A warm welcome back, I hope you have had a lovely time over the festive period I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a  happy new year! The children have settled back beautifully after the holidays. Spring Term brings us lots to look forward to especially the upcoming Conway residential (Tuesday 7nd- Friday 10th February).

An overview of some of the things we will be covering this half term has been uploaded to the school website. This term PE lessons will be on Mondays and Thursday- all children will need their kits, both indoor and outdoor, on these days. However, it is helpful if children have PE kits in school all week. Also please can you ensure your child has got an art shirt in school – I would hate for their beautiful uniforms to be spoilt!

A reminder of how we manage homework. In Year 5, children are expected to do no more than 90 minutes per week on homework and this includes their reading. We are trying to encourage the children to read at least 3 times a week at home, ideally with an adult, and we expect them to change their own books regularly it would be really appreciated if you could also encourage this and fill in your child’s reading diary. Each week they will have numeracy homework to complete together with literacy homework, except when a piece of creative homework has been set.  Creative homework will take the place of Learning Logs and no more than two will be set each half term.  Homework will be given out on a Friday and returned by the following Wednesday. In addition to this children may want to take advantage of the schools subscription to Sumdog and My Maths. For support with homework an afterschool club has been set up on a Friday if anyone needs to avail of this.

Thank you once again for your continued support and together with Mrs McCready and Mrs kavanagh, I look forward to continuing to work with you this year.  I hope we can continue to work together to ensure year 5 is a wonderful time for your child. If you wish to speak to me or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the staff as soon as possible. This can be done either through the school office, by emailing, or at the end of the day on the playground.

Yours sincerely,

Miss Kinsey
