Cycle 2

What a fantastic start to the year! Year 5 have been working tirelessly and have already shown a huge amount of progress. We have won the attendance trophy many times and I hope that we will continue to do so.

The amount of children who are coming to school without their diary signed is becoming more common, therefore, I ask for your full cooperation to ensure your child is ready at home daily and has his/ her diary signed. Children receive a Class Dojo point for reading at home, therefore, this helps your child towards achieving 35 Dojos, to take part in the Dojo treat.


PE lessons are on Fridays only, as we also take part in swimming lessons on a Thursday. We suggest your child brings their kit in at the beginning of the week, to ensure that they do not forget it, and take it home on a Friday to be washed. Please ensure your child is wearing the correct PE kit with suitable footwear.

Homework diaries to be signed every night, after reading has taken place.
