitate to send the school office an email if you have any questions or concerns at all. We are more than happy to ease your worries and support you in any way we can.
