Brooke

Your teacher this year is Miss Slattery and your teaching assistants are Sue and Dawn.

Welcome back to school and Year 5!


Topic
Our Topic this term will be The Romans. For our class trip, we will be visiting Lunt Fort in Coventry. We will also be visiting the Birmingham Central Mosque this term as part of our RE topic.


PE Lessons
For PE this term the children will have swimming lessons on Monday afternoons. Can you please make sure that your children’s clothes are labelled so we can reunite any lost items with their owner!

Reading
Your child will be allocated a school reading book, which must be in school every day. It is important that your child reads regularly at home. Your child’s Bug Club account will also be updated with new books for them to read. Bug Club is designed to encourage your child to read for pleasure. Usernames and passwords remain the same as last year. If you have any questions or problems with login details, please let us know.

Homework
Homework grids were given out last term and the first piece is due on Friday 15th September. If your child is struggling to complete their homework, please let us know as early as possible and we will offer further help and support within school time. Spellings will be given out at the end of the first week. It is vital that children practise their spellings at home.

Water bottles and sun hats
Please can you ensure that your child has a water bottle in school with them every day, can these please be labelled with your child’s name. This is especially important whilst the warm weather stays with us.


We have a full and exciting term ahead of us. If you have any further questions, please feel free to make an appointment to speak to one of the team.
