Welcome to 2020!


Hello Year 5,


Happy 2020 and welcome to the spring term.  We have a fun-filled, busy term ahead.


In regards to swimming lessons, Penguins and half of the Eagles will continue swimming for the first part of the term and will finish on Monday 27th January.  The Owls and the other half of the Eagles will begin their lessons on Monday 3rd February and you will swim every Monday afternoon from this date. It is essential that you bring in your kit each week.  This includes a swimming costume, for girls and swimming trunks/shorts for boys, a towel and a bag to keep your kit in. A swimming hat is required for those with long hair.   Please also make sure that jewellery is not worn on this day, including watches and earrings, as you are not allowed to wear such items during swimming lessons.


On Wednesday 1st April, Year 5 will be performing in our International Evening.  All children will be participating in this school event.  More details will be given to you all nearer the time.


Please continue to practise your times tables and spellings each week and continue to use the Mathletics, Bug Club and ‘Times Table Rockstars’ websites.  Please continue to use the Word Mats and vocabulary sheets to support your learning.  They will help you to understand a wide variety of new vocabulary that you are learning in your lessons. 


We look forward to an exciting term,


Mr Mitchell, Miss Lusher, Mrs Broderick and Miss Sadanandan
