Remember to label your child’s Uniform

As we start the new term and in an attempt to avoid a mountain of lost property, please can you ensure that your child’s uniform is named.

It doesn’t have to be a special label, it can be just written on the garment somewhere so we can make sure we are able to return items straight away.

Your help with this would be gratefully appreciated.

Y5&6 – Welcome back Jaguar class!

Welcome back everybody to a brand new school year. I’m really looking forward to getting started and welcoming our new Y5&6s into the classroom once more. I hope you’ve had an enjoyable break and the children are all refreshed ready for the year ahead. Here are some of the details which are appropriate to the children in Jaguar class for this year.

Teacher: Mr G Hughes
Teaching Assistants / Intervention / 1 to 1 support: (Different days of the week):
Mrs N Davies / Mrs B Jones / Mrs G Harris
Associate teacher (Student teacher): Mrs G Samson

 

Other teachers during the week:
Mrs Kessel-fell (Music) Thursdays
Mrs Turner (PPA cover) Thursdays
The Wright Way Coaches (Connor / Lucy) Wednesdays and Fridays

 

PE and Sports Clubs

The teaching of PE shall continue to be on Wednesdays and Fridays. Children should attend school wearing their PE kits on these days. Our first PE session shall begin this Friday 3rd September. After school football clubs shall be starting on the week beginning 13th September. The KS2 GIRLS football club shall be on a Wednesday and the KS2 BOYS football club shall be on a Friday. Both clubs shall be from 3:15pm to 4:15pm and delivered by Connor from The Wright Way Coaching group. Further details regarding these clubs shall be heading your way by the end of this week.

Homework and Reading

Every Friday (apart from this week), the children shall be given a maths and reading homework, along with their weekly spellings. Please ensure that the children show pride in the way that they complete their homework, as well as using suitable writing equipment. The homework needs to be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest to allow me the time to check it prior to the next homework being given. I would like the children to be as independent as possible with their homework but if they need any support at any point, they can ask parents / myself the following day.

It would be very beneficial for the pupils if they could be reading aloud at home at least x3 per week. There shall be a termly class reading competition for the children who read aloud the most at home during the term. The children have been put into groups in the class as their shall be an individual and a group prize.

Class Dojo

The children in Y5 shall be bringing home information to you on Thursday regarding how to access our Class Dojo page. This will allow you to contact myself if and when necessary. For the parents of the pupils in Y6, it has remained the same as last year.

Curriculum: (See attached weekly timetable) This is a draft timetable and therefore will change slightly depending on the position of worships / assemblies during the day / week.

Kind regards

Mr G Hughes
