Welcome to 5C!
Hello and welcome to your child's new class page! Everything you need to know will be here throughout this year. There will be regular updates for yourselves as parents/carers, as well as lots of pictures to showcase our learning. Remember, if you ever need to talk, please contact me via email or the telephone and we can arrange a discussion at the earliest convenience. All of the children have settled in brilliantly and I am proud of them. It has been great getting to know them and I am looking forward to the autumn term ahead!
Reading books and records will start from Monday 13th September. We endeavour to promote a love for reading and encourage pupils to read a range of fiction and non-fiction books so that pupils can read widely and have can identify the features of different genres to use in their writing. Please continue to read to them and listen to them too. You are the perfect role model! A good technique is too read a page each, discuss the plot, word choices, characters and text as appropriate.
This will commence from Monday 13th September and will be posted via the school website (VLE) and if appropriate Purple Mash. A copy of your child's log in's have been placed in their reading record
In Year 5, our PE for the first part of the autumn term is Thursday. Please remember to send your child into school wearing their PE kit, including pumps/trainers and their school jumper.
Please remember to send your child into school in the correct uniform, with long hair tied up. Please ensure that jumpers, cardigans and coats are labelled with your child's name, your child wears sensible shoes and brings a coat day as we do go outside even in the rain!
Your child is welcome to bring in a healthy snack for their morning break time.
In our English text, This Morning I Met a Whale by Michael Morpurgo, the boy in the story is tormented because the children in his class don't believe him when he writes a 'true story' about meeting and talking to a whale. We worked as a class to write him a letter to help him feel better!
We do believe you! Don’t listen to anyone else, it’s your truth. You need to have confidence, bravery and determination to continue to tell the whale’s story.
Have courage, stand up to the bullies and non-believers. Don’t let them stop you. You don’t put people down; you lift them, you are the strong one. Tell the world about the pollution, animal cruelty, poaching and killing. Remember, when it rains, look for rainbows. When it’s dark, look for stars. So, keep going, never give up and reach for the stars.
Your friends and supporters, 5C.
