Return to school - Monday 8th March 2021

Just a few reminders for then...

  1. Please remember that Monday is now our PE day - come to school dressed in your PE kit. 
  2. Please bring back any equipment that was 'leant' to you by school. We are fully aware that the whiteboard pens may have run out, and the pencils may be close to the end, but we would really appreciate the return of the whiteboards and rulers. We would also like the exercise books that you have been using to be returned. 
  3. Power Maths books MUST be returned; we will be using them in our maths groups. 
  4. Get some rest! As of Monday, we are going to be back full time, so it's going to be tiring!


We hope that you are just as excited to be returning to school as we are - any queries over the weekend, please let us know via the email. See you Monday! laugh


In Spring 2, children’s PSHE sessions will focus on a Unique Programme for Year 5 and 6 pupils to strengthen their sense of identity, raise awareness of the influences around them and support them to choose their own better futures.


The ‘Choices’ programme aims to strengthen pupils’ own sense of identity while raising awareness of the influences around them, and has been proven to help build resilience in a range of situations. During the programme, pupils will explore how they make choices, what influences those choices and how to take greater responsibility for keeping themselves safe.


Homework - 05/03/21



Please check your MyMaths accounts and complete any tasks that have been assigned. 



For English, we would like you to write the final two plot points of the 'Gorilla' story. We have uploaded the guidance (with the lens, notes, and model sentence) in the files below - use this to help you. 


Extra task for next week

In preparation for the work that we will be doing in English next week, we would like you to 'interview' someone from your house - we would like to know their opinions about Boris Johnson's announcement of the restrictions (potentially) being full lifted on 21st June. 

Write down what they say and bring it to school by Wednesday! 

Have a lovely weekend! yes We look forward to seeing you Monday!
