Y5/6 Useful Information

Physical Education

We have PE every Thursday morning. Your child will need to bring to school their PE kit. Yellow t-shirt, black shorts/joggers and a pair of trainers in a bag.

Snack

As we promote Healthy Schools we ask that all children have healthy snack in school. This consists of either fresh fruit, dried fruit or yoghurt. We ask that all children bring their own water bottle into school which they can have unlimited access to throughout the school day.

Blended Learning

We will use Seesaw to keep you informed about your child’s learning in school. We will upload suggested ideas and activities that your child can do at home to give them a head start into the following weeks learning this will be distributed on a Friday afternoon, it will be uploaded via the platform Google Classroom.

Reading

In Year 5 and 6 we encourage reading as it is a passport to countless adventures. Every day we complete a reading task. We do individual and guided reading which is completed throughout the week. It is important that we read as much as possible, in school and at home. Reading does not always have to be in a book, we can practise our reading all of the time by reading story books, fact files, comics, recipes, posters, leaflets and even instructions. We use Oxford Owl for our reading in school and at home.

Worries and Concerns

As a school we feel that open and honest communication with parents is key. We welcome regular contact with parents via the messaging service on the Seesaw app we use within school. Should you have any worries or concerns about your child please voice these with your child’s class teacher and we will endeavor to put your mind at ease!
