This year, Class 10 will be taught by myself (Mr Darby) and will be supported during afternoons by Mrs Clay. We are also fortunate to have Mr Mills helping in our class this half term. We are all looking forward to the weeks ahead and are confident that we will have a great year together.
The school day for Year 5 commences at 8.45am and finishes at 3pm. Parents/carers are not allowed on site so we ask that you wait at the upper side gate (Hindmarch Drive) at drop off and collection times. Year 5 children are able to walk home but only if they have written consent.
KS2 pupils are entitled to milk, either free or paid, however paid milk MUST be paid on Parent Pay. Please see the school office if you need help signing up to Parent Pay.
Your child will be set a list of words to learn on a Monday in preparation for a spelling test on a Friday. Children will be given Spelling Shed logins to assist with their spelling practice this year.
As well as this, it is important that your child reads at home at least three times a week. Reading diaries will be checked on a Friday. Reading books/records should be brought to school every day. Your child will be rewarded for doing their homework, spellings and reading.
The P.E. days for this half-term are Mondays (Tennis) and Tuesdays (Cricket with Mr. Walker from Castleview). All children should come into school dressed in their P.E. kit and stay in them for the whole day.
