Class 5S - Deer
Welcome to Deers 5S
On Monday 18th, the children will be having their class Christmas party. Children are invited to come in non school uniform for the day but please rmember sensible clothing and footwear.
The children have also been told that they can bring in some party food to share with the class. They have been divided into two groups:
Sycamore and Horse Chestnut: something sweet
Oak and Willow: something savoury.
On Tuesday, those going to panto can also bring a snack and a drink for the interval.
On both occasions, no nuts or fizzy drinks please.
Mr Humbug Sees the Light!
Thank you for your support in ensuring the children are reading and enjoying their performances this week.
We have taken photos of the children in costume but as many of the year group do not have permission to have their photographs on the website, we are unable to post the pictures here. We have taken one for the newsletter that does not include these children.
All other photographs will be displayed in the classroom windows for you to view.
Please can you check that you have ticked the relevant boxes on the data collection sheets to allow us to share photos of your children on the class pages. This is particularly important for those children going on the Y5 residential.
Welcome to Year 5 - Deers Class
We will have a 'meet the teacher' meeting during the first few weeks back but in the meantime, I have set out some guidelines for this year to help you become familiar with a few things.
PE day is Thursday and will be taught by Mr Radley. Please come into school in school PE kit. As a reminder, this is a school logo (or plain) blue t shirt and blue shorts. For the colder days, plain black leggings or a plain black or navy blue tracksuit. Please make sure all kit is labelled with your child’s name. Children will also need plimsoles for indoor PE which should be brought in, in a named bag and left in school.
Homework will be set on Thursdays and will be expected to be completed by the following Thursday. This will be Maths Shed, Spelling Shed and First News iHub. It is important that children complete their set homework and seek help or guidance if they are unsure.
Children will have had a piece of homework set for the summer holidays, please ensure that this is brought in during the first week, ideally on the first Monday back. The letter given to the children is below for your reference.
Pencil cases and stationary.
If children are bringing pencil cases to school, it is important that they can fit into their trays in the classroom so please keep them small! They should have blue handwriting pens (not biro) and a glue stick if possible. We have lots of pens and pencils in school but they are welcome to have those too if they choose to.
Walking home and Mobile Phones.
To clarify, some parents in Year 5 like their children to start leaving school on their own, this includes if you are meeting your child at the park. This is NOT compulsory and completely up to you as parents to make that decision. If your child is leaving school without an adult, they must have signed permission. Letters will be given to children at the beginning of the school year. Similarly, some children are given mobile phones if they are leaving school on their own. They will also need a permission letter for this. Please do not send phones in unless completely necessary and with permission as the school takes no responsibility if they are lost or broken.
Swimming is a compulsory part of our PE curriculum for this term and 5S will begin their 5 week block in the second half of the Autumn term. Letters will come to you soon. As in previous years, please ensure boys do not wear long shorts, girls need a one piece swimsuit (preferably black) and swimming hats and goggles need to be worn.
I am contactable on the year 5 email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please ensure the teacher's name is in the subject box as this is shared with myself and Mrs Brock.
I have put onto this page an overview of the Autumn Term’s topics for your information which you will find in the 'class information' section.
I look forward to meeting you all during the course of the year.
