Your teacher this year is Miss Slattery and your teaching assistant is Sue.

Welcome back to the children after the Easter break. We hope they enjoyed the Best of British week and it was the start of what will be a very busy term.

During the summer term, our topic will be ‘Walking Through Time’. The children will learn about dinosaurs, evolution and animals from around the world as well as their habitats. In science children will learn about plants and their different parts and their workings. They will also look at life cycles in a range of plants and then humans and animals.

PE Lessons
This term, children are doing PE on Thursdays and Fridays. Please can you ensure your child has a complete PE kit – the list of appropriate kit can be found in your child’s homeschool diary. It would be helpful if children had their PE kits in all week as we may need to occasionally swap PE days. Please ensure all PE kit has your child’s name in.

Forest School
After the half term holiday, Year 5 will be doing forest schools on Monday afternoons. More details to follow!

This term, we will be going to the West Midlands Safari Park, the Dinosaur Exhibition in Birmingham and we will be visiting the Birmingham Mosque. These will be fun and informative trips linked to our topic and RE. Letters for each trip will be sent out in due course.

Water bottles and sun hats
Please ensure that your child has a named water bottle in school. Also, as the weather improves, please ensure your child is suitably protected against the sun.

We are really looking forward to an exciting summer term! If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.
