Dear Parents/Carers,


A warm welcome back!  We hope you had a fantastic summer and are looking forward to working with you again over the next academic year.  Do come in any day after school if you have any concerns or queries.


I am looking forward to observe your children mature into Year 5 and meet the expectations and well-mannered behaviour they develop to create a model for the rest of the school alongside Year 6. Already we are settling in well and have started place value work in mathematics, extended pieces of writing and replicas of Van Gough’s ART. Do look at the Year 5 overview below to famalirise yourself with the expectations for Year 5.


Swimming begins next Friday 6th September and children will need to bring a towel, swimsuit and swim hat for those with long hair.


Homework will be set on Wednesdays and due in the following Wednesday unless stated otherwise on the website. The letter about the London trip was sent yesterday and can be found on the Year 6 class page. There will be weekly times table check-ups on Fridays to ensure fluency and speed.  Spelling tests will be on Wednesdays also.


Looking forward to updating you all soon.


Yours faithfully,

Mrs Hill
