Welcome back to school everybody! I was so excited to see the children again this morning. The return to school will evoke a number of feelings for everyone, which is completely understandable. The children and I discussed this morning that there will be a number of things which they will have to get used to again, such as wearing a school uniform and being surrounded by other children. If your child is feeling overwhelmed or worried then please let me know so we can work out a way to best support them.
Our theme this term is ‘War of the Worlds’. It is a history based unit which the children seem very excited about already. The knowledge organiser can be found below.
PE days have returned to ‘T days’ (Tuesday and Thursday). We will be going outside for our PE lessons as much as possible so please ensure that your child brings warm enough clothes and they have a bottle of water.
I am aware that the children have been spending an increased amount of time on their devices so I am not setting homework on MyMaths or Timestable Rockstar for the rest of this term. Instead, I would encourage your child to read their book (our 5 reads challenge is still ongoing), learn their Year 5/6 spelling list and enjoy having some time away from technology!
Don’t forget to keep your eyes out on our parent page for an update on what we are getting up to in and out of the classroom.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
