Welcome back! We hope you’ve all had a fun but relaxing time over the past couple of weeks and are ready to start the new term with a bang.
This term is busy – as always – and starts with an exciting new history topic on Crime and Punishment. In addition to this, we look forward to building on our knowledge of South America as we explore the human impact on rainforests and other physical features. Unfortunately, Mr Grayson wouldn’t sanction a visit to South America but the children will be able to research valuable information via the internet and other educational material.

Children will continue to receive homework and, as always, will be expected to read at home and produce a journal on books they have read. However, we would like to remind you that children may produce journals on their own personal books from home as well as their school books. Furthermore, they may like to vary the content or layout of their journals. A comment in your child’s reading profile is always welcomed and communication between yourselves and your child’s teacher is always helpful. Children will also continue to receive two sets of spellings: one from their phonics teacher and one from their class teacher.
Class 18 now will go swimming this term and will begin their lessons on Monday 16th April. The day on which your child has P.E may now be different so we advise children to keep their kit in school.
Transition visits to Aldersley High School will also continue until half term.
We are also busy planning our summer term trip to Woodlands Activity Centre: more details to follow soon.
May we also remind you about parents’ evenings this week: April 18th and 19th.
As always, we appreciate your support.
Year 5 had a visit from a Police Community Support Officer. She talked to the children about safety and making the right choices. She also helped the children develop an awareness of legal consequences for 10 year olds.
Year 5 have been visiting Aldersley High School as part of our transition programme. They have been cooking - making cookies and pizza and bread. They will also be having French lessons.
