Hello and welcome back to Term 2.
We will not be swimming this term. Instead, we will be doing indoor PE on Tuesday and Forest School on Thursday afternoon. Your child will need a change of clothes and footwear for forest school. It is best to bring to school old clothes and wellies so they can change before participating in the activities and then put their uniforms back on when we return..
Spellings have been given to your child today ready for the test on Friday.
Welcome Chameleon Class of 2019-20!
Hello. My name is Mrs Watts and I started teaching Year 5 Elephants in Term 2 (2018) as a job share and I am looking forward to being part of the Year 4 team with Mrs Welch in Iguana Class. Our teaching assistant will be Mrs Merchant who is a fabulous experienced teaching assistant at Barley Close.
Important Days to note: THURSDAY for PE
Don't forget your child can wear their PE kit to school on that day.
Your PE kit should include black shorts and a white t-shirt and black daps or trainers. Jogging bottoms and a jumper are also handy as we do PE outdoors as well. Some older clothes and shoes would be advisable for this PE session.
Please also remember that if your child wears earrings, then they need to be taken out that morning before school.
WEDNESDAY for swimming until half term.
Spellings will be given out on Friday and then tested the following Friday. Please encourage them to practise them every day so they know them before the test.
Please continue to hear your child read and sign their reading record books. The school expect children to read at least 3 times a week and there is a raffle draw every week. Please remember to send their reading records in on a Monday and Thursday so they can be checked. For every child who does read at least 3 times in a week, the class will receive 30 seconds of extra play so that could be a maximum of 15 minutes, if they all read!
TTRS and My Maths logins have been given to the children and it's great to see so many of them enjoying these activities at home.
It has been great to meet so many of you already and I look forward to getting to know you and your families this year.
Don't forget to come and see me if you are concerned about anything or just want to talk. I am available at the end of the school day.
Let's hope it will be a year full of fun and learning.
Spellings for week beginning 7th October:
