We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable summer break and we would like to welcome the children back, ready for the autumn term.

During this term, the children will be learning about ‘Cosmic Cosmos’ in their topic lessons, please refer to the curriculum overview for more information. In Science, the children will be studying space and forces. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations.

Please can we remember that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with health and safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days, the children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.

Year 5 PE sessions are:
Tuesdays and Wednesdays

Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. Can we also remind parents that children will need pumps included in their indoor PE kit and trainers included in their outdoor PE kits.

Year 5 homework will consist of weekly spellings and home reading. The children will have homework to complete in their books weekly and please can you ensure you are hearing them read for 10 minutes daily.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact school.

We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
