Francesca Wiltshire and Shabnam Kassam would like to welcome you to Year 5 and hope that you all had a fantastic summer! We are really looking forward to working with you to make sure that your children are able to achieve their best through fun, practical learning. If you would like to see us at any time to discuss any issues about your child, please do not hesitate to come and speak to us.
This term, our P.E. days will be:
Thursday (Swimming) and Friday (Outdoor P.E. and Games)
The outdoor P.E. sessions will be led by our fantastic sports coaches Luca and Aaron.
Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit for the time of year!
It is really vital that you help us and your child with homework. Please make sure your child reads for at least 20 minutes each night and brings their book bag to school each day. On Fridays, homework will be sent home to be returned the following Wednesday. Homework might involve tasks / projects that need to be completed with a family member. Please offer your full support to your child in this regard. The children are also able to come and discuss their homework with us, in class, if they need extra help.
Swimming lessons will take place every Thursday.
For swimming, children need their swimming costume, towel, swimming hat and goggles.
They should not wear their costume to school under their uniform as they will be given time to change at the pool.
