Welcome to our school characterised by the Christian Values of Honesty, Forgiveness, Compassion and Love

Aspiring and achieving together

Year 5/6

Welcome back to a new school year. Firstly, I would like to thank you all for the many lovely, thoughtful presents and cards with such kind words in them. It was very kind and it is much appreciated. I hope you all had a wonderful summer break and have managed to fit in lots of exciting things as well as some time to relax.

I am very excited as we embark on this new school year. The children are definitely ready for the challenges and responsibilities that come with being "top of the school."

Our topic this term is, "Calling All Heroes," with a focus on The Romans. A trip to the library with your child to find some non fiction books on The Romans would support the work they do in class. A topic web can be viewed below so you can see what we will be learning this term.

At the end of last year I emphasised the importance of knowing all times tables at speed. We had a test and identified areas to work on which I hope the children have done over the summer. They also had some spellings to begin to work on. These are areas which you could support your child at home as well as with daily reading by themselves but also to an adult so that a discussion about the text can be had with your child. I have attached a copy of a book mark which the children will bring home with them which has some ideas of questions you could ask your child when reading with them.

Homework will continue to come home on a Friday to be handed in by the following Wednesday and PE days this year will be Monday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has a PE kit of shorts, Tshirt and trainers and a sweatshirt and jogging bottoms/leggings for colder weather.

We will be going on a trip this term to develop our understanding of the Romans to The Corinium Museum in Cirencester. A parentmail will be sent to you with more details shortly.

If you have any queries please do come and talk to me after school.
