Miss Thompson is the class teacher and Miss Fenwick is the teaching assistant. As your child moves into Upper Key Stage 2, we look forward to developing their independence, confidence and love of learning.

Reading with children is a pivotal part of their learning journey. It helps to grow their vocabulary and their understanding of the world around them. We take 20 minutes every day to teach Guided Reading in class and the children choose a book from the book corner to read silently for 10 minutes after lunch.

We also give the children the exciting opportunity to choose any book that they would like to read from the KS2 library. Our library slot is every Tuesday lunch time and the children can take their book home.

Children take home a reading book and have the opportunity to change this throughout the week. These are to be brought in to school each day and their reading record signed at least three times a week. Even though your child is in year 5 and may want to read to themselves, we would be grateful if you could hear them read aloud and for you to ask them questions about what they have read. 


Our PE lessons are on Monday afternoons . PE kits should be in school at all times. Earrings should be removed or covered with tape for PE lessons. 

Water Bottles 

Children should bring a water bottle to school everyday. Bottles should go home and be cleaned each night. 


For those of us who have opted in to homework, this is set on google classroom every Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and ask us.
