Dear Parents/Guardians,

Welcome Back! 


I hope you have had an amazing winter break and start to the new year. I cannot believe it is already the Spring term and therefore we are a third of the way through Year Five. 

This terms sees us welcome Mrs Davis to the Year Five team. She has worked with many of the children previously in Year Four and will be teaching RE and French this term as well as running interventions for some pupils. 

In addition, Sprint Term sees us start swimming lessons at Stanground Academy. 
These will be on a Monday morning 11:30-12:30. Each class will have three consecutive one hour sessions. 
Please see the letter for dates and details on kit. 

Furthermore, PE will continue to be on a Monday or Wednesday so please ensure children have both in door and outdoor kit on these days.

Overall this term plans to be a good one with lots of work on the history of Britain!

We will be exploring Britain through the ages; starting with a look
across the North sea which might you give you a scare! Viking long boats are
making their way to shore. This topic will look at leaders through the monarchy
during Anglo-Saxon, Viking and Tudor periods. Pupils will have the opportunity to
immerse themselves in all aspects of British history during this period.

School Uniform:​ 

We feel it is very important for children to be in full school uniform. Not only does it help them to ensure their focus is on their school work, it will prepare them for the strict requirements of secondary school.

Please follow this link to see the required uniform:  http://www.southfieldsprimary.co.uk/page/?title=Uniform&pid=45​​

 

PE Kit:

Our class will be carrying out PE on Mondays or Wednesdays, however there may be other opportunities throughout the week therefore we ask that the children get into the habit of bringing it in on a Monday morning and taking it home on a Friday to be cleaned. They will require both an indoor and outdoor kit.

 

Homework:

In Year 5,children will continue to receive daily spellings, times tables and reading as
they did in middle school. They will also need to complete their daily diary entries
and weekly blue learning log homework. These will be sent home every Friday and
children will have until the following Tuesday to bring them back to school. We
appreciate your support and are here to answer any questions.

Communication:

A strong home-school partnership is so important to the Year team. We both play an integral part in your child’s year 5 journey and I would love for us to communicate openly.

Class DoJois the most effective means of communication between us and I urge you, if you have not already, to connect to this as soon as possible. I am also happy to meet face to face as and when required. I am sure you can appreciate that my schedule is very busy therefore I ask that these meetings be prearranged via Dojo Messenger or through the school office.
