Hello and welcome back to all the children who are now in Year 5 Jaguars. I understand that things are very different at the moment, from the staggered drop off and collection times, to the socially distanced play times that we are having. We are trying really hard to comply with the constantly changing guidance and the health and wellbeing of your children.
We are not sending reading diaries home, but your child will bring home a letter informing you which day of the week they will need to bring their reading book, in order to change it. Please ensure that you continue to read with your child as it is vitally important. Weekly spellings will still be sent home on a sheet on Friday and then tested the following Friday. You do not need to return this spelling sheet as we are trying to minimise the amount of materials being passed between home and school.
PE days are on Thursday and Friday, and as most of the lessons will be outdoors, could you send an outdoor PE kit in addition to an indoor one. I am available to speak to parents by telephone from Monday until Thursday. On Friday Mrs Lewer teaches the class all day. As we have staggered drop off and collection times now, unfortunately I will not be available to speak to you at the classroom door, but if you leave a message at the office via phone or email, I will return your call as soon as possible.
Please get in touch with any concerns or worries, I really want the children to have a happy and productive year of learning.
