Dear Year 5/6 parents/carers,
I hope you feel that your child has settled well into their new class and has enjoyed their first week. I extend a warm welcome to you all as parents/carers and have detailed a few pieces of information below which I hope you find useful.
I will be your child’s main teacher taking full responsibility for the teaching, planning and curriculum delivery. I will be assisted within the Classroom by Mr Timmis and Miss Moore.
The topics for this term are as follows:
Maths: Number and Place value. Mental calculations. Addition and subtraction - formal written methods. Geometry - properties of shape Multiplication and division
Science: Healthy Eating.
Topic: Extreme Earth
The children will have specific subject teachers for English, D.T and Music.
Alongside the curriculum there will be a number of different opportunities for your child to partake in and you will be informed of these as they arise.
P.E. takes place on a Monday and Tuesday. For these activities the school can provide the appropriate kit however you can provide your own if you wish.
There are times during the year when a change of clothing will be required, you will be informed of these when they arise however it is useful if you could provide a change of clothing that could be kept in school then this will be at hand when required.
There are always lots of things happening in school so keep a close eye on the school website for dates and details of achievement assemblies etc.
We are always very keen to give your children opportunities outside of school and with this in mind it is school policy to ask for a weekly £1 donation which goes towards the cost of outside experiences this can be paid through the ‘Parent Pay’ scheme.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me by phone or through the use of the daily journal if you have any questions, worries or concerns. An open communication both ways is essential in maintaining a positive relationship. I hope your child enjoys their time in our class and has a happy and successful year.
